It merely exaggerates the good and evil in us.” There are many downsides to war but having a program where young people can find some good in there life is priceless. In reference to current to US military members it’s important to remember war has changed from the past, the fact that trust can change the battlefield and how the
“No one hates war like a soldier hates war” Tommy Franks, an american general had once said . Personal experiences can greatly effect us in various ways. One aspect is writing. During the times of conflict, different poets were influenced by war, which influenced their poems. Wilfred Owen was one of them.
If Bush would’ve added humor to the speech it would effect the message because it would be inappropriate. Bush really executed this speech by using lots of rhetorical devices, fallacies, and loaded words. “The victims were in airplanes or in their offices: secretaries, business men and women, military and federal workers, moms and dads, friends and neighbors.” This is one of the pathos in his speech. Emotional words Bush uses were “peace and security,””prayer,” and these words are meant to touch the hearts of all Americans that were hurt by this tragedy. Logical words that Bush uses were,” freedom and opportunity,””America.” Bush’s language affects because he used words that would help America get through this hard, tragic time.
What is the connection between one of the texts we read and your I-Cubed topic? How were you inspired by the text? The connection between the book, The Things They Carried and Veteran Poverty is evident: There is a large correlation to the physical and mental aspects of war that have plagued U.S. veterans from returning to normal lives. In the book, the Vietnam War is explored and the stories of the men are displayed as though we were there to witness them. This shows just how real and how traumatizing these events can be.
He was speaking for the victims of the war and how it can hurt both sides of the war and not just one. I think money is one of the main points in his speech. The quote “A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death” (King) shows his view on the war and I agree with his view. I think the money should have been spent on things back home that supports our citizens and not on war. Another quote that I like is “Communism will never
How the world, one day will become as one because of how diverse we are. There were many bad consequences as well but it was more of beneficial consequences. “Imagine all the people sharing all the world, you”, wouldn’t that be nice? Article: The Vietnam War: How they saw it from both sides of the divide Song: Fortunate Son The article, “The Vietnam War: How they saw it from both sides of the divide”, explained how both sides of the divide saw the war. It was perspectives from a U.S. veteran who who helped execute a mass evacuation and a retired Sergeant Major from the North Vietnamese forces.
If I could choose any topic of history to study, it would be a hard choice between The Great War and The Great Depression. The Great War is the first recorded war. I would like to know the real reason the war started and how it impacted the ones that have come behind it. I would also choose the great depression simply because of the debt that we are currently in. Many people believe that history repeats itself, this makes me wonder if the nation will revert in to such a bad
Many examples of the worst, but also the best of people spring forth from the events that were the Holocaust. One can look back at these events for examples of intense human emotion and suffering. Although these dark times degraded and beat the human spirit, survivors from the Holocaust still find hope and look for ways to improve society and look selflessly for ways to alleviate the suffering of others. Speaking first to the United States government, and then to individuals all around the world, Wiesel, a respected survivor of the Holocaust, hopes to raise awareness to the suffering of many victims in many circumstances, and to encourage the United States and its government to stay away from the trap of indifference. Wiesel effectively employs
Is it time to lower the drinking age to 18? Lowering the drinking age has been much in debate and a kind of hot discussion among political parties even, who have been determined to lower it from 25 to 18. The youth of a nation when reaches 18 years gets the right to vote and serve in the military which makes him quite responsible and mature enough to analyze what’s wrong and right and that accounts to the fact that he has every right to take the decision of consuming alcohol rather than being debarred from the same. The earlier Sheila Dikshit government faced a tug-of-war situation where the decision of lowering the drinking age from 21 to 18 was put to halt due to the BJP in opposition raising debate. While the debate goes round the table,
“Dulce et Decorum Est” is similar to “ Who’s for the Game” because they both rhyme and they both talk about a aspect of the war. For example they both say that the war is not going good and the country and its soldiers are suffering. They are also similar because they both use similes and pathos to express how they feel about the war. The differences between the poems are they have different ways that they appeal to the reader. For example the author for” Dulce et Decorum Est” uses more of a depressing connotation and the author for “Who’s for the Game” uses more of a welcoming persuading view.
The war affected them in different ways causing them to have post-traumatic stress disorder which affects a lot of soldiers and being able to explain their experiences through different views can also open up different views for others. I think Billy 's way of coping with his experience was seen through time traveling and aliens encounter, which you could say has affected him psychologically. For Manchester his flashbacks were nightmares of the war and that is why his novel was the way it was. These two novels displays the war differently which people will remember the war differently. Like I said soldiers remembers their experience differently which affects the ways these novels are
Conflicts during the 1930s through the 1970s were great, the mainstream idea would be due to World War II but what was significantly missed is the struggle that was at home. Different groups of individuals had to fight for their homes and jobs due to the unwillingness of equality of the white man. The values during this time were missing due to the ideas of a man who was out at war. Many different movements began and were impacted during this time women, African Americans, and Natives were all tremendous impacts on the war. Yet it seemed to take second place to the white man in history, even in areas that they significantly impacted on the war.
