The man killed his mother with neglect and because of that I can't watch a movie on a plane?” (5). Sedaris is clearly going haywire, because he can’t fully enjoy himself due to this “rude alcoholic”.

Aristotle is known for his creation of the analysis of rhetoric through ethos, pathos, and logos. I believe that in paragraph twenty-two the “Letter from Birmingham Jail,” King builds ethos from and his cause amongst his readers. He does so by using examples from history. According to Aristotle ethos is the credibility of the speaker and there are things that can aid in building ethos:” good sense, goodwill, and good moral character (Rhet., pg. 60).” In paragraph twenty-two of King’s Letter he proves good sense by using examples of past situations similar to the one our country was in at that time.
One of the main and most important lessons society can learn from this book is that if you care so much about your beliefs and you stick to them, that in as little as 50 years they can be the new normal. Another lesson society can learn from The Watsons go to Birmingham is that if you have a family and children and you love them very much then and you laugh together and have fun together that it doesn’t matter what color your skin is, you can be great! You don’t have to go to a separate drinking fountain or a separate swimming pool, but we could be united! And those are some of the most important lessons I felt society could from this
He then goes about how his grandma would hit on the head for anything because he did not do as she said and then he would start crying and she would question, “Why you crying?” (he repeats this line over and over). As he continues to cry his grandma is like I will give something to actually cry about. In the background you can hear people laughing as he tells the joke and then the camera does a close up on the public and they are just nodding in agreement to what George Lopez just said about how it was growing

I was the most petrified living being on the earth at the time. I felt like the belt was insecure and that I could easily fall off. I was screaming random things to forget that I was ziplining on the top of my lungs, I wouldn't dare to open my squinting eyes. I was pinching my aunt’s arm so tightly, it started bleeding like squeezing ketchup out of a bottle. I was jumping up and down excitedly with the most relieved look on my face extremely happy that the ride was over and I made it back alive.
To illustrate, it is said in the book that “Then there were shouts and the pounding of feet, and the Socs jumped up and left me lying there, gasping …. By then I had figured that all the noise I had heard was the gang coming to rescue me” (6-7). This shows that Ponyboy’s friends came to the rescue and saved him from the Socs when they heard him yelling. If not for these friends, Ponyboy could have been seriously injured, or even killed. Moreover, S.E.
Louie was known for doing things that he was not supposed to, “When Louie came home drenched in oil after diving into an oil rig well and nearly drowning, it took a gallon of turpentine and a lot of scrubbing before his father recognized him again. Thrilled by the crashing of boundaries, Louie was untamable. In Torrance, a rebel was born.” (7) This shows Louie in a rebellious look because without thinking he would do things that could have gotten him killed. He would slipshod for a lot of things he thought were fun. Many people usually start to smoke at the age of 18 and they usually start to drink at the age of 21 but not Louie, he started to smoke when he was 5 and started to drink when he was 8, “At five, he started smoking, picking up cigarette butts while walking
“He shook her; and her body flopped like a fish. And then she was still, for Lennie had broken her neck.” Based on Lennie’s childlike manner he panicked and was physically unable to let go of Curley’s wife’s hair. It’s almost like he was holding onto the only thing that made him feel safe in the environment that he was in at the time. Based on her screaming for help she threatened George and Lennie’s relationship as George would be angry with Lennie for what he was doing and they’d have to leave the current ranch their working on. Therefore he covered her mouth and thus led to her neck being snapped.
Choking back a sob, he turned and stumbled toward the door, but before he made it halfway across the room, two muscular arms wrapped him in a tight embrace. He immediately struggled against the unexpected contact, but Penhall held him firm, and eventually he gave up the fight. With a sob, he collapsed against his friend’s broad chest and allowed all his pent up pain and torment to flow through his tears. Shocked by the level of Tom’s distress, a rush of clumsy platitudes tumbled from Penhall’s lips. “It 's okay,” he murmured into Tom’s sweet-smelling hair.
