He uses Pathos to give receivers a feeling togetherness and unity, which is much needed for America in order to succeed against Japan. This can be seen when he said “Our people, our territory, and our interests” or “Very many American lives have been lost”. Especially the last quote causes the receivers to feel anger and revenge seeking. He also uses Ethos when emphasizing his credentials: “As Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense”. By emphasizing his credentials the population agrees with Roosevelt 's tactic of fighting Japan.
So every elder and experienced councilman/ among my people supported my resolve / to come here to you’” (Heaney 409-417). This first example suggests that Beowulf and his men come to Denmark to fight and help the people because he has heard about the terrible things Grendel has done, and thus starts the
He paid homage to those friends because some of them passed away fighting and O’Brien wanted to show what made them special, especially because the men who fought and died in Vietnam often came home disrespected and ignored. Every story helped to shine light on the men who lost the fight. O’Brien went into incredible detail about what exactly made each man in his platoon special, especially if there was a story to lay to rest. By sharing these stories, themes of homage and sacrifice were explored as O’Brien hoped to explain what their friendship was and why it was so
When the atrocities of world war two are brought up, many people think of the biggest travesties the war caused, like the holocaust and Pearl Harbor. They think of the Jews and Americans slaughtered with almost ungodly techniques, and the countries that committed these war crimes. But one such case never comes to the mind of the average Joe, Unit 731 and its founder, Shiro Ishii. Ishii was born into a rich family on June 25th, 1892 in the Kamo district, Chibe prefecture, and southeast of Tokyo (Byrd 15). Shiro joined the military as soon as possible due to his great love for Japan and the emperor (Ammentorp).
When he got back we both fished for another hour and we were gonna call it a day. Every time we caught a fish it smelt really bad because the fish sometimes just flat out had a disgusting smell. After an hour we caught a lot more pretty fish with black stripes down them and so we were gonna call it a day because it was like 5:00 in the afternoon. So we packed up and gathered all of our stuff and we looked at our phone’s
Last but not least, Odysseus and I show confidence in lots of different ways. During the Odyssey, Odysseus is put into many situations where most people would just hang their head and give up. However, he stayed pretty positive. First, after Odysseus and his men escaped from the cyclopes by making a huge wooden spear then they “rammed it straight in his crater eye” (906) Once Odysseus was safe on his ship, he started yelling back to the Cyclops, “tell [them] Odysseus, raider of the cites, took you eye”. He had no problem with owning up to what he did.
Soon Louie became so traumatized by the events of War World II, he became an alcoholic. Once Louie’s friends and family realized how bad his drinking habit was they begged him to stop, but their words were not convincing enough. Then one day Louie turned to God and stopped drinking. Hillenbrand wrote “ When they entered the apartment, Louie went straight to his cache of liquor. It was the time of night when they usually took hold of him, but for the first time in years, Louie had no desire to drink”(383).
When I showed my family and friends the photos and videos I shot in Sri Lanka, I find myself uncomfortable on their sympathy for the dire poverty. But I couldn’t pinpoint why I felt that way. The semester after the hot and humid summer, I was reading James Agee’s Let Us Now Praise Famous Men.
Those who were able to continue fighting, hardened themselves to the conflict using rum rations. Rum rations were given at stand to and stand down every day with an extra two ounces being given if no attack came. Rum rations became liquid courage for the soldiers, helping them throughout their daily horrors to perform their duties to the best of their abilities. Private Boyd of the 8thn Bn. recalled ‘if we had not had the rum we would have died.” (firstworldwar.com) Trench warfare strained soldiers mental and physical health.
On Odysseus’s odyssey back to Ithaca, he was faced with many problems. He was subdued many times due to the monster and gods of the Greek times. Odysseus was faced with many conflicts on his journey back home and using his intelligence, brawn, and quick thinking overcame the problems he faced. Around the beginning of Odysseus’s odyssey, he was faced with his most dangerous adversary and using his strength and intelligence he managed to escape. In “The Odyssey” it states“ We rammed it deep in his eye and I leaned on it as a shipwright turns would in planking.”
With much amazement, they discovered that Cebu is largely sheltered from the dismays of war they left days prior. The locals are happy, stores are
The sound of the river was deafening as we made are trek to the warships. Soon we heard the roar of the men as they celebrated a "victory" before the end. I was going to get my revenge on the Americans in one way or the other. My feet were aching and my stomach was rumbling as night fall became closer. Brooklyn stopped sobbing and instead of being sad she held a look of determination.
This made people think they couldn 't be hurt by one. On the day of the hurricane the island flooded and Isaac told people to stay in their homes, but almost all the houses collapsed. When Isaac figured out the storm was a hurricane, he tried to warn as many people as possible, which saved a lot of people. I believe that Isaac was both a hero and too slow to react. He was too slow to react when he didn 't know that it was a hurricane until a few hours before and told people things that got them killed.
The reaction to Hurricane Katrina to me is shockingly similar to events that have happened both in the past and today in New Orleans. In the weeks after Katrina, the people of New Orleans were devastated by the death of family members, and the loss of their businesses, but eventually they began to rebuild the city just like they did after Hurricane Betsy. Since the construction of the levees
Bono uses identifiable allusions to achieve his purpose. He does this by using these allusions as examples of these inspirational leaders that he is referring to as well as showcase the importance of their protests. For example, the author alludes to the famous leader Martin Luther King Jr. by singing, “Early morning, April 4, shot rings out in the Memphis sky, free at last, they took your life. They could not take your pride” (U2 21-24).
