Syrian Refugee Crisis Melissa Fleming is the head of communications for the UN's High Commissioner for Refugees. In a spech she did on TedTalk.com she talks about a 19 year old Syrian refugee named Doah who fled from Egypt with her boyfriend and 500 other refugees. While on their journey across the Mediterranean Sea their boat was attacked and ends up sinking. Doah did everything she could to stay alive while she waited for someone to rescue her and two small children that were given to her by a couple of parents who ended up drowning. Melissa Fleming uses the rhetorical strategies of pathos, logos,and ethos to convey her story of the capsized Syrian refugee boat, but her strength lies mainly in her use of pathos.
After her husband died fighting for freedom. The government didn’t just take away freedom from people, they took away fathers from kids. They took families away from their homes, they took away life, hope, and safety from millions of their own people. A 105 year old man who spent his whole life in Syria says “The crisis is getting worse and worse”. As far as I can see, nothing will stop it anytime
The Armenian Genocide, the first genocide of the 20th century, resulted in a major exodus of nearly an entire population. This event is still largely ignored by the Turkish government, those responsible for the horrific incident that led to the deaths and deportations of millions of Armenians. Throughout the late 19th century and early 20th century, Armenians were pushed from their native origins in Turkey as a result of a brutal genocide, which consequently led to their escape to the United States to seek a better life through economic opportunities and avoiding persecution. Armenians experienced push factors to immigrate to America through the opportunity of a better life as well as the influx of new economic prospects. In the 16th century,
However, providing a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants is favored by the majority of American citizens, and research shows that they help the American economy and lower the national crime rate well below the current statistics. Immigration policies are a vital part of any nation’s economy, and any changes can induce drastic changes. Canada, a nation with radically different immigration policy than the United States of America, enjoys the benefits of multiculturalism. Their immigrant population is the most educated in the world, and despite growing the xenophobia in the west their population is still highly in favor of an influx of immigrants (Tepperman 5). It does not seem that, Canada suffers as a result of their immigration policies.
Suicide is now becoming the leading cause of death among the U.S. military veterans. Suicide occurs when a person chooses to end their life due to they see suicide as the only way out of the problem they may be in. The stress generated by war is one of the many reasons these soldiers choose suicide. Some could not endure what they had been through while at the war. The Department of Veterans Affairs have several programs and services in place to help prevent Veterans from getting to the point of committing suicide.
The United States tried to protect Haitian Immigrants but has ultimately failed. Immigration policies are only impactful if the system is willing to protect them. In 2010, Haiti was struck by an earthquake that killed thousands and displaced millions of people, and many of them came to the United States seeking asylum. Due to the increase of Haitian immigrants, Congress instituted the Temporary Protected Status (TPS). While Temporary Protected Status has been granted to groups from El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Honduras, the government continues to fail them by ignoring their importance.
The Emperor tells himself that the new invention is not worth risking the little beauty he has now. By removing the creator, the Emperor eliminates all possibilities of harm coming to his perfect and beautiful world, but he also denies himself future opportunities to experience new kinds of beauty. Also, by killing the inventor, he discourages other inventors from creating new things that would benefit the country. The emperor has misplaced his belief in the outcomes of taking a risk. He denies himself and his country new opportunities that would lead to growth and betterment in their society.
Before the fighting began, the Athenians believed that “war [was] inevitable,” (Thucydides 1998, I.144) illustrating that in the unjust society, there is deep instability that will lead to war; even though there may be peace, it will not be sustainable without justice. Similarly, in the Corinthians’ plea to the Spartans, they say that peace is only sustainable if there is justice (Thucydides 1998, I.71). Furthermore, the short-term peace that is achieved by the warring states does not last because it was not wrought with just intentions. Both states signed the treaties because they suffered defeats and it was in their interests, not because they wanted to do what was just. (Thucydides 1998, V.15, V.36).
In the quote “on October 22, 1707, at the Scilly Isles four homebound British warships ran aground and nearly two thousand men lost their lives. ”(Sobel, P.6). Sobel accounts a few examples of how the lack of being able to plot longitude on a grid would result in getting lost on sea. It also shows how this problem was an issue that astronomers, sailors, and even philosophers struggled with finding a solution to for centuries, making the asperity of the problem much more severe. This gives the reader a bit of a understanding of the importance of longitude and further convinces the reader in her favor of how important Harrison’s invention was to the
By doing this, he would successfully prevent the peasant uprising in 1525, and render Martin Luther's movement motionless. However, to make this a reality, the Pope would have to regain the trust of the people. Considering that he was not seen as the most responsible with funds, if he were to lift the taxes on the lower class, they would begin to suspect a trap or a scam. To really make them trust him, he would have to make a big gesture to show his credibility. One way to do this would be to find the corrupt church officials, and removing them from their positions.
America became a nation who questioned the intentions of every Middle Eastern person. Today, there are Middle Eastern men and women who are pulled over for “suspicious activity.” Some people will even walk a little faster or in a different direction when a Muslim walks down the street. September 11, 2001 will remain the day when children became orphans and parents became childless. As those giant towers collapsed, so did our sense of security and the “safest place on Earth” became a home of fear.
The tragedy at sea that was the USS Indianapolis has greatly changed how the US Navy is seen ever since the exoneration of the ship’s captain, Captain McVay. Most people tend to focus on the case and court martial of Captain McVay instead of the tragedy itself. In recent years the failure of the USS Indianapolis along with the approximate 300 bodies left in the sea with it have been discussed, exponentially so in Left For Dead by Peter Nelson. The information upon the sailors and their deaths can be easily found but yet most do not take the next step to see why these men died the awful, horrendous deaths they did. These men at sea were set up for failure in the boat and in the sea itself after the ship capsized.
A Ukip candidate has sparked outrage after criticising the parents of the Syrian child pictured washed up dead on a beach - for being "greedy for the good life in Europe". Peter Bucklitsch, who finished fourth in the Wimbledon constituency at the General Election, shocked Twitter users by claiming that the three-year-old Aylan Kurdi was "well clothed & well fed". He suggested the boy 's parents should not have risked his life by trying to make the 13-mile journey across the Mediterranean from Turkey to the Greek island of Kos.
War in Syria DBQ Essay Since the beginning of the Syrian war in 2011, many have fled the country and settled in the neighboring states, including Lebanon, Turkey, Iraq, Jordan, and Egypt. Currently, there are 4 million Syrian refugees registered in the region. By mid-2015, the World Bank’s estimated cost of the Syrian war for the Middle Eastern countries is $35 billion. This load is too heavy to endure, and this is why refugees have been aiming for European countries for a couple of years now.
