Parental Emotions: In the poem the author talks about how his son calls him for a hug but because he was busy with some work, he makes his son wait. The author probably feels guilty when he says, “How long was he standing there like that, before I came?” He felt bad because he had been working rather than spending time with his son, which is kind of his obligation towards his son. The relationship between the two is more important than his work.
Rhetorical Analysis on Border Patrol States After a bad experience with border patrol agents Leslie Silko, a Native American writer felt the need to fight back in the only way she knew possible, by writing “Border Patrol States.” She eloquently writes an article that is timeless and relatable even today about the unjustness people feel at the border checkpoints. Silko’s article is able to pull feeling from the audience through the use of multiple rhetorical devices. It’s clear while reading the article that Silko was raw with emotion while writing the piece, but the article falls short in the author's overuse of pathos and limited evidence to support her claim. Silko begins building her argument with anecdotal evidence and reputable sources, citing convincing facts, and successfully utilizes emotional appeals; however her attempts to appeal to readers’ emotions weaken her credibility and ultimately, her argument.
My father and I visited my uncle’s grave recently and my father told me that without me, he would still most likely be depressed about his brother. He said that even though it hurts knowing he can’t be with us anymore, he’s glad to have a son that makes him smile and laugh constantly. He told me that I was the light of his life and to never stop making people smile. He thanked me for helping him get through that rough patch in his life and with the big move to Rancho. I never felt so good in my life and discovered that making people laugh was what I was born to do.
found Stella Young's speech to be extremely profound. It is very true that we used what she calls "inspiration porn" to objectify one group of people for the benefit of another group of people. Her speech opened my eyes and changed the way I perceived disability. As an Occupational therapy student and as an individual who spent years working with people with different stories (mental and physical disability), I do not agree with that quote, "The Only Disability is a Bad Attitude". There are countless number of people out there with legitimate health problems and their attitude has nothing to do with it.
Mitford takes note that “not one in ten thousand has an idea of what actually takes place” (310) and there is so much more beneath the surface of things. Mitford also uses oxymorons such as, “he has done everything in his power to make the funeral a real pleasure for everybody” (314). It’s clear that a funeral isn’t a “pleasure”, it’s an incredibly sad experience (for most people) and it just goes to show the depth Mitford will go to portray her aggressive opinions. As Mitford continues to describe the shocking details about embalming she gets into a routine and systematically gives us disconcerting imagery every other paragraph, such as, a corpse “whose mouth had been sewn together” (312). Mitford’s style is informative and she doesn’t shy away from being brutally open by using unsettling imagery, which once again makes her case even
Drake sings with an angry tone, he sounds mad at all the fake people he had to deal with it throughout his career and now that he finally made it and he is famous, all that same people that doubting him in the past are acting like they love him just because he made it. “I’m on my worse behavior!
