This is a good rhetorical appeal because everyone knows about Martin Luther King Jr., Obama connects with us emotionally by using the fact that Dr. King enrolled into this college at the age of 15, he used his passion to study harder, and with the help of his college, Martin Luther King Jr. is able to thrive towards his dreams. Another example of pathos is when Obama says, “ I was raised by a heroic single mom, wonderful grandparents…”(Obama 8).

Strong families in the church would translate into a stable church empowered to fulfill God’s mandate for this world.
(1) After completing part three of Molly Worthen’s Apostles of Reason, the section on Bonhoeffer brought back great memories. My father not only loved Kierkegaard, but Bonhoeffer as well. As a young adolescent, I found my father’s copies of The Cost of Discipleship as well as his Letters and Papers from Prison. I plodded through them but was really inspired by his style and gentle spirit.

Both of them agreed that the goal was to have black people be fully engaged in society. This meant they should be active in the economic as well as the political sections of society.
