The Book I chose to explore was I Survived: The Eruption of Mount St. Helens, 1980. I chose this book because I have read a couple of I Survived books and found them to be very interesting since they are based on true stories. This is a non-fiction book because the events that occur actually happened. In addition, the main characters Jessie, Sam and Eddie were real people who experienced this destructive volcanic event.
Michaelangelo Landgrave and Alex Nowrasteh (2017), a doctoral student in political science and an immigration policy analyst, argue in their informative article The DREAMer Incarceration Rate that DREAMers are less crime-prone than Native-born Americans. Landgrave’s and Nowrasteh’s (2017) purpose is to insist that Congress should expand the parameters of a future legalization for DREAMers. They employ logos, ethos, as well as juxtaposition, in order to convey to their readers the idea that DREAMers are less crime-prone than Native-born Americans.

One moment it was a normal day and the next moment will forever be ingrained within the minds of an entire nation. The first plane hit at 8:46 a.m. and the second at 9:03 a.m., leaving 2,819 people dead. September 11, 2001 will always be remembered as a day of great destruction, a day of great loss. September 11, 2001 was the day two planes flew into the World Trade Center, forever changing the way of life for all of America. After this horrible act of terrorism the president of the United States gave a speech addressing the nation. This speech, George W. Bush’s 9/11 Address to the Nation, was remarkable for its use of metaphors, anaphoras, and allusions.

Have you ever wondered why New York City is one of the most protected cities in the world? On September 11, 2001 there were four terrible attacks in the United States of America. There were attacks on both of the Twin Towers in New York City, one on the Pentagon in Washington DC, and one was headed for the either the Capitol building or the White house in Washington DC but was taken down in a field in Pennsylvania. The plane that was taken down was crashed into a field because two brave men knocked out the pilots and put the plane down in a safe location without many people. Over 3,000 people were killed in the attacks.
“If you vote for RJ, you obviously enjoy 9/11.” This was a tweet from a teen in RJ Khalaf’s class when he was running for student body president. The teen said this because RJ was Muslim, but RJ knows that about 98% of Muslims are just like him. That they don’t mean any harm, like the terrorists from 9/11 did. Also, a 7th-grade girl, Helaina Hovitz, survived 9/11. Even though there was a major amount of terror, there is still hope from the day September 11th, 2001.
The day started out just like any other regular day In New York. Kids going to school, adults rushing to work, everyone was happy. Then everything changed. People running from from their work sites, kids rushing back home from school, everyone calling their friends and family. If you didn't see what happened, you heard it. If you didn't hear it, then you heard about it on the radio or from the TV or maybe you were even informed from a phone call. Cries and screams pierced the air. News channels scattered everywhere trying to get the latest updates.
There are certain days in history that are memorable to people everywhere. Thinking back on significant days in his life, Thomas Beller explains the way he remembers September 11th every time he is reminded of this tragedy. When anyone brings up the 9/11 attack, it means something to Beller; this was not just another average day in his life. In Beller’s fiction work “Ashen Guy: Lower Broadway, September 11, 2001” he uses details and imagery to explain his story.
