President Obama follows this event with a speech, its goal being to inform the American people of the death of the man who had caused the death of so many loved ones, and achieves this by using rhetorical devices such as parallel structure and appeals to emotion. In the beginning of President Obama’s speech announcing the death of Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, he reminds the American people of the tragic events that took place on the morning of 9/11, when “nearly 3,000 citizens were taken from us.” The purpose of Obama painting this image back into people’s heads was to remind the American people of the severity of this tragedy and that this nationwide grief was caused by Osama bin Laden, and he gets this message across so well due to the use of appeal to emotion by stimulating feelings and make possible connections or sympathy towards the victims. He does so by creating an image of things such as “the empty seat
On April 4, 1968, Robert F. Kennedy gave his remarks on the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. Robert’s goal was to inform people on Martin Luther King’s journey and to strengthen people’s attitudes on the whole situation. Robert’s main points throughout the speech were how the country as a whole should move forward, why the states should not resort to violence but unity instead, and he also addressed that the country needed unity, love, and compassion. Robert began his speech with giving the rough news on Martin Luther King’s death. People reacted with gasps and cries, so Robert started to explain Martin’s goal and how he died pushing for a change. Robert connected his point of unity by asking the audience to not resort to hatred and violence, but to follow Martin’s dream of unity and peace.
Mass killing (murder) is defines as the act of murdering several or more people, typically simultaneously or over a relatively short period of time. The Boston Marathon Bombing and the massacre in South Carolina is two events that will never be forgetting in American history. Both massacres had huge impacts in the United States.

Over 75% of all Montgomery bus riders were African American, but unfortunately they were treated poorly on the buses. One day, they came together, and the people formed a massive boycott that caught the attention of everyone around the country.

One must walk in the right path, obeying God’s commandments and following His works. The fourth line states, “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil,” for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” In this verse, David announces that God protects and comforts him.

King later spoke before 8,000 people at the funeral for three of the girls (the family of the fourth girl held a smaller private service), fueling the public outrage now mounting across the
I read about people with disabilities being killed by the thousands which hit especially hard since I myself have a disability, it made me tear up, knowing that something that these innocent people had no control of got them killed. Something that could have brought people together and made them celebrate their differences instead divided them and caused them to be killed. I truly have a deeper understanding of all that jews and righteous gentiles sacrificed, i’ve learned to choose kindness when hate is so tempting, and to do the right thing no matter how

Along these lines, it is very important to prosecute the nazi war criminals in order to not forget the pain that the victims
Here, Oedipus is showing his sympathy and pity for his people and that he wants to help them. This is important because it shows that he is someone who is willing to undergo stress and sacrifice for his people’s wellbeing. Another time he shows his compassion is when he decides to find the murder of Liaos and says to Creon that he will “‘bring what is dark to light … [and] stand by you, as I should, to avenge the city and the city’s god’” (Fitts 9).
