Pathos is shown when Jack began to sing in the video, however, it is also shown in the lyrics. He talks about being heartbroken and dealing with it in unhealthy ways, to the point where he tries to kill himself. People will typically get an emotional reaction from this because either they have been in that situation or they cannot imagine being in that situation. The ethos in this song is that Jack is very credible to be telling this story because it is the story of life and there is nobody more qualified to tell it than he is. This video also appeals to logos because Jack understands that he is at a low point and, to most people, the logical thing to do would be to recognize that and fix it.
Even though I already knew a small amount of information about the Lakota tribe, having an actual first-hand experience was a different story. Meeting Frank Waln and the Sampson Brothers was and an amazing experience that opened my eyes. While incorporating humor in the way they told their stories, every word spoken and every step taken had an enormous amount of soul into them. In every lyric Frank Waln said went straight to my heart. His words were full of so much history and soul that it was impossible not to tap my feet to the music.
Speaking for myself, I thoroughly enjoyed this memoir and would recommend it to anyone. While Sheff recounts books that he had read about dealing with an addict, he says it, “showed [him] that it is possible to love a child who is lost” (11).

Throughout the memoir, Sheff’s need for Nic to become sober increases and with this, the raw desperation is also shown as he says he, “wish[es] for a near miss for Nic” (274).
Jefferson was only doing what makes him happy and enjoy everything in his life according to his poem when he says “life, life’s too weighty? Too long a haul, sir? I lived past eighty. I liked it all sir.” Lastly, as a result of Jefferson’s amazing skill and writing, he impacted not only his country, but the whole world, even though he was criticized according to his poem when he says “they call you rascal? They called me worse”.
First, I could definitely realize the power of positive thinking. When Brian was on the plane and after he crashed into the lake, he was hopeless and frustrated and full of self-pity. However, when he recalled the words of his old English teacher, Mr.Perpich, who constantly encouraged his students to think positively and to
This is a case where ethical, legal or financial complications are not a matter of concern because Shinedown covered this song with the utmost respect towards Skynyrd. In fact, Skynyrd helped Shinedown with a couple demos in the past (“Shinedown...”). This is truly the type of cover that artists should be playing. It owns a solid moral background and is played depicting the true purpose of music - expression. The band had Skynyrd’s permission to perform the song, setting it apart from most covers from the

Similar to Gideon, I do not consider myself as faithful to the Lord as is expected from me, frequently questioning if He would assist me during onerous times. However, by discovering the relation, I have come to understand that not all heroes must start off valiant and fully trusting in God. At first, Gideon was driven by his fear, but he developed and realized that he could rely on
In Salvation it seems as if religion is being forced, and like Langston in Salvation I didn 't see Jesus or religion as others did. One of the statements made in Salvation that I found to be interesting was " But I was really crying because I couldn 't bear to tell her that I had lied ". I personally find this to be interesting for a few reasons. One of reasons is
