Bush effectively executes his 9/11 speech and uses rhetorical devices to catch the citizens attention, calm the America people and unite them together again. Bush addresses the audience and the problem as a catchy first sentence. “Our…fellow citizens, our way of life…our very freedom…” Due to Bush repeating “Our” he utilizes the device of anaphora to hook the reader’s attention. The president starts to tell his audience that the terrorist attack might have threatened their freedom and way of life but will never successfully take it. Bush uses the
When Wiesel makes it clear that he has suffered personal loss, he is evoking an emotional response from his audience. By stating that he senses their presence “The presence of my parents, that of my little sister.” the audience empathizes with him and the horror of the Holocaust is made more clear for them. They cannot only understand his feelings; they can connect to them which strengthens their understanding of the need to act whenever they witness inhumanity. His recollections about his experience as a young boy makes the horror real and urgent for the audience: “I remember his bewilderment, I remember his anguish. It all happened so fast.” (paragraph 4) The audience’s inevitable emotional response to these memories is one of deep sadness and empathy.
The general is able to express his thoughts and feelings well through his thoughtful and perfectly placed words full of emotional pathos. He tells of soldiers meeting their demise unquestioning, uncomplaining, and with faith in their hearts (“American Rhetoric: General Douglas MacArthur -- Sylvanus Thayer Award Address”). Such things evoke emotions of sympathy, melancholy, and not to mention feelings of pride. MacArthur even goes as far as to say “if you lose, the nation will be destroyed” (“American Rhetoric: General Douglas MacArthur -- Sylvanus Thayer Award Address”). This brings about a flash of fear across the minds of both soldiers and soldiers-to-be alike.
President, George W. Bush, in his “ Address to the Nation on 9/11” speaks to the American people to address what has happened and what the plan is to fix the disaster. George W. Bush’s purpose is to give a sense of hope, security, and relief in a scary and grief filled time. He adapts to a feeling of unity that calls all Americans to come together in this crisis. In his speech, George W. Bush first talks about how even though America was hurt by these attacks we were not broken. He goes on to talk some about how amazing the American people’s response to the situation was and how people came together in the hard time.
Just as the narrator faced several accusations of betrayal throughout the novel, these accusations were essential in making a difference for the narrator. For example, his rebellion against the Brotherhood caused him to find his true identity one who desires change in society. Similarly, All American Boys taught that the same lesson is still alive today. In the novel, Quinn’s dangerous move to wear the shirt in support of Rashad was clearly a betrayal to his friend, Paul Galluzzo. Nevertheless, his betrayal was motivated by a desire to fight for justice in the world, despite angering his friends.
Many examples of the worst, but also the best of people spring forth from the events that were the Holocaust. One can look back at these events for examples of intense human emotion and suffering. Although these dark times degraded and beat the human spirit, survivors from the Holocaust still find hope and look for ways to improve society and look selflessly for ways to alleviate the suffering of others. Speaking first to the United States government, and then to individuals all around the world, Wiesel, a respected survivor of the Holocaust, hopes to raise awareness to the suffering of many victims in many circumstances, and to encourage the United States and its government to stay away from the trap of indifference. Wiesel effectively employs
Defeat “Defeat” is the word that rings in the heads of those people involved in the Bombing of Pearl Harbor written in the book “The USS Arizona: The Ship, the Men, the Pearl Harbor Attack, and the Symbol That Aroused America” by Joy Waldron Jasper and James P. Delgado. Throughout the book, the writers complement the credibility of the information by taking into consideration it is actual accounts and makes emotional connections with the readers as they talk about the tragedies that the men encountered and the amount of people who fought for the country and died. Lastly, the writers display their emotions by realizing the United States was just attacked and nothing is ever going to be the same again. George W. Bush, a famous president, in his famous speech on September 11th, 2001, also deals with
This speech is very empathetic. The adjectives he uses in explaining the emotions that the the 9/11 attacks left on the audience are strong. Using a phrase like "a continuing, awful agony they must endure day by day". So he acknowledges his audiences pain first. Then he tells them how the worlds thought and prayers are with them but admits he is sure that doesnt help them and is "hopelessly, utterly inadequate" attempt.
He advises the American government to not be indifferent to victims of injustices, he also hopes that people in the twenty first century will be indifferent. The entire basis of this speech was to evoke emotions in the audience to effect change, so Wiesel uses a lot of pathos to support his ideas. He is attempting to get these politicians and important societal figures to listen to what he is saying and show compassion to the victims of injustice all over the world. In the introduction
He went out and warned everyone that he was sent to. Paul Revere helped many people by warning them, because if he didn't those people's homes would have been destroyed and possibly their lives as well. Paul didn't want to do nothing about the British tyranny. He decided to help the people and fight back. Paul Revere's sacrifice to his country and what
