(3). She’s reminding everyone that their lives are not like a fire that once extinguished, the smoke is the only direction they can follow. Instead, Keegan says, “But let us get one thing straight: the best years of our lives are not behind us” showing that their lives are like matches and with each stroke it lights the way onto a new path and new opportunities of self-exploration
It tries to enlighten the hardship of coming back to a life that is not foul or execrable including the likes of PTSD and unemployment. Both of these works of art simultaneously denounce the sins of war while supporting the troops overseas. War Song and Hero of War are two very controversial songs about war, while being two similar songs as well. Both of these songs use Ethos as both of artists have served in war ergo making them a credible source. While Rise Against’s HoW uses Ethos to describe the dreadful sights and glimpses of war, War Song uses Ethos to support the troops and to lambaste war.
The choices that I make will always follow me around and will never go away. We all make choices everyday and it can be on anything. I remember when I made the choice to not study for a test and as you can guess, the outcome was bad. Sometimes we don’t think before we act and that makes us chose careless and dreadful choices.
Ahmet’s ability to adapt to these changes is why his career was able to last as long as it did. He evolved and ultimately transformed as an a&r person as his career went forward. Ahmet outdid Jerry Wexler in this category, for Wexler was unable to adapt to times changing, and he constantly worried about the future, whereas Ahmet did not worry about the future. Ahmet knew what would or would not sale, so he had to be willing to change as generations changed.
Karl Marlantes, in his book What it is Like to go to War argues that, “concepts of loyalty change…and warriors have to cope with that” (134). Marlantes supports this thesis by presenting a strong emotional appeal to the audience and supporting his appeal with ethos and logos. He mentions that he, “was facing a hard choice between duty and heart…as a unit or even ideals and loyalty to a person” (139). Marlantes uses ethos and pathos to connect the reader with sympathy and have credibility for being a part of a unit.
The song begins quietly, but it slowly begins to grow louder and more powerful, much like Chillingworth’s desire for revenge. This desire compiles him to seek the truth which leads him to rip open Dimmesdale’s shirt to reveal a symbol of his crime. This revelation is expressed in the song by a short pause followed by a single loud note in the music. As the music grows, voices begin to harmonize with the music, creating a very eerie tone. These voices can also be seen as the devil’s influence over Chillingworth, as well as his elation over his newfound discovery.
Embracing The Life You Never Wanted “If you’re walking through Hell, keep walking.” Winston Churchill once quoted. Explaining how every beginning has an ending, and every ending has a new beginning. Tomorrow is a new beginning, and rather than rejecting the life you never wanted, we need to have the courage to walk through the pain and complications. In both Romeo and Juliet and the book Sons of Grace by Mark Hughes, the characters learn to embrace the life they never wanted.
“I’m Not Okay” was a popular song amongst fans of the emo genre and people who were not necessarily fans of emo music. The song was popular because almost everyone can relate to its lyrics. For example, many people have said the words “I 'm not okay, you wear me out” (My Chemical Romance) at some point in their lives. Gerard Way’s rough and whiny vocals help emphasize the meaning of the lyrics.
No matter what it is, or how rough it may get, it’s going to be okay. He encourages them to keep pushing through. The next line in the song that stands out to me is when he says “ I almost gave up, but a power that I can’t explain.” I feel
I desperately desire this career because singing is something I can do forever without stopping, and I could do it for free. I have no professional experience with acting, but it is something I am willing to commit myself to do. I will never give up on my dreams, no matter how long it takes for me to fulfill them, or even begin to fulfill it. I may get discouraged at times, but at the end of the day, it is my life and my choices. Modeling, singing and acting is something I really want to do and excel in.
“One and Only” follows, and brings the pace down to a more reflective atmosphere before it builds with electro beats at the end. The vocals command the song and really drive home the significance of the message. “Joy of the Lord” is rich in percussion and has a powerhouse chorus, making scripture relevant and accessible in its lyrics. Emotive and powerful, “Never Walk Alone” initially builds before completely stripping down to vocals and simple backing. A heart felt song, the conviction and desperation in the lyrics matches the depth of the music.
In war, people are trained to take horrific action against other human beings. It is unfortunate how many wars have been fought in the name of God. Personally, I feel we should put an end to violence and the extension of US power. Unfortunately, I am unconvinced this will ever be an attainable
The piece contained many evident influences from the traditional Anglo-Scottish border ballad “Lord Randal”, mostly in its style of melody and the call and answer verses (Attwood). This particular song worked to point out injustices and distortion in media. In a 1963 interview Dylan stated “In the last verse, when I say, ‘the pellets of poison are flooding the waters’, that means all the lies that people are told on their radios and their newspapers” (Terkle). This was a newer issue with the introduction of the tabloid “National Inquirer” in 1952 and FM radio catching fame in the 1960’s. Many larger literary and musical figures also helped fuel the songs fame.
Symbolism is the use of symbols to represent ideas or qualities. The use of symbolism gives readers the ability to find deeper meanings that are beyond whats actually described on paper. In Ralph Ellison’s short story, “Battle Royale”, he uses blindfolds, the speaking event, and the battle royal to symbolize exactly what African Americans went through for equality. The fight between the boys symbolizes the way African Americans have been treated in today's society.
