Sanders uses it to express the societal view that easy access to migration route makes one more important because movement is the key to life. Sanders develops a connection with the audience through the use of parallelism by demonstrating that he understands their interest in movement and the
She also makes a strong argument through the use of ethos, pathos, and logos.

In doing so, Faulkner hopes that the “youth” listening will be inspired to bring about the change of which he is speaking about, “Change for man’s peace and security”.

He addressed the House of Burgesses in virgin, which the famous line come from “Give me liberty or give me death.” He was asking for help to revolt against England. At the time, he sought for freedom of the state. Patrick Henry was trying to convince Virginia that the what they have done to achieve peace had not been working and will not work, or will never work. So, he stokes a stand and was ready to fight against it. This speech is important for our next future generations because it shows them that if they want something done that they have to fight for it, and it also shows them not to give up on what they believe in because they can make a change just like the historical figures I just talked about.

While the first-generation Puritans believed this, their offspring who knew nothing of the religious hardship back home would rather have personal indulgences, which puts strain on the Errand. Adding on to that, the idea of being a collective group changed into the Puritans becoming more focused on defining themselves away from the Church as seen with King Phillip’s War. The war represents a change with the second and third generation Puritans who needed new, secular, enemies to define them as told by Marone when he says “The Puritans groped back to the tried and true-they found terrible new enemies to define them” (Marone 33). The Puritans defining themselves through fighting the Natives in King Phillip’s war, totally undermines the Puritans’ original enemy of being eternally damned. Furthermore, the Puritan Dilemma of the conflict of old vs new impacted the Puritans’ view of nature, as seen with the Salem Witch Trials and how God was punishing them for straying from the Errand.

This quote shows how Amir was more worried about himself then potentially saving his best friend from being abused. Khaled Hosseini chose to write this in the text to show how the main character, Amir, must now deal with adversity throughout the novel. The quote can teach society to think through decisions and determine what is more important for the future. The same event could have happened in real life, and Hosseini’s goal is that the right decision is made by anyone that endures a situation like this. If Amir did end up helping Hassan, then he would have been thanked by everyone, but instead Amir is faced with the sight of that scene forever.
