In today’s world, advertisements can be seen almost everywhere from enormous billboards along highways to a diminutive ads on a phone. But not all advertisements are successful.

A good example of how rhetorical devices are used to persuade an audience is the Edward Jones “Nine Days” commercial.

You are at home in bed, tired, hair tied up, wearing your old socks, and a big t-shirt, trying to watch “Marley and Me”; it is at the part where the two main characters are adopting the dog from the pound and then a commercial comes on.

The sad music plays and pictures of cute, injured puppies appear on the screen, a voice then begins to tell you about how these animals deserve to be treated like people, and donating to their foundation will help save them.

“I said in my heart that, rather than have war, I would give up my country. I would give up my father’s grave. I would give up everything rather than have the blood of the white men upon the hands of my people” (Chief Joseph, 1879 Speech to Congress, Line 78-80, P55). In this case, Chief Joseph had several big decisions to make at the time. After his father’s passing his biggest words to him was that he better not backs down and let the white man take the land with our ancestors. At this time, he also had to think about the bloodshed of his people, along with if he wanted to give into the fighting for the land. The fact that he wanted to keep his people’s hands blood free is a huge deal. Many of the Indians had a reputation proceeding them that they killed white people. Chief Joseph didn’t want that, he wanted mutual respect, even if that meant giving up his land.
Reform has been at the epicenter of society for years. Humans are far from perfect, and we must work to improve upon our mistakes through change. One blunder that hangs over our heads is the legal driving age of sixteen, and it is imperative that this wrong be righted. As it stands right now, anyone at the age of sixteen can drive a car, granted that they have supervision. But this measly protection pales in comparison with the bigger picture. After all, it will only add to the total loss of life from the various errors performed by sixteen-year-old kids. It is unseemingly to keep something that has time and time proved itself to be appalling. It is for this reason that eighteen should be the age at which adolescents are given cars. The legal driving age should be raised to eighteen because it will keep the streets safer, drivers will be more mature, and it is foolish to oppose this indubitable truth.
