We will rebuild New Orleans,” this is another quotation of logos because Blanco uses logic, such as, past events to prove that we should reconstruct our damaged cities.

Washington’s presidency lasted from April 30, 1789, to March 4, 1797.

Krakauer wrote that to make the readers think about what the causes of the disaster might have been. Krakauer also used foreshadowing to describe the disaster when writing Jan Arnold’s assumption of Rob Hall, “Rob’s feeling was that it wouldn’t be him; he was just worried about having to save another team’s ass’” (64).
