In Reagan’s eulogy Thatcher uses pathos to unite herself with the audience, through the mutual feelings of grief and sorrow over losing a friend. In the opening lines of the eulogy Thatcher creates pathos by using diction. In lines one and two Thatcher said that a “Great President… Great American… Great man….” has died. Her choice of using the word great instead of good or any other adjective, effects the audience by showing what kind of man Reagan was. Since death is a universally known topic, it is safe to say that everybody has experienced the pain of losing a great person to death.

Martin Luther King Jr. was an African American and during that time, African Americans were treated unfairly by white people. Robert F Kennedy wrote a speech announcing Martin Luther King Jr’s death. Many people were shocked when they heard the news of his death.

As the leader of the civil rights movement and one of the most influential men of his time, Martin Luther King Jr. lived a dangerous life.

Conspiracies began taking shape as soon as the trials started, most were presented with a lack of definite proof.
The Kite Runner Alan W. Watts once said, “We seldom realize, for example that our most private thoughts and emotions are not actually our own. For we think in terms of languages and images which we did not invent, but which were given to us by our society.” (Quotes). Nowadays, there are still some cultures that suppress people’s life as well as their rights to stand up and voice their opinion. Not only the culture, but also the society they live in suspends the rights that could possibly changes one’s entire life. As people live under pressure, it sometimes put them in a situation that was not originally what they wanted to do.
An example of this occurrence is the ‘Mandela Effect’, which speaks of the collective misremembering of common events or details. The concept of the Mandela Effect rose to popularity on the internet in 2010, when many claimed to falsely remember that Nelson Mandela had passed away in prison during the 1980s. This is proven to be false, as Mandela was freed in 1990 and lived on until he passed away in 2013 – despite those who insist that they remember differently. It is said that the Mandela Effect is a direct result of people creating false memories. This distortion of memories is very common in everyday life and mostly occurs unnoticed by the person undergoing the process that goes by the name of
Throughout the trial we learn more about what actually happened, the catalyst for Peter’s actions and the perhaps not so innocent victims. Peter is eventually convicted and is sentenced to life in prison. A month after the final sentencing, Peter commits suicide by stuffing a sock down his throat. One year after the shooting we are taken back to Sterling High where a memorial had been erected and a plaque calls the building a “safe harbor” the validity of which could be called into question, because for many of the students, despite social standing, didn’t feel that Sterling really was a “safe harbor.” Many schools and situations are not “safe harbors” for students. In fact, the idea that it is possible to create an environment that will be completely rid of any dangers is ludicrous, but expecting a child to be able to manage that rocky situation on their own is even more absurd.
Death affects people in many different ways, it can affect the way you think and the way you act. In the movie Shawshank Redemption, Andy Dufresne, who has been sentenced to two life sentences in Shawshank prison for a crime he did not commit. Andy Dufresne deals with the death of his freedom by helping the prison staff, by helping inmates get their high school equivalency, and by digging and escaping from Shawshank prison. Being able to do something you enjoy can give you a sense of freedom even when you are not free. Andy Dufresne deals with the death of his freedom by helping the prison staff and the warden do tax related things, an example is when Andy and his group of friends were tarring a roof and Andy convinced Hadley to give them beer in exchange for tax work.
He protested for the independence of south Africa. Nelson guided the people of Africa and was put in jail, but the protest didn't stop.

Mandela after so many protest they finally won the freedom of Africa and its people.
In the aftermath of Tom’s attempted escape from prison, which eventually led to his death, “Maycomb was interested by the news of Tom’s death for perhaps two days,” (240) as it was “typical of a nigger’s mentality to have no plan, no thought for the future, just run the blind first chance he saw” (240). The author’s application of this description distinctly portrayed how Maycomb’s warped perspective of Tom’s death was achieved through the racism that inspired many to believe all African Americans were stereotypical criminals and in Tom’s case it was no different. Critically, Maycomb’s prejudice shines through in this description of its lack of sympathy towards an innocent African American’s death and highlights ignorance as an alarming after effect of racism. Before the court had begun to issue its final verdict, ““Atticus had used every tool available in court to free men to save Tom Robinson, but in the secret courts of men’s hearts Atticus had no case” (241) as “in our courts, when it’s a white man’s words against a black man’s, the white man always wins,” (220). The author’s description of the court’s ruling was definite and expected because as Atticus explained, society is biased, therefore the court of all white men were always partisan towards voting in favor of a white man without allowing any arguments against him to sway them.
Adnan Syed was young adult in 1999 when he was arrested and accused of the murder of his ex girlfriend named Hae Lee. Adnan has been in jail since he was 17 now his sits in a maximum security prison waiting for his second trial to see what his final outcome will be. I believe after hearing the Serial podcast with all the facts and interviews with all the people who are involved and also close friends to both the victim and the alleged murderer that Adnan is not guilty. What I mean by Adnan not being guilty there isn 't enough evidence to prove he 's guilty but I feel his not completely faithful to his story the whole time. Adnan claims he was in the school when hae went missing that he was in the library and track practice there was no
In this article, it mainly focuses in on the case of Sandra Bland. Her death occurred in a Texas county jail cell, which reacted from a suicide. Her family didn 't know what really went on, but they assumed that the Law Enforcement did not seem to care about what happened to Sandra. Sandra was not the only one who was in police custody because Kindra Chapman was as well. After reading this article, I feel like there are some jails that give the opportunity of inmates to find a way on killing themselves.
After the long and mysterious fifty two years people still do not know what happened to John F. Kennedy. There are so many theories about the truth and what happened on that day yet no one knows the truth. People think that JFK died to every possible outcome there is to Lee Harvey Oswald did it to his own wife killing him. There are so many ideas but how can you narrow it down to a few people when only a third of the population is still alive when the assassination happened. While JFK was doing everything he could do to keep America safe and protected from many things, he still paid the ultimate price for his cause.
The novel “And Then There Were None” explores the different perceptions of justice when 10 people are invited to an island and are all mysteriously killed. The types of justice shown in this book are justice for the law and for others, justice for traditions and justice for love. Justice for the law and others is looked into by one character in particular, Mr. Justice Wargrave. Being a retired judge, he had dealt with right and wrong his whole life. In fact, he had felt from a young age “…A strong sense of justice.” (pg.302), which contradicted his desire to kill which he mentions in the epilogue of the book.
In Tim O’Brien’s story “Notes,” he discusses his fellow soldier “Norman Bowker […] [who hung] himself in the locker room of the YMCA” (149). Bowker symbolizes the pain that many veterans experienced, and how they sadly found their only escape through suicide. Yet, veterans potentially could have survived and even thrived if they had access to resources such as therapy, psychiatrists, and psychologists. When organizations supporting the idea that veterans should have opportunity to obtain these assets proposed this concept to The House Committee members, “members repeatedly balked at the notion that Vietnam Veterans required special counseling programs to help readjust” (Scott 38). Additionally, Patrick Hagopian reflects on how the government opposed the idea of providing these necessary resources so much that “the Nixon administration identified the politically engaged psychiatrists as enemies” (55).
