I thought about it for a while, than I did what seemed the most fair.
She tells the story of Tyler Clementi, an 18-year-old college student who was secretly filmed kissing another man. Overcome with shame, he committed suicide. While Clementi’s tragic story is a stunning narrative on its own, Lewinsky powerfully connects it with her own life. Her breath catches and she pauses. Emotional – choking up – she tells of how Clementi’s story resonated with her mother: She was “reliving a time when she made me shower with the bathroom door open, reliving a time when both my parents thought I would be humiliated to death – literally.” Jay Heinrichs’ book Thank You For Arguing analyzes the effectiveness of pathos-based arguments as emotional appeals.

This is a huge leap in logical, to say the least. In this story, we can find context clues that prove that this did not happen. See, the first clue we get is his gambling problems and his wife’s disdain for this habits: “In the two and a half years we were married, I often had the feeling that I would come home from the track and something would be funny. Oh, she'd say things: One of these days I'm not going to be here when you get home, things like that, things like everybody says. How stupid of me not to see them as omens” (Carlson, Rob).
This accomplishment was met with such an emotional finish, and Matt and I bonded over the unknown of what our futures held. Neither of us had jobs, but we both had big dreams. Our group of interns was tasked with driving the Sprinter vans back to Des Moines. The trip took a couple days, and I tried to be around Matt as much as I could without being totally obvious that I had a huge crush on him.
