Jane Evershed is one of those people that has the ability to speak through her artwork. This is a wonderful skill to have, as a picture is worth a thousand words. She speaks most openly to women, those who may or may not have endured the discrimination, oppression, sexual assault, and abuse from loved ones or society itself. Society makes it harder for women to accept themselves as they are. They come in all shapes and sizes, ethnicities and backgrounds, religions and sexualities. Evershed realizes this, and uses her personal struggles and the ongoing struggles of women everywhere to get a message across: women are beautiful, powerful, and strong. This is why there have been many women to join together and promote feminism; to stand proud

It is after two paragraphs exploring notions of man’s cosmic connection that Sagan asserts his first claim in the essay, “plainly there is no way back… we are stuck with science” (1). The compassionate tone persists even in assertions, as seen through the use of first person. More compassionate is the gentle acknowledgement of the pseudoscience appeal. “Yes, the world would be a more interesting place if there were UFOs lurking in the deep waters off Bermuda… or if our dreams could, more often than can be explained by chance and our knowledge of the world, accurately foretell the future” (1). This series of sentences ends the introduction. There is no rebuttal, or defense as to why science is more worthwhile. Sagan plainly acknowledges the appeal to pseudosciences, thereby strengthening the rhetorical bond between author and audience. Furthermore, the lack of a rebuttal somewhat puzzles the reader, and places an emphasis on the following text. The fourth paragraph returns the reader back to a shared appreciation for the cosmos, “the cumulative worldwide buildup of knowledge over time converts science into something only a little short of a transnational, transgenerational metamind” (2). Later on in that section, Sagan discusses the roots of our excitement for scientific
All through the ages, the Christ figure archetype has appeared in literature and film. In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Harry gives himself to Voldemort purposefully sacrificing himself for the benefit of the Wizarding World.

Does your dad know?”, but it was all for not, he was stubborn and would immediately shut down when she began to question him. Nevertheless, she would keep trying, because of the situation between her and her son. Saying, “I would want someone to look after him like I tried to look after Alex” (Krakauer, 45).
