Despite the fact that Nancy Mairs chose a well diction and sarcastic tone to evoke readers empathy toward her essay , she also evokes a sympathetic response to her audience by telling reader that she does not feel sorry for being a cripple. She uses satirical description of her feelings , by allowing reader to see that she also felt sympathy for herself. Although Mairs, evokes empathy when telling her story, her sympathetic response toward her illness shows that she felt disconnected with her illness and that she did not have nothing else than to take what her destiny brought her.

Johnson starts off by explaining the meaning of satire which is “successful when the writer can make an audience believe the idea presented is not only logical, but practical.” She explains how Huxley gives this sort of humor to the social problem which is caused by people. She gives a little background to the story, explaining how there was no problems in the world such as war, and if there was anything wrong, people would just take soma to have hallucinations about being in this happy world.

They show the victims as weak and vulnerable while trying to work towards their goal. They do a good job of putting into perspective the person's needs vs a lot of peoples simple wants. It's easy to see the difference in the victims while taking the oil vs when they do not take the oil. I believe the program did a very good job in not only educating the audience but also being able to show real life peoples struggles without the substance to put it into perspective so the viewer can see exactly what a day in their life would be like. It's easy to just read about something and learn about it, but the plus side of the television show is that you can see first-hand every reaction the person

“...I’m willing to consider the possibility of a curse and try to find a solution for it, ” (“Curses!...”), states Hunter. Humoring the audience with the idea of Nationwide Arena being cursed creates a lighthearted tone. If Muirfield can be cursed with rain, why couldn’t the Jackets be cursed with injuries? “It just makes sense,” (“Curses!...”), says Hunter.

His letter to his mother allows every audience member to think back on personal conflicts they may have had when it came to disappointing someone close to them. The detailed sadness and attempts to better/correct himself, puts the reader in a state of sympathy towards the author, allowing them to feel what he had gone through and effectively immersing them in the article. This use of Pathos benefits him as he effectively reaches his audience on a personal and emotional level, reminding them that though everyone is different, we are all still humans.
