If you have read the writing piece by Leonard Pitts, "Sometimes, the Earth Is Cruel" then you will understand why they think they are being treated cruelly and unfairly. The "bad guy" in this scenario would be, plainly, Earth and the victim would be Haiti. It mostly focuses on Haiti and what has happened throughout the recent years but it is actually talking about all the poor countries that can't catch a break. Countries like, but not limited to, Congo, Niger, Burundi, Mozambique, and so much more. Being treated cruelly is willfully causing pain or suffering to others and/or feeling no concern about it.
The great depression caused a bunch of grief on the families due to all the events killing of their family members, separating families, and leaving them hungry. At this point of the Great Depression, many americans and others around the world thought that they were going to lose everything and the economy was never going to get better. The great depression also known as “Black Tuesday” started October 29, 1929, while President Herbert Hoover was in office. While in presidency Hoover only came up with hoovervilles to get the homeless have a place to stay, soup kitchens were thought of for the homeless to eat, and people also gave their scrap clothes to the homeless to have a little extra warmth during the cold weather.

SHOW CONNECTION Jon Kurht’s article “When helping doesn't help” is a personal narrative discussing Kurht’s experience managing a homeless shelter, and discussing the hardships and complications that come with helping the homeless. Kuhrt notably states that shelters “actually bred further cynicism and depression in those young people because many were ashamed of what they were doing - they knew they were profiting from the naivety and kindness of others.” Logos can be found within the reasoning and conclusions found by Kurht.SHOW CREDIBILITY Amy Taxin and Geoff Mulvihill’s blatantly titled article “Don't help the homeless, critics say - it hurts them” works as a counter to my claim. The article describes how the good intentions and actions, such as camps and free resources (toilet paper, showers, etc.) only enable and prevent the homeless from a desire to move. Logos helps to develop the claim.

He persuades you to believe that the earth really is against the Haitian people. He uses words like “monster” to describe an earthquake and words like “smashed”, “tragedy”, and “devastation” to strongly depict how catastrophic this natural disaster was. These efficient language techniques make you resent the earth for causing so much pain, misery and turmoil and sympathize or empathize with the poor people of Haiti; which is exactly what it’s supposed to

Impact – uses satirical humor to talk about this issue Allusion: Alluding to way America is “alleviating” homelessness. – puts into perspective what is being done to those in poverty Alludes to 3 real news segments - All of the real news have the effect of showing just how real this opinion on homelessness is.

One is wiping his eyes with a handkerchief and others are helping the sick and burying the dead. The walk to the new land was very dangerous and many died.
