First she tries to persuade her more reserved sister Ismene to help her. Once Antigone starts to realize her argument isn 't working she asks, “A true sister or a traitor to family?” (Sophocles et al. 190). Antigone uses a pathos or an emotional appeal here to try and convince Ismine. The appeal will help convince Ismene because no one wants to be called a traitor because it has a negative connotation.
Together they try to convince the system that Sam deserves to get his daughter back and, in the process, they create a bond that results in a unique testimony to the power of unconditional love. Some ethical dilemmas are seen in the Rita Harrison character. When her character is first introduced, she made ethical decision to choose her career over her family, and to view people as insignificant creatures. Rita criticizes and neglects those around her. Her emotional state of being, and her choice of work creates serious ethical dilemmas.
The grandmother doesn’t seem to develop in the story until she faces life or death at the end, she may have never developed if have it not been for the Misfit. The grandmother in “A Good Man is Hard to Find” has a moral code that she follows but by the end of the story the Misfit makes question her moral code. A moral code isn’t something that necessarily means good; a moral code is a set of beliefs and behaviors that people abide by to live what they consider to be a reasonable. The grandmothers moral code is based on appearance over substance, Christianity, and ladylikeness, for example, when the family was getting in the car to leave the grandmother was dressed very nicely so just in case there was an accident “anyone seeing her dead…would know at once that she was lady.” The grandmother also, although she barely knew him, thought that Red Sammy was a good person because he let what he thought were good country people charge the gas. When the Misfit shows up at the
Psyche on the other hand, tries to consolidate her desire and duties to try to please both. In the story, “Psyche’s Art”, it states, “But being very much in earnest about doing her duty, not because it was her duty, but as a means toward an end, Psyche fell to work with a will, hoping to serve both masters at once...Psyche found duties and desires desperately antagonistic.” (Alcott 2177). She wanted to do both, but it wasn’t working. To be devoted to the household work didn’t allow her to have time for her art work and vice versa. Her desire and the duties she was expected to do, were
Didion states that having a lack of self-esteem is why human beings today are not successful. So, she acknowledges the other side to this argument with the phrase stated above and also draws the reader’s attention to the fact that self-esteem is an issue in society; self-esteem is not commonly blamed as one of the reasons people fail. Another example of how Didion uses metadiscourse to draw the reader in is when she states, “Although now, some years later…”. This is another example of argumentative metadiscourse because Didion is yet again acknowledging past mistakes made when self-respect was absent. This brings the reader’s attention to the fact that Didion was wrong in her childhood when she thought everything was easy and guaranteed, but the fact of the matter is nothing in life is certain… once we realize this we will gain a partial amount of the self-esteem needed to thrive in today’s
Instead men, but most women, are expected to work from teenage years until well into adulthood. The consequences of this have devastating effects. The documentary, The Hidden Face of Globalization describes how exhausted and ill female employees are because of their work schedule and how “families are collapsing” and children are left at home to fend for themselves. Some workers never reach adulthood due to the high amounts of factory fires in the country. During the especially infamous collapse of the Rana Plaza in 2013, 1,100 workers died including children brought to work by their parents (Bartley 147).
Twelve thousand children, thirty thousand women, and over three hundred thousand men, all were civilians who had nothing to do with the war. Families were separated, women were widowed, children became orphans, and men saw their own children dead in front of them, and their only fault was refusing to flee away in order to live in their own country. Seeking asylum was one of the most challenging things Syrians have faced. One of the most well known stories that quickly became trending all over the news and social media, was the story of Alan the kid who drowned with his mother and brother while travelling illegally from Syria to Turkey whose body was found on the beach the next day. Many similar incidents happened to the Syrians who were looking for a safe place.
(2017), Ethical dilemmas, also known as a moral dilemmas, are situations in which there is a choice to be made between two options, neither of which resolves the situation in an ethical acceptable fashion. The strategy would best serve the family and provide resolution would be to find a way to get legalized in the United States or to return home to Mexico. The mother did experience discrimination while working on a job, but there was little to be done because she was illegal. According to Molina (2017), the Department of Homeland Security issued a sweeping set of order that
He called his father to tell him that “the staircases collapsed… we are stuck here”(Dwyer and Flynn 111). Unfortunately, hundreds of people shared the same experience as Milanowycz and had nowhere to go as a result of blocked staircases. In addition to the design and staircases, the lack of fireproofing in the Twin Towers further supports the claim that the inadequate construction of the tower was the greatest contributing factor to loss of life. The fireproofing was not sufficient to begin with and had never even been tested. After the 1993 bombing, the Port Authority began to replace it but had
There’s also this bugging question: Do they feel sorry for me? If anyone’s pity comes with an enclosed check, I probably need all the pity in the world. Kidding aside, we’re telling how things are because it’s the truth, not because we advocate our lives as sob stories. Do, in some way, single parents disrespect the sacredness of family as the basic unit of society? My life didn’t turn out as I would have wanted it to, but I know that I am where I need to be.
