    Saving The Homeless As A Nation: Kevin Fagan, the author of “Homeless, Mike Dick Was 51, Looked 66” is a staff writer for the San Francisco chronicle who has covered homelessness nationally through 2003 to 2006. In this essay, Fagan is observing the life of a man named Mike Dick, who is a homeless man in San Francisco. Fagan uses pathos in the essay as well as ethos, and comparisons to provide examples in forming an effective argument for creating a change involving the homeless around the nation. Throughout the essay, Fagan is one on one with Mike in his rough environment providing a first-hand experience for the target audience, who is the nation and country as a whole. When Fagan writes this essay, the target audience is clearly the nation or country. Fagan states this explicitly toward the end of the essay “The nation needs to commit as a whole” (Fagan, 336). Fagan shows his stance on the issue of homelessness around the world, he wants everyone to make an effort and help. He reaches out to the whole nation because homelessness doesn’t just occur where Mike lived in San Francisco, it happens all over the country. Another example of how the nation is the target audience is where Fagan states “In a rich country where actors can make millions of dollars, pretending on a movie screen, to be poor like Mike and go home to one of their mansions at night, we can do better” (Fagan, 336). This comparison creates a perfect visual of the diversity in our world today, we have…

When I was told that the drama workshop was about homelessness, I was a bit disappointed because I was…

    sweat trickling down my back, making me squirm in discomfort. The restaurants and bars were pretty empty, and the street felt just a little desolate.
