  • Analysis Of A More Perfect Union

    Have you ever come across someone who couldn’t want anything more than for people to stop judging each other by color, religion or origin? Well, if you have, I guarantee they’re not as dedicated as Barrack Obama is to creating a society that is equal in all aspects. In “A More Perfect Union”, Obama expresses that people should not be focused on physical or background differences, they should be focusing on the issues that we all face in society. The issues such as, schools, healthcare and jobs. How do you we focus on the issues we all face rather than the discrimination and the judging? This reading explains exactly how we accomplish this. I will admit, I’m not into politics, however, I did find A More Perfect Union to be a very moving speech by Barrack Obama. The whole reason this reading was brought about was all based on a video clip of Barack Obama’s pastor, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, making racial comments against America and Israel. The emotion displayed as Obama expresses the days of judging others by their skin color are in the past is a great example of the use of pathos. You can tell he truly believes what he is saying and it comes across very persuasive. He explains how times were, and how we came to be today. Focusing on the logic provides logos to the reading. Obama also tells a story of his origin and a quick summary of how he grew up. This could be considered as a use of ethos, it gives you a background on Obama which characterizes the type of person he is,…

  • Childhood And Imagination In The Adventures Of Alice In Wonderland By Lewis Carroll

    Age has always been an issue of mind over matter. Just as age is not limited by how one looks or feels, imagination does not either. It is often the case that age limits imagination, but that is not the true. No one can blame themselves for wanting that sense of creativity to live within for as long as possible, which is exactly how Alice felt throughout her journey. In The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll uses references to his own past, Alice’s change in size, and imagery to…

    true. The Mormon culture believes their faith and religion was founded by a man named Joseph Smith, who at the age of fourteen, realized he did not agree with any denomination of Christianity.

  • What Happened In Nauvoo?

    described him as a villain. There has been a good deal of interpretations of what happened in Nauvoo. The majority of the accounts seem to come from Mormons scholars, which creates the problem of bias, where Smith becomes portrayed as a hero of the persecuted Mormons. Much Mormon scholarship on the Nauvoo era comes to be seen essentially as sacred history. If not overtly mythic as Mormon historical writing once manifested under such Mormon scholars as B. H. Roberts, it too often reduces the…

    will decide whether the messenger is credible—“before people decide what they think of your message, they decide what they think of you” (Cuddy et al. 59).

    In today's society there are hundreds of christian denominations around the world and without Brigham Young the book of mormon would have just been classified as fantasy instead of non-fiction. In the United States alone there are over six million Mormons. Brigham has been called the modern day moses for bringing the teachings of Joseph Smith to the people after Smith's death in 1844.
