These images show Laura’s tenderness for her husband and how she wants to protect him. Similarly, Scannel also chooses imagery of war for what is really only a minor childhood incident. He refers to the spears of the nettles, calling them a “regiment” and, when he has cut them down and they have grown back again, he refers to them as “tall recruits”. This war and battle imagery used in the poem helps the reader to understand deeper, about the metaphorical meaning of this poem; that it is not just about comforting his son from the pain of the nettles, but also about the future pain of which he knows he will experience in his life.

Why do we feel guilt when we survive a catastrophe that has destroyed others, especially if they are our friends? This guilt is not necessarily based on any wrongdoing on our part but it is very real and present just the same. Suffering and pain—not just the pain of the main characters in the book, but of people from the past who cannot rest in peace until their pain has been • • expiated. John Donne wrote ‘Every man’s death diminishes me’ and this concept, too, is explained. The far-reaching ripples of bereavement.
Firefighters, police officers, and other emergency workers immediately took action unaware of the problems that were to come. Many of them died due to there heroic actions. Survivors that continued to help people and clear out the remains of the Twin Towers have become ill and are dying because of it.

War is a scratch on the forehead of humanity. It is a permanent stain on the fabric of peace and innocence but ironically it also created heroes. Altrurism is displayed often by soldiers, doctors and citizens during such time but only few standouts. Henry Dunant, the founder of Red Cross movement would be prime example of Altruism during war. He gathered locals involved in the battle to treat the soldiers without any discrimination.
This pathos describes how Lincoln would care for his people and how he would put the task of helping the people suffering from the war first, serving as a strong pathos since it is not only emotionally affecting his people, but also encouraging and giving them hope. The war destroyed millions of families. Lincoln in the first place gave his attention on healing the people and their families, instead of describing how beautiful the future would be and giving unrealistic assumptions This pathos and ethos made people, no matter the North or the South, to feel that they are in unity. Both sides were suffering the same war and urged to end it, while they shared a same religion. God plays an important role to connect the people together, which enhances Lincoln’s credibility in his speech besides his position as a president and occasion of this speech.
Assisted Suicide For God I live and For God I die Life is a precious gift that is to be received from God with gratefulness. It should be cherished, well-kept, and improved in every way possible. But when the potential for meaningful, joyful, desirable life has been painstakingly drained and every effort made to prevent the inevitable, should we make it possible for the compassionate to show mercy to the dying that makes an appeal for intervention to end their suffering? This essay will explore the topic of assisted suicide. A look at the paper wrote by Wolf will be examined and contrasted.
A recruit lies half-bleeding on enemy’s territory not able to move a muscle. Then, suddenly, a soldier swoops in, grabs the wounded and withstanding the odds of being shot makes it safely to base. People call actions of this kind courageous, because he put his life at stake to save an other soldier’s life. War gives us many examples of heroes, brave men and women, risking their lives for our safety. Can one show courage without having the chance of losing something very important?
