Her father being brought to the hospital where she was employed, Laskowski-Jones was given the opportunity to see her father in the operating room just before being put under anesthesia. He was awake; Laskowski-Jones was able to express how much she loved him and not to worry. These would be that last words they spoke.

Calling it Quits Divorce plays a big role in modern day America, and unfortunately divorce rates have continued to increase over the past decade. Divorce is often perceived as a negative topic for obvious reasons such as causing damage to the family, traumatizing the children in the family and other psychological effects it has on people involved. However, both of the two articles I researched discuss divorce and its negative psychological effects; one of the articles differs in that it focuses on the ecological aspects of divorce instead.

The long term effect was that it gave scientists and physicians cause to research and learn more about what caused this pandemic and rectify it or at least ensure that this won’t happen to the extent that it did. It also opened up the doors for research into other fields of medicine. Another problem that I reflected on was the way African Americans were still being treated in the 1900’s.

President Obama begins the speech with an emotional tone in order reminisce on the damage the 9/11 terrorist attack had on the entire United States. Obama uses imagery to bring about this emotion when he mentions, “The empty seat at the dinner table. Children who were forced to grow up without their mother or their father.
