(Shows like “CSI” and “FBI” may give people an unrealistic expectation of these sorts of jobs.) But above all, it became very difficult and depressing for the anthropologists to work with so many depressed, anxious residents in Hardin. Everyone had lost a great deal and tensions were high during this painstaking process. The public offered family photos, medical records, and other personal affects to help identify individuals, which sometimes did make an impact, but other times, family memories proved to be ambiguous or inaccurate. The practice of embalming was not used until after the Civil War, so many bodies in caskets were already decomposed.
Rhetorical Analysis: “Jeremy” Rhetoric appeals are used for impacting society.

After the Black Saturday bushfires, many people died and many properties were destroyed, causing grief to the owners, friends and family of them. The money to repair the damage was a big problem because of the bushfire’s immediate wreckage, and the survivors ran out of money before they could even finish the houses, and with the add-on of fireproofing this raised the cost to rebuild. What were the environmental impacts from the Black Saturday Bushfires? The environmental impact from the Black Saturday bushfires was the biggest impact, as more than a million animal wildlife injuries and deaths would tally more than 1 million. There was 1 specific wildlife, the Lead beater’s Possum, which only had one habitat, and unfortunately was part of the Black Saturday bushfires, which puts that animal on the list of “threat of extinction.” http://youtu.be/EmG5kQBsOpg Black Saturday- Inside the firestorm ABC1 Video about what happened inside the firestorm.

In 1981 my family attempted to escape from Vietnam. It has been estimated that over half the persons who tried to escape Vietnam by boat died at sea, more than a million persons. But even though it was dangerous we were willing to risk our life because the communist hated my family so bad that we could not survive in Vietnam. There were nine persons in my immediate family when we tried to escape by boat from Thuan An Beach in Hue. My Father, my mother, me, and four brothers, and two sisters tried to escape from Vietnam.
Blenkinsop saw it before his eyes, so he speaks the truth. 69,000 thousand people at least were dead, and five million homeless. This is a devastating topic to discuss and to photograph, but, it has to be done so people know what is going on in the world. Blenkinsop captured great photographs, showing us the faces of the victims, the devastation they have seen, the destruction of China, with rubble into the background of many of his pictures, and also captured the help China was giving each other, with medics and authorities everywhere to help. He focused on the topic of the earthquake in Hanwang, China, and the devastation it brought.
It all started on Saturday April 15th 1989, a date forever etched into the annals of British sport as a tragic day when almost 100 people, who had travelled to Sheffield to watch the football team they supported compete in a cup semi-final, were crushed to death. The speech is, however, not about the tragedy in itself, but about the post-tragedy response of a reportedly false apportioning of blame for what had happened, together with the decision to not disclose documents which could help provide a comprehensive and objective understanding of what happened leading up to, during, and after the tragedy. In the words of the families who lost their loved ones on that day, the debate which this speech opened is about ‘justice for the 96’ (Hillsborough Justice Campaign, n.d.). More than 22 years later, on October 17th 2011, as a direct response to an overwhelming 144,000 signatories to an e-petition on the UK government website, and the support of almost 100 MPs across parties, Steve Rotheram, MP for Liverpool Walton, stood in the House of Commons to deliver a
“Isn’t it so weird how the number of dead people is increasing even though the earth stays the same size, so that one day there isn’t going to be room to bury anyone else?” (3) 2,996 people were killed during the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. In the novel “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close,” Oskar Schell’s father was one of them. At 9 years old he was forced to deal with the death of his favorite person in the entire world with no explanation of why and he was left to make sense of it. This quote describes how in depth Oskar thought about death after the loss of his father and how it affected him. It makes the reader think about how many people were actually killed on 9/11 but how the rest of the world stayed the same exact size.
A picture is worth a thousand words. But for many people a picture taken by Richard Drew called "The Falling Man" left many people speechless. Two years after the terrorist attacks on world trade centers author Tom Junod was inspired to write his famous article for Esquire Magazine entitled The Falling Man. In his article Junod discusses the victims of the terrorist attacks who were forced out of the towers due to the overwhelming heat from the fire or in desperation for relief from the smoke. These people who ended up in this unimaginable position and ended jumping from the towers.
