Donnae Lipinski's insight:

Birdwell survived the attack on the Pentagon although he was severely injured. This strong man survived and lives to share his tale with others, and according to Birdwell, he was saved by God's grace. “An 80-ton 757 came through at 530 miles an hour with 3,000 pounds of jet fuel and I’m still here and the plane isn’t,” Birdwell said. “You don’t’ survive that because the Army made you tough. You survive it because the Lord’s got something else in mind for you.” Birdwell uses pathos to relate his survival story surrounded by faith. Religion is what many turned to as they were tried with evil. many survivors turn to their religion and God. Birdwell is just one example of that. "Birdwell said he made his peace with God, and gave up the fight for survival. 

But he didn’t die."(Baker). Birdwell had come so close to death and had been engulfed with flames and searing pain but he is still here to tell his survival story.

Donnae Lipinski's insight:

Captain Bruce Cole spoke to console all those who were under the veil of depression using words that contain pathos and analogies.Cole wanted to bring comfort by reassuring the families of lost ones. "Over 400 of them perished at the World Trade Center while trying to save those targeted in the terrorist attacks.Hundreds more persevered under the most difficult, dangerous and heart-wrenching of circumstances"(Cole). Cole used pathos in his whole speech to match the tone of the nation. Bruce Cole tried to use words that were filled with the honest truth about the heroes that saved others. " As I watched it, I wondered how in the world could anyone charge forward when death covered the landscape like a blanket? It takes a special person armed with perhaps a special love, a deep commitment to the fellow being beside them.."(Cole). His rhetorical questions make the listeners view themselves and think if they could be the same. Cole's goal was to honor those who are deceased, and he also proved that bravery and a driving passion are very important traits of a survivor.

George W. Bush: Address to the Nation on the Terrorist Attacks | 2001, The Greatest Time for Survivors | Scoop.it
The American Presidency Project contains the most comprehensive collection of resources pertaining to the study of the President of the United States. Compiled by John Woolley and Gerhard Peters
Donnae Lipinski's insight:

President Bush speaks these words of the heartbroken crowd, but the nation did not fall apart at the terrorists' will. The speech was written to comfort and console everyone in the nation after so many unreasonable deaths. Bush is giving comfort by reassuring more would have been lost if the nation had not responded so quickly to the cries. "And we responded with the best of America, with the daring of our rescue workers, with caring of strangers and neighbors who came to give blood help and help in any other way" (Bush). A nation is strong when a desperate plea is called and so many answer, proved by Bush, that is why parallelism was used so often in this speech. Strength in numbers raises up the survival chance. "America and our friends and allies join with all those who want peace and security in the world, and we stand together to win the war against terrorism"(Bush). Strength in numbers is very valuable to all nations, Bush helped provided relief by having the people turn to each other for help.
