Article Analysis using Ethos, Pathos and Logos
On September 8, 2012, President Barack Obama marked the eleventh anniversary of the September 11th attacks by delivering a speech that commemorated the innocent lives lost and honoring the troops who laid their lives on the line in order to serve and protect our country.

Within the address pathos was used quite often to convey the emotional outcry of the American citizens on that day. The speaker in this article is in fact President Barack Obama; he is addressing the citizens of America. However, he was also addressing other groups in particular, such as the U.S. troops (Armed Forces), and the families of the victims who lost their lives during the sudden trauma.

President Barack Obama also utilized both ethos and pathos by demonstrating respect of multiple viewpoints: he references the events that took place on September 11th. For example, President Obama stated: "On that clear September morning, as America watched the towers fall and the Pentagon burn and the wreckage smoldering in a Pennsylvania field, we were filled with questions." This is just one of the many plausible sources President Obama utilizes in order to strengthen the credibility of the address. It is also one of the many vivid examples that use imagery in order to engage the reader's emotions and imagination. In terms of diction President Obama uses words like "goodwill", "leadership" and "stronger", all of which have something in common, to show the audience that no matter what happens, America will never back down but will only continue to become stronger as a people.

In terms of logos, President Obama's address was clear and coherent. The purpose of the address was to inform the audience that the U.S. as a nation does remember and that a traumatic incident such as 9/11 should not weaken our nation but strengthen it. Remembering what Obama stated: "Eleven years later, that's the legacy of 9/11 - the ability to say with confidence that no adversary and no act of terrorism can change who we are. We are Americans, and we will protect and preserve this country we love. On this solemn anniversary, let's remember those we lost, let us reaffirm the values they stood for, and let us keep moving forward as one nation and one people."

Please can you look over this and give me real constructive critiscm, if something does not sound correct can you put in a suggestions and help me out a bit...thank you lots of love!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry , I am not a professional editor from this site, but this is what I found:

(you might want to also define ethos and pathos in a way that is cohesive,but otherwise a very good essay!) Hope this helped!
