    Logos Pathos Ethos
    Abstract
    There are three techniques that can be used when in an argument. It is best to use all three if you want to prove your point. The first type is logos. Logos uses reason and logic. Specific facts are used to come to a conclusion. You must use reliable evidence. It is important not to rush to a conclusion without having relevant facts. The next type is ethos. An ethos will use ethics, credibility and reliability. The opposing position is represented accurately out of respect for the reader. The argument is proofread to avoid careless mistakes. The topic is often personal to the writer. Pathos is the final type. Pathos is the emotional appeal to the audience.

    Blake White p.7
    Advocacy Project
    “Web Tour”
    I started out by going to www.ushmm.org. On the home page to the left under the Holocaust History section there is a link called Introduction to the Holocaust. It gives a summary of the Holocaust. It is just enough information to understand what the Holocaust was. The word holocaust means ‘sacrifice by fire”. The Nazis targeted any groups of people they saw ‘inferior’. At the bottom of the article is a list of books that provide further information on the Holocaust.
    Back on the home page is a video link about the museum. I recommend viewing this video. The video shows footage of both the survivors and some clips that were filmed during the holocaust. The video tells how important survivors are. Some people deny that the Holocaust ever happened. Elie Wiesel is one of the survivors in the video. He talks about the dangers of hate.
    The museum has a YouTube account. This is great for visual learners. They have speeches given by both Elie Wiesel and President Obama. There are also videos on genocide. The videos are full of information.
    They also have a monthly newsletter you can sign up for. The newsletter will inform you on events in your area. Suggestions on how to combat hate and eyewitness stories can also be found in the newsletter. Any new Holocaust-related findings will be in the newsletter.
    On the homepage there is a link to an article about International Holocaust Remembrance Day. I didn’t know this day existed until I read the artice. In 2005 the United Nations General Assembly established this day. January 27 is designated as Holocaust Remembrance Day. This day marks the anniversary of the liberation of the biggest Nazi camp- Auschwitz.
    Overall I think www.ushmm.org is a great website. It is a great source of information. Most importantly is makes sure the Holocaust will never be forgotten.

    My name is Blake White. I am from Sandy Utah. Sandy has been my home all of my life. It is a great place to live and grow up.
    When I Was in the 9th grade I found out that I have Crohn’s Disease. Crohn’s makes so parts of the small intestine becomes inflamed. I was missing a lot of school because of being sick and frequent doctor’s visits. It got so bad that my doctor recommended that I have surgery to remove the part of my small intestine affected by the Crohn’s Disease.
    I was in the hospital for a week following the surgery. It was during that week that I realized the importance of both family and church. At least one of my parents was always by my side assisting me in any way they could. A number of families from my ward also came to cheer me up, including the Bishop, my home teachers, and my young men’s president. Seeing them come made me realize the significance and closeness of a ward. I now understand why people refer to the people in their ward as their ward family.
    Even with my many visitors is still got bored. Not many months after my recovery, it was time for me to select and eagle project for scouts. I decided to collect DVDs and video games to give to Primary Children’s Medical Center (the hospital where I had my surgery). Thanks to members of my ward and other members of the community I was able to collect several hundred movies and games to keep the kids in the hospital entertained.
    Becoming an eagle scout was one of the most fulfilling things I had ever done. I have enjoyed scouting for many years. My favorite part of scouting is the campouts. During scout camps I have gained heaps of wisdom. Some things I have learned by doing things physically, like building fires or tying knots. The most important lessons I have learned were not by doing but by listening to and observing my scout leaders.
    One campout stands out to me more than the rest. We were sitting around the campfire and the subject of missions came up. Usually scout camps are not the most spiritual place but that night was different. Hearing all of the great and some not so great experiences made me know that I need to go on a mission and prepare myself before I go.
    I owe a lot to the scout masters and young men leaders I have had over the years. I wouldn’t have gotten my eagle without them. I would not be the person I am today if it wasn’t for scouting, my leaders, my ward, and most importantly my family.
    I have learned one person can use their experiences to make a different and a group of people can improve the world.
