Ethos, Logos, and Pathos
The Perils of Indifference
Elie Wiesel
"And now, I stand before you, Mr. President -- Commander-in-Chief of the army that freed me, and tens of thousands of others -- and I am filled with a profound and abiding gratitude to the American people."
"What about the children? Oh, we see them on television, we read about them in the papers, and we do so with a broken heart. Their fate is always the most tragic, inevitably. When adults wage war, children perish. We see their faces, their eyes. Do we hear their pleas? Do we feel their pain, their agony? Every minute one of them dies of disease, violence, famine.

Some of them -- so many of them -- could be saved."
"And yet, my friends, good things have also happened in this traumatic century: the defeat of Nazism, the collapse of communism, the rebirth of Israel on its ancestral soil, the demise of apartheid, Israel's peace treaty with Egypt, the peace accord in Ireland. And let us remember the meeting, filled with drama and emotion, between Rabin and Arafat that you, Mr. President, convened in this very place."

Wiesel is being logical by saying "hey, I know this century has been a downer, but it hasn't been all bad. Here are some examples of some good things that have happened." It would be illogical to neglect the positives just because some negative things happened.
"I ask you to pass this Act of Uniformity not for myself, but for my people, who are my only care.
She is making herself credible by showing that the well-being of her people is the only concern she has. It shows that she is of good moral standing
"I do not think you should lecture me on that, my lord, since you, yourself, have been twice divorced -- and are now upon your third wife.
By humiliating the clergyman, she humbles him and makes him realize that is not a perfect person either. At this moment, the rest of the room falls silent as well, showing that they are reflecting on their own lives.
"If there is no uniformity of religious belief here, then there can only be fragmentation, disputes, and quarrels.
Elizabeth appeals to the logic of the clergymen by stating that a nonuniform society will eventually cause problems.
