I Am Alone - Analytical Paper

I Am Alone, by Cochise: a chief of the Apache Nation, is a plea. It is a cry for help because his people, the ones his family has watched over for many generations, are in danger. He writes his plea to the president of the United States asking him to set aside a small chunk of his land to protect his people. If one deeply analyses the paper one can see the use of Logos, Pathos and ethos to show how desperate the chief is for his people.

As a chief, it was not uncommon for chief Cochise to use logic; also known as Logos. He uses 2 main instances of logos. First, he states how his people for years had been kind and let the white [americans] inhabit their land. Both people lived in harmony for a while. After a while, Soldiers came and did his people wrong, even though he was generous the entire time. The chief focuses on the fact that he did no wrong to the settlers but they did wrong to him.

Cochise is the man appointed to protect the people of the tribe. Being suh he uses families and his home to inflict emotion. Also known as Pathos. The chief uses many statements such as, “the home of my people” and, “I am the last of my family… [the future of these people depends on me] whether they shall utterly vanish of a few remain is up to you”. Using Pathos the chief forms a strong statement throughout this plea.

This strong statement flows throughout the plea. Chief Cochise uses strong statements such as, “ I hear pledge my word, a word that has never been broken” to strengthen his claim. He uses the fact that it was their land first and how he is chief of his people, pledged o pect them. It is apparent that Ethos is one of his strongest assets throughout the paper.

    Christina Han TH01703 I. The three “alones” of Reformation theology is Faith alone, Scripture alone, and Grace alone. Salvation is a gift given to humans by God’s grace, and through faith alone we receive this gift of salvation. If we erroneously believe that our own actions, such as going to church and obeying the Ten Commandments, play a role in achieving salvation, then salvation would no longer be a gift from God but rather a sort of human accomplishment. In order to be given the gift of…
