Mild traumatic brain injury, more commonly know as a concussion is one of the most common head injuries in football and arguably one of the worst, brain damage has lasting effects, and because of this research has been done to find the most effective and safest helmet styles. The study on helmet types and safety was published in the journal for neurosurgery and later had another article written about it in the New York Times online edition.
Shriver chose to appeal to the emotions of his readers in many parts of his writing. I thought the facts about people with intellectual disabilities were very sad and eye-opening, but I did not think they helped his point.
Shriver is trying to prove that fighting the word will help because the word represents prejudices and the hardships that intellectually challenged people have had to face throughout the years. Listing the statistics about unemployment does nothing but prove that there is a prejudice.
He is writing the article in response to Fairman, who makes it clear in his article that there are prejudices. The short stories in the article had sort of the same effect. The short stories definitely got an emotional reaction out of me, but I found them irrelevant.
It made the article a little more personal, but not in a way that supported his point. We know there is a problem with intellectually challenged people and prejudice. I think his article would have been a lot stronger if he focused more on the symbolism behind the hurtful words than items such as the unemployment rates and poor living conditions of people with disabilities.
Although Shriner missed the point on the emotional pieces of his writing, I believe he had many more successful pieces.
Fairman made it seem like the campaign was focused solely on banning the words themselves. Shriner made it clear that there was another meaning to the words and to the campaigning. He agrees with Fairman that the meaning of words can change.
I think that agreement also strengthens his argument. He has a very successful conclusion as well. At the end of the article, Shriner proposes what changes this campaign could cause. He points out that ending the word may also end what it stands for. He believes it could open people up and make the world a better place.
Overall, I agree with Shriner. Although the statistics and stories seemed irrelevant to me, his conclusion and statement of the goals of the campaign made his article a very moving piece of writing.Journal Logo Secondary Logo Account.
