Climax


Climax (cli’-max): Generally, the arrangement of words, phrases, or clauses in an order of increasing importance, often in parallel structure.

Once again, too soon after the previous ‘once again’, there was a gun and there were bullets. There was shooting and mass killing.

First I am shocked. Then I am saddened. Then I feel anger that turns into outrage.

What can I do? What can you do? What can we do? What can anybody do?
