JFK uses anaphora to grab the readers attention as he says, “...rode the first waves of the industrial revolution, the first waves...the first waves...” President Kennedy presents the use of anaphora to show the U.S.A's success and power.

In the address, Washington urges citizens among the states to further disregard their identities under the states they live in, but attempt to consider themselves all as ‘Americans’ and ‘Americans’ only. His goal was to have the American citizens wanting to thrive off of looking beyond all their blatant differences and to now yearn for the unity among them all.
