Since his main goal was to inspire, not educate, the use of logical appeals was not prominent in the course of his speech. However, he did use a variety of effective emotional appeals to allow his audience to feel included in his future goals as the president. Kennedy brings up the task of peace and prosperity to the word as not his own personal objective, but also for the American people. With his famous line, “Ask not what your country can do for you..ask what you can dp for your country,” (Shea54) his audience felt involved and responsible for making the place they live in better than what it is. Apart from instilling personal
“What Veteran’s Day mean to Me” “Try not to become a person of success, but rather try to become a person of value”. ~Albert Einstein.Veterans are not just men and women who went to war. Veterans are the cause, we live in a safe country they are the cause, we walk on the sidewalk laughing and enjoying what life brings us. But the question in my mind is we laugh, play, and learn, what about Veterans they don’t laugh, they cry they don’t play they fight they don’t learn they die. We are not grateful we don’t respect the lives we live in every day.
Mr. Pacetta would take the never quit attitude from his mother and the business and people savvy of his father and combine them to make one outstanding mentor and leader. Mr. Pacetta did not try and reinvent the wheel when it came to the leadership principles that he adopted to become a successful leader. Here are just a few of Mr. Pacettas leadership traits, what they mean and how they are applicable in a military environment. He is a lead from the front person; he will not simply give orders and expect his minions to comply with them. He will go out and show them how to act and perform.
In this book, when the narrator recognizes how he has reached self-awareness, he is finally able to understand his own identity and the environment around him. The first type of awareness is when the narrator refuses to believe that white men are anything but superior human beings. He has not yet experienced their exploitations or their cruelty. He tends to worship and adore groups or individuals of high rankings. For example, in the battle royal, he did not care to think of how humiliating it was, and instead he thought of it as a title of honor to participate in such event.
They prayed and Sheriff Jim Clark’s deputies and Major John Cloud’s troopers unblocked the bridge. But Martin Luther King still returned to Brown Chapel and did not press on. This infuriated SNCC, whom after seeing the deputies and troopers move wanted to continue with the demonstration. Martin Luther King had made a deal with Federal Mediators and he did not wish to violate it. But The Student Nonviolence Coordinating Committee saw no reason not to continue on because the men had cleared the way and therefore they believed they should be able to move through without problems.
This is shown when he admits early in the story that he does not judge Gatsby because Gatsby had an "extraordinary gift for hope, a romantic readiness". This made Nick more loyal to Gatsby than other characters in the book. Nick overlooks the wrongness of Gatsby's bootlegging, his known associations with speakeasies, and with the character Meyer Wolfsheim, a man rumored to have fixed the World Series in 1919. Yet he is disapproving of Jordan Baker for cheating in a golf game. He also says that he is prepared to forgive this sort of behavior in a woman, "It made no difference to me.
Where as Peter Gabriel wrote “Biko,” to spread the word about how great a man Steven Biko was, and what he stood for. As a British singer/song writer he wasn’t trying to alert “his people” (Dylan was directly speaking to Americans), he was alerting the whole world. He was a bystander, simply recording his reactions in a song. Bob Dylan also makes direct references to his reaction towards Emmett’s death (“I saw the morning papers but I could not bear to see”) Gabriel uses the first two lines to inform the reader that Biko dies in the late seventies in South Africa, and victim of a tragedy. The lines “It was business as usual in police room 619” are meant to symbolize the fact that it was normal for black Africans to die while in police custody.
How does Stephen Fry use language to create impact on his audience? (Referring to speeches ‘Loveliness’ from ‘A bit of Fry and Laurie’, and Fry’s address to the Cambridge Union against the motion that ‘this House believes that Classical music is irrelevant to today’s youth’) Throughout his speeches, Stephen Fry uses a repertoire of rhetorical devices to create impact on his audiences in different ways. The first of the two speeches is his address to the Cambridge Union, against the motion that ‘This House believes that Classical music is irrelevant to today’s youth’, and the second is his ‘loveliness’ speech, from the comedy sketch show ‘A bit of Fry and Laurie’. From his opening line to the Cambridge Union, Fry successfully manages to establish a rapport with his audience. He begins with the very conventional opening, ‘Ladies and Gentlemen’, but then continues the list of his audience, right down to ‘darlings’ and ‘assorted media scum’.
The resolution comes when he admits everything about himself in the confession booth and begins being honest with everyone around him. In the book “A Million Miles In A Thousand Years” Donald Miller does not know why the movie directors find his story to be noteworthy enough to be made into a movie. In my opinion, his story is extremely noteworthy because it is relatable. Although the producers took liberties such as his mother becoming pregnant by his priest and other pieces of the film to make it more entertaining to watch, there were no climactic fight scenes, or explosions, or tragedies like in most successful movies. Instead, it stayed rather true to Donald Miller’s real life yet still is able to keep the audience intrigued due to its relevancy in many daily lives.
He creates an invitingly hopeful and powerfully encouraging tone that unifies his people with a fresh perspective of the nation. Kennedy says, “Will you join in that historic effort?” His tone of voice implicates a warm and welcoming feel that ask his citizens to help out rather than forcing them to do so therefore, the audience doesn’t sense an obligation by Kennedy . Later in his speech, Kennedy utilizes an antimetabole when he says “ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.” Instead of “inviting” he implies authority to the people to “ask” themselves what they can do for their beloved country. The audience sees that although Kennedy is nice to invite them to make a change, he also has the power to force it upon them. Kennedy includes his people to join in with him and make a difference for the nation.
