He approached his speech with a very negative tone. Ronald Reagan focused on what was going to be done to rebuild our country's unity whereas Mario Cuomo only focused on what hadn't been done. Mario Cuomo believed that Reagan was only seeing the good parts of America but was failing to see the suffering that many people were facing. People who can't pay their mortgages, afford an education, and parents have to let their dreams go that they have for their children. In this negative tone throughout his speech, he uses the metaphor that “All the President sees from the veranda of the white house is a shining city”.
Many of Reagan’s firmness led the destruction and downfall of the evil empire. In 1991, Reagan aggressive policies toward the Soviet Union was a factor that ended the cold war. In the other hand his opposition said that only the good fortune of sane leadership in Moscow save us all from the nuclear apocalypse. Reagan diplomatic legacy was more that his admires or critics are likely to admit. Reagan did led his country to a victory in the cold war but his great accomplishment came in his second term in office when he abandoned his earlier stance toward the soviet and took a more flexible stance to better the relations with a reformist and leader of the soviet union Mikhail Gorbachev by acting as Gorbachev partner as much as his enemy.
Hitler was very proud of Germany and wanted Germany to become the powerful country it once was. Hitler was explaining to the people of Germany the actions he took and justifications of his actions towards abolition of the Treaty of Versailles. The speech showed that Hitler, the leader of Germany, had planned to abolish the Treaty of Versailles which weakened Germany immensely. To bring prosperity to Germany again, Hitler decided to reverse everything the treaty had done to Germany. The speech by Hitler showed his pride and there was hint of him rejoicing in his own achievement that he did not just pay lips service, but delivered what he promised the people.
The first sentence states,” Others prophesied the decline of the West. He inspired America and its allies with renewed faith in their mission of freedom .” In the first six sentences , she repeatedly uses “Others” (Reagan’s rivals) and “He” (President Reagan) as opposites facing each other during the climax of the Cold War. Next, Thatcher uses dialogue spoken between President Ronald Reagan and the leader of the Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev at the Geneva Summit. When talking about problems plaguing both the first world and second world powerhouses, Ronald Reagan told the leader of the country that he had been in constant conflict, “Let me tell you why we distrust you.” The level of professionalism and nerves required to deliver such a sentence to a world leader is something great, heroic men can only dream of. Finally, Thatcher uses the personification of the words Reagan told Gorbachev during a very taxing, toxic world-wide situation.
On June 26, 1963, John F. Kennedy stopped in the city of West Berlin in Germany which, at the time, was under American, French, and British control after the city of Berlin was split into four sections controlled by France, Great Britain, United States of America, and the Soviet Union following World War 2. Kennedy delivered this speech in order to reassure the citizens of West Berlin that they had the support of the Western powers such as America despite attempts from the Soviet Union to destroy West Berlin by blockading all roads and railways into West Berlin and constructing the infamous Berlin Wall to prevent those who were living under Soviet control from moving from East Berlin to West Berlin and achieving freedom. Kennedy used this speech to not only show support to the people of West Berlin, but also to show the Soviet Union that the USA and other powerful nations were backing up the citizens of West Berlin who were willing to
It was given to recognize the events of the 20th century as the world moved into the 21st century. Wiesel looked back on how people were treated with indifference and asked that the US government and people do better in the new millennium. This was a great speech because of the timing and message. The 20th century was full of wars, poverty, and hatred among peoples. Not only did these terrible things happen, but the victims of them were, in general, treated with indifference by governments and society.
Also, Reagan recalls to the audience a sign he had seen which celebrated the Marshall Plan. His mentioning of the sign stating “The Marshall Plan is helping here to strengthen the free world” causes the Berliners to reach back in their memory to the time when they started rebuilding. Reagan inspires a sense of pride and freedom inside the Berliners as they review what they have done – rebuilt their broken city into one which “ranks as one of the greatest on earth.” Then Reagan turns that pride and freedom into pity and a desire for justice by painting a new picture within their minds – this time of East Berlin’s oppression and poverty. Now, as Reagan continues his masterful speech, the Berliners view themselves as a voice against the wall – a voice for freedom. Like a tapestry artist Reagan cleverly weaves the soft lines of emotional appeal among
The loss of a nation's leader is a tremendous blow the people's stability, and induces a painful reflection on how the state suffered, shifted, grew, and healed under their authority. The United States faces such a blow after Ronald Reagan's Passing, and while he passed nonviolently his departure forced up uneasy memories of an weak era in united states History. Regan was beloved by the people for his hand in healing nationwide fear induced by the the looming threat of nuclear weaponry and a shaky economy. With Reagan no longer living much of the people were left with a sense that a security blanket has been ripped from under the nations soil. Margaret Thatcher, a past prime minister of Great Britain and dear friend of Regan’s delivered a heart throbbing eulogy to
Reagan mentions these facts in his “Tear Down this Wall Speech” to make everyone listening realize that Berlin has come a long ways in a short period of time. Ronald Reagan said, “From devastation, from utter ruin, you Berliners have, in freedom, rebuilt a city that once again ranks as one of the greatest on Earth.” He uses facts to get this point across to all of the listeners around the world, and by doing so, he has indirectly won the favor of
Wiesel is about this subject. I think he is much wiser about this subject in Perils of Indifference, because he learns what actually happened in the Holocaust. Mr. Wiesel later learned that the US was also indifferent. He told stories about how the US had so many chances of speaking out and acting to help the Jewish people, but instead they turned their opportunity down. People sent a ship with 1000 Jewish people to the US, but the US made them go back.
