This main text is a political document. This speech was delivered by Barack Hussein Obama on January 20th, 2009 at The White House, Washington. Obama is the 44th President of the United States of America and the first Afro-American President in American history. After George W.
He starts his sentences with the same lines. This is a great way to make his statements. Obama sets a logical argument when addressing the audience. He says this at the beginning of his speech. “Each of us has deeply held beliefs.
The stress on the use of prosodic features in Obama’s speech also helps the audience to have a sense of involvement and associate with Obama. It also successfully draws the attention of the audience while stressing on important points. Barack Obama also uses intonation and pitch to stress on how appreciative he was of his friends and family for extending their support during the election campaign. Obama in his speech thanks everyone for their involvement in his victory right from his kids, wife and to his competitor Mitt Romney. While expressing his love to his wife Michelle Obama, President Obama says, “I have never loved you more.” He expresses his love and gratitude with honesty in a lowered pitch, which again highlights and projects him as an admirable candidate for the election.
He wanted them to stand up for their country, to be involved in politics, and to want to go the extra mile just to help others and the country as a whole. As I read this speech, there were five main points that stood out. They, along with the rest of the speech, explained what Roosevelt thought the ideal American citizen should look like. First, he starts his speech off by saying that no one can be a good citizen unless they are a good father and husband at home, treat other men and women with respect, are faithful to their friends and fearless in situations where they might be needed to help, and genuinely have a good heart, mind, and body. He states, “ In a free republic the ideal citizen must be one willing and able to take arms for the defense of the flag, exactly as the ideal citizen must be the father of many healthy children” (McKay).
The inaugural address, made by the incoming president, serves as his first official speech, marking the start of his term in office. Obama is in a unique position in history, not only is he the first African American president, but he faces
On 19th June 2013 Barack Obama, who is the current president of America, held a speech in front of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. It brought thousands of people there and millions around the world in front of the televisions. Its purpose is to inform the world about the beginning of negotiations with Russia aimed at ending the two nations` Cold War military posture and a reduction of nuclear arms by up to one third. The American president starts the speech by simply saying "Hello Berlin!“ It is very friendly and warming, when a president of such a strong country does not behave cocky. This is a persuasive tactic, that 's why he uses "Hello Berlin!".
He says “Today i say to you--that the challenges we face- are real. They are serious-- and they are many.” Obama continually does this throughout his speech which at times, when noticed, can cause the listener to want to finish his sentence for him. He talks in a very calm yet powerful voice giving him the appearance that he is confident and enjoys being in the position he is in. The mood of his speech is very promising and positive voice giving the american people a good feeling that the they are in good
When we had our first black president in America history, something that people only decades ago would have laughed at the idea of, the world changed. When Obama was elected president, it was a huge turning point in history: "The victory was heralded as the arrival of a “post-racial” America, one in which the nation’s original sin of racial slavery and post-Reconstruction Jim Crow discrimination had finally been absolved by the election of a black man as commander in chief," (Joseph). I only lived when the world changed, because I practically grew up knowing Obama as our president. Obama was inspiring, not only for black Americans, but for all other races as well. Racism was something I never knew about until the third grade and I thought it was absolutely ridiculous that people could hate another person simply for their race.
Barack Obama had to take up a position that required him to be away from his family. Likewise, Michele had to adjust in supporting her husband in the new role as well as supporting their young children in transitioning into leading a public spotlight life. Sasha and Malia had to learn and adopt in their new environment and continue with their education in a new school. It is through resiliency that the family remained together and withstood all the external forces which came their
Unity is the cornerstone of a country. It is certainly essential to have unity in a country in order to maintain peacefulness and prohibit any terror, war as well as destruction. Hence, the 35th President of United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy was very concerned to amplify unity in the nation. President John F. Kennedy always has no doubt that it was extremely important for a nation or even the whole worldwide to achieve unity for success. He even promoted about it to the citizens in his most influential inaugural address on 1961.
