Current president Barack Obama gives a speech at Wakefield high school in Arlington, Virginia. The main theme is “everyone is equal and have the same opportunities”. Nothing comes easy in life and you have to work hard for it. The intention of the speech is to motivate the American students. Do your homework, take responsibility for your life and take your school seriously.
He wanted to convey with his examples that life is difficult and that they are not going to be handed things in life because their nice or they think they deserve it. I didn’t think the thesis sentence was very evident because after is intro he automatically went into an example that he later ties not his speech. The purpose of the speech was to not only congratulate the graduates, but to inform them that their journey is far from over. His main topics for the speech were the importance of
High school coaches should not be required to give equal playing time to all players who make the team. Kids in society have been handed things their entire life. There has been little to no sense of accomplishment after earning a spot or position on a team. Spots should be earned by being the best at what someone does, not for pitty and for moral victories to make them feel good. “In high school, kids should understand playing time is earned.
Back to School is a speech which was delivered by Barack Obama, current President of the United States, at Wakefield High School in Arlington, Virginia, on the first day of school in 2009. It was also broadcast to other schools across the country. He starts with making clear that he is sympathetic with how tough it is for many of the students to get up this early, particularly the older ones who’d probably much rather have “stayed in bed just a little longer this morning ”. This is done in an attempt to make it clear to the students that he has not lost all connection to his past.
In The Cog, Charles Fritch uses symbolism to show readers that life choices can cause regret in future years. The tough decisions that people make can cause the most fulfilling life or they can wake up one day miserable. James Maxwell was one who wished he had followed his dreams instead of living with a more practical life. He had a very successful life, but he wasn’t doing what he had always dreamt of. He was the president of the world, but by his standards, that wasn’t enough.
With some Americans refusing to stay open minded to the beliefs of the opposite political party, our country will get nowhere. As one of our country’s Founding Fathers, Washington would not approve of this, and demand the next president change this. If George Washington was still alive today, he would be able to give the next president advice to transform our country. Someone with the unbiased mindset toward the two main political parties would be a much needed perspective for the next president.
I used to think that going to high school would be scary, but with all my friends and everything that my teachers have taught me, all I feel now is excited. I want it to be the first day of 9th grade fast, I want to start High School. I know that my friends would be here when I need them as well as teachers willing to help me. So it 's time today to end the second part of our education and enter the third. It 's time to leave behind the middle school facility, say goodbye to the U14 teams and be introduced to JV, and most of all, time to go from the middle school community that we 're familiar with, that we love, and that we are in charge of, and go upstairs to the bigger, busier, and honestly, scarier high school, where we will all be 9th graders.
In the Authoritarian style of government on the other hand, has many benefits, advantages and like any other type of government, has its own disadvantages and weaknesses. I remember in our previous discussions, we talked about Hobbes’ state of nature which states that a person is naturally selfish and that without a government, there would be total chaos so in result, man agrees to be a part of a government. In this sense, man would agree to be under that government and would agree to be served. It is not assured that there would not be chaos if one joins a government but through this form of government, war would be lessened – and it could be render void. Under this type of government, there are benefits and advantages as well as restrictions.
On the 50th anniversary of Selma, President Barack Obama gave his speech to honor those who walked before them peacefully to make a change to improve the way of life of future generations. In this speech Obama uses many rhetorical devices to get his point across about these people he called heroes In this speech Obama uses a lot of ethos and emotional storytelling to get his point across about the way of life back then and how much courage it took to be part of such a huge movement and how it still affects us today. He talks about how they were “ordinary Americans willing to endure Billy clubs and the chastening rod; tear gas and the trampling hoof; men and women who despite the gush of blood and splintered bone would stay true to their North Star and keep marching towards justice.” They went through a lot of pain and suffrage to achieve what they did and still not everyone was behind them.
Obama hoped people could support him and give him advice sometimes. Obama hoped American would summon a new spirit of patriotism, of service and responsibility. Obama said: “For that is the true genius of America - that America can change. Our union can be perfected. And what we have already achieved gives us hope for what we can and must achieve
The United States of America has, and will always be the dream as long as the population stands for ones beliefs. Education has been a popular subject for a while, yet, where is the action? In President Obamas State of the Union Address, he used rhetorical devices to convey his intentions to advance the education system such as logos, utopia, and pathos. President Obama used logical appeal to reference current events along with statistics. He claims the “[l]atino dropout rate has been cut in half over the past 10 years,” and this shows how much the graduation rate has increased in a specific time (Obama).
An inadvertent consequence would be giving the president more power. The challenge to amend the constitution to implement the changes to filling the seats of elected positions. The ones who are currently holding these positions would have to draft legislation to make these changes. The ones who are currently making a career out of politics would have no interest in the change.
Also, every time, we defeated those reasons for alarm." But he included, "Such advance is not inescapable. It is the aftereffect of decisions we make together. " That 's a reasonable peered toward perspective of history for a pioneer who has frequently fallen into the trap of depicting history as a relentless walk toward human flawlessness. Indeed, even in these early minutes, the understood reprimand to the Republican Party 's presidential applicants was at that point present "dread" having been a sign topic in the race in this way, and specifically in the last GOP face off regarding.
without competition people wont work for their goals, they will simply adopt the mentality that they get a prize no matter what. The real world dose 't work like that. Schools are supposed to prepare you for the next step in life, Not drag you down. major sports dont give participation points and the players are non the worse for it. Finally, trophies for participation is an absolutely ridiculous idea and it should be
We should appreciate the rights that we have today and not take them for granted. My last vision for America is education. Education is extremely important. Without education, we would not have the technology that we have today. If we keep learning, maybe in the future someone will come up with a cure for cancer.
