Elie Wiesel winner of the nobel peace prize, in his speech demonstrates hope, despair, and memory and how it affects one life. He brings this to attention when he states that “all those victims need above all is is to know what they are not alone; that we are not forgetting them...that while their freedom depends on ours, the quality of our freedom depends on theirs”(11). Just like Wiesel’s speech, A long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah shares a view similar to Wiesel , about the importance of hope, despair, and memory and how they can affect the lives of many. This relates to Ishmael Beah, a boy who violently lost his family and sucked into the world of drugs and killing. Both Wiesel and Beah have experienced traumatic events filled with despair,
Many civil rights leaders have spoken out about their controversial views of how to address injustices. For instance, during the Civil Right Movement, Kathie Amatniek and Harvey Milk both spoke to voice that their societies that are directing injustices towards gays and women. Using pathos and metaphors, Amatniek wants America to rid of traditional views of gender. Meanwhile, Harvey Milk uses using pathos, diction and humor to connect with his mainly homophobic audience to abolish the negative stereotypes of gays. In both Amatnieks Funeral Oration for the Burial of Traditional Womanhood and Milks The Hope Speech similar rhetorical appeals and stylistic devices are used to say what the audience, as an individual, should change social injustices.
For my Written Task 1, I chose to write a speech from the perspective of Romaine Patterson, who started Angel Action. Romaine Patterson founded Angel Action in 1999 in order to fight back against Westboro Baptist Church when members picketed with hate-filled signs during the funeral of Matthew Shepard, the 21-year-old who was beaten to death in Wyoming for being gay.

Chrétien’s speech is mainly targeted towards Quebecers wishing to separate from our country. This speech took place prior to the referendum regarding the issue of whether or not Quebec should proclaim its individual sovereignty. Chrétien also recognizes Quebec as a “distinct society” whilst specifying Quebec’s unique language and culture which makes it an admirable community. To bring this all together, Chrétien stresses the beauty in Canadian diversity, generosity, tolerance and respect which is idolized by other foreigners. I appreciated how Chrétien identified and acknowledged Quebecers cries for change and even says that he knows the separatist party will guarantee exactly that. This brings an essence
Smolla writes about the First Amendment in his essay, "Speech Overview". He discusses what freedom of speech is, why Americans hold the First Amendment in such high regard, and how it can be conflicting to many American's "social instincts".

In Sleuthing The Alamo, James E. Crisp investigates Sam Houston’s speech made to the soldiers at Refugio. Upon reading the speech, Crisp was in disbelieve at the vulgar, anti-Mexican words used by Houston while addressing the men of Refugio. What Crisp read had contradicted everything he had known of Sam Houston, and led him to dig deeper into the sources to find the facts. Crisp is able to restore Sam Houston’s honor by recognizing the disconnection in his speech, heavily researching the sources, and disproving Houston’s speech. Along the way, Crisp makes two discoveries that help lead to solving his case.

Many European explorers wanted to become wealthier in their travels. This is shown in Letter of Christopher Columbus to Luis de Sant Angel, where the text states, “I can give them as much gold, spices, cotton, and as many Indian slaves as they choose to send for.” Christopher Columbus is requesting that King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella fund his journey. He promises to make them rich in return. This demonstrates how explorers, like Columbus, were seeking gold and other treasures when they began exploring. The thirst for gold is also seen in Spanish Conquistador Hernando Cortez. The Dispatches of Hernando Cortes to Emperor Charles V recorded that Cortez said, “‘Send me [gold], because I and my companions suffer from a disease of the heart

This paper will be a brief summary and analysis of the destruction of the Indies.
