They were able to relate to the one inch at a time proposition of pulling together to come out of the disarray the team was in. They were touched by his honesty and openness in the beginning of his speech, which was an attention getter, then intrigued by the challenge to sacrifice for the team and fight for the inches need to win and survive. The coach ended the speech with a summation of the team fighting for that inch together and then concluded with the question, “…now, what are you gonna do”. The inspired team then went on, played with their heart, and won the football game. I think this was a great inspirational speech and I think of it when I am facing difficult odds.

We need to recognize the support Christ figures in our lives give us and strive to become better not only for them, but for ourselves. It remains significant to celebrate those who cognate with Jim and support everyone no matter the cost. Jim is a Christ Figure as seen in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Jim sacrifices his fidelity when he covers Pap’s face for Huck, sacrifices his sleep for Huck’s rest, and he sacrifices his freedom for Tom’s health.
The composure and his vocal rhythm Roosevelt used was just pure genius. His intentions were clear, he wanted to reorganize and redirect government action for the betterment of the nation. He addressed the speech that day to inform American citizens of the problems the county faced and how he planned to solve them. He spoke with energy, fearless and shown a caring heart to the people during his speech. This led the people to trust him, and also it increased the effectiveness of his presentation, and I do not think the speech would have been said or presented any

After reading the corresponding chapter in Powell, I interpreted this as being a warm reminder from Paul to his followers in Philippi, encouraging them to continue carrying out the acts of the gospel even though he is not able to be there alongside them.

Despite his recent diagnosis with ALS, a neurological disorder with no cure, Lou Gehrig is able to maintain a positive and inspirational tone through his use of positive diction in order to stop his fans from pitying him because he still has so much to live for.
