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).
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. It also strongly casts his image as a loving father and a husband. He conveys his emotions through the lines: "America, I believe we CAN build on the progress we've made and continue to fight for new jobs and new Opportunity and new security for the middle
In his concluding paragraph he states that in all of his research it can be concluded that the illegal immigrants have a large, positive impact on the United States economy. He also mentions that future immigration policy should recognize the impact that illegal immigrants have on the United States economy, and that deportation would hurt the United States economy
The hard work of achieving the American dream is where the immigrant’s experience comes from. One program called DACA has helped immigrants, it has granted them a work permit and a legal status to be able to stay in this country and avoid the risk of getting deported. Many of them have lived or have been born in this country and wants to contribute and continue to make it their home when talking about this program. Trump is undecided about what he is going to do with DACA, but during his election
Once an ancestor, grandparent, or parent is deceased they are then recognized and honored every year. Koreans as a whole are very proud of their traditional culture. They have strong family values and consider the family as one of the most important things in their lives. Without family they believe they have nothing or no one to have their back. The welfare of the family is way more important then the welfare
I learned many things from both households and because of that I am grateful for each day I have with my family. My family has showed me both side of our society. I have seen and lived in a lower class family one week and then go to an upper middle class household the next. This truly shaped who I am and how I handle problems in life. In both houses taught me hard work and
For instance, this role plays in my family because even though I do not live with a lot of members in my household, recognition is significant in my family because we communicate on a daily basis. Each day even a simple hello makes a significant difference in my
You can’t trust ’em to be fair.”(84), but these Americans like Jake were immigrants themselves only a few generations ago. Assimilating to American culture takes time along with learning the language and social norms. The first few generations are the most difficult, but afterwards the immigrants can be accepted as American people and in many cases slowly become more and more successful as time goes on. The Shimerdas were aware of this, as Atonia explains to Jim shortly after New Year’s Eve why her family would be able to pay off a debt to the Burdens.”But my mama, she want Amrosch for be rich”(59). Immigrants come for the future generations, “For Ambrosch my mama come here.”(59).
For example, the speech creates unity, a commonplace, by the use of pronouns. In the first sentence, Bill Clinton said “we’re here”, which shows that they, all Americans , are inclusive in choosing a strong president for America. Next is the use of diction. He mentions how Obama can build “America’s Dream economy”, which is also what everyone in the audience wants. Notice how he uses the “America” instead of “our”.
As equal opportunity is set in America, it is a matter of who is ready to find those opportunities. The American dream is alive and well, but only a possibility for those who are willing to. The american dream manifests the power of hard work. Many may see it as cliche, but it is a valid point that society overlooks- that people who are motivated and driven will always find a way to achieve their goals.
