Surpassing the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's death, many have reflected on the life and legacy of the former president. Kennedy was shot and killed on November 22, 1963, while riding in a motorcade in Dallas, Texas. The night Kennedy was assassinated, Kennedy planned to give a speech in Texas. The last lines of the speech JFK would've given the night of his assassination included the following: "Neither the fanatics nor the faint-hearted are needed. And our duty as a Party is not to our Party alone, but to the nation, and, indeed, to all mankind. Our duty is not merely the preservation of political power but the preservation of peace and freedom. So let us not be petty when our cause is so great. Let us not quarrel amongst ourselves
I define humanity as a person who puts aside their own desires and helps out someone in need, respectful and kind to others and a person who respects feelings. You put their own needs above your own at the moment and don’t do it to get something in return. Up to date we live in a world that, although it has borders, it is limitless. People all over the world travel anywhere and everywhere, see anything, and experience every feeling that could have ever existed in human life. But it seems we are just not too satisfied yet. We try to impose borders on ourselves, we fight today to be recognized as not belonging to “ their community”, but to be labeled as part of a smaller group. We fight today to impose limits to a world in which yesterday people have fought so that it didn’t
“Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve.” George W. Bush delivered this speech on the night of the September 11 attacks. The shattered steel of the Twin Towers, once towering the New York City skyline, forever changed America and its response to terrorism. The largest foreign attack on U.S. soil appropriately gave reason to Americans to recoil in fear and lose trust in the future, but in reality, the country displayed the opposite reaction. It rebuilt upon the shadow of the past. The World Trade Center, before and after the September 11 attacks, remains a symbol of world peace and perseverance
“I Have a Dream” is Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s extremely remarkable speech, even though he expressed many other encouraging and inspiring speeches. I chose the speech entitled “Loving Your Enemies”. Given on 17 November 1957 Delivered at Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama for these reasons. Firstly, it 's one of his many inspiring speeches that is even being brought up in society now. Furthermore, “Loving Your Enemies” is something that is immensely complex, however utterly possible and crucial for humankind to exist harmoniously in this corrupt life. Ultimately, another purpose I decided on this speech is, it 's a powerful motivational speech in my views and is immensely relatable in this cruel society currently.
In his “9/11 Address to the Nation” the 43rd President of the United States of America, George W. Bush assures that America will not be affected by the unruly and evil attacks carried out on September 11th, 2001. The President drafted this speech to resist the impending fear and questioning that American citizens around the country would soon be consumed by. Because 9/11 was the most impactful, yet devastating terrorist attack on the United States to date, Bush was not able to derive his thoughts from others’ ideas and speeches, thus he was forced to dig deep and extract the emotions and thoughts aroused by the “despicable acts.” Much like any great leader, President Bush wanted to stress the importance of instilling a sense of pride and resilience in the country and fellow countrymen and women to come together and remain as one. As the head of the “brightest beacon of freedom and opportunity” President George W. Bush declares that the United States of America will “remain strong” and appear unaffected as the country continues to build and rebound from the senseless acts of terrorism and hate.
United States president, George Bush, in his nation-wide speech, “9/11 Address”, establishes himself as an American citizen as well. Which encounters to make his speech powerful in many of the people’s eyes. As president, Bush is influencing Americans and terrorist by letting them know with warning and threat they will regret what they have done.
Mr. Speaker, Mr. Vice President, Members of Congress, the First Lady of the United States, and Citizens of America:
Kimel hopes against hope that in the future the people will fight against each other. Regardless of the symbols divergent to our opinion regarding the nation we should have hope and belief of a better world or future will dawn.

Distinguished members of Congress, we the United States of America, have fought two years of this war, costly in both currency and lives, against a group of rebels, who against the Constitution seceded and formed the so-called “Confederate States of America,” but for what purpose are we fighting? We fight to end the brutal institution of slavery, to uphold our constitution and moreover to uphold this glorious union of all American states. How, you may ask, do we create a nation composed of persons of many different beliefs? We must firstly handle the issue of those engaged in the creation and protection of those treasonous states, next is the issue of use of the land of the rebel states, and finally we shall discuss the fractious issue of

Tonight, the reality of residing in Hell demanded my attention. I hear frightening sounds of an altercation that is too close for comfort. I stand up, grab my phone off the table, and prepare to dial 911 emergency. My anxiety escalates as the commotion outside does. I listen for the gun fire I have learned to expect in these situations.
The history of humanity is essentially a long string of ups and downs, rights and wrongs, Golden Ages and Great Depressions. While it may seem to the average person like humanity has made great strides, many historians believe that within the last 3,400 years, humans have only been at peace for 268 of them. The time left over, which is 3,132 years, are times of war, including World War I and II, the American Revolution, Hundred Years War, even the Fall of the Roman Empire; this time also includes many sins, wrongdoings, and accusations of the innocent. The concept of sin has been the inspiration for many works of literature. One great writer who took inspiration from those scenarios is Arthur Miller. The Salem Witch Trials inspired his Broadway
Short films are an unappreciated art-form. These little gems make us laugh, cry, and even think in a fraction of the time of a feature length film. It is the stepping stone for some starting filmmakers and the go-to medium for others. It is a chance for a filmmaker to get his or her story in a less costly manner while still making a statement.
Frederick Phillip Grove was a writer and teacher who moved to Canada in 1909 from Germany (“Frederick Phillip Grove”). I assume he met Knister through work, as both were writers involved in Canada’s literary scene. His correspondence with Knister is from 1929 to 1931, and similar to Knister’s letters to Pelham Edgar, focused on literature and writing. For instance, Grove reviewed Knister’s first novel, White Narcissus, in one letter (Grove, 15 Nov 1929). Grove was also instrumental in the shaping of My Star Predominant because he was one of three judges of Graphic Publishers’ Canadian Novel Contest, a writing content Knister My Star Predominant into. Knister cut the word count of the novel to 120,000 words due to a suggestion made by Grove that the novel would have a
