The address was given during a time when the president of the country was not voted in but instead was selected. George Washington was a war hero and was a favored person by many in the country.

Washington quickly gets to the point in his speech and addresses the fact that he will deny the request for another term. He believes that the country will do well without him and that someone else will take his place as a great leader.
He showed wisdom when he acted dumb in front of the guards, did not talk to anyone about who he was, and got the letter back from the guards.

Fidel Castro and Cuba were just being the Soviets puppets because they didn 't even know Russia agreed with the U.S to pull all nuclear arms back. What do you think?

From when they first met, Jim trusted Huck with his life. Being the runaway slave that he was, Jim had to trust that Huck wouldn’t turn him in.

Gallant heroes must not back down from a challenge and an audacious hero will take risks to help commoners. Courageous heroes are brave because they are fearless and courageous heros also help out the public.

Fifty years after the fatal assassination of President John Kennedy, his legacy of inspiration lives on today. His life, and the lessons he taught his nation to love, continue to enthuse the citizens of the United States of America, and because of this he is one of the most celebrated presidents in the country’s history.

Dwight didn’t believe in coming in and changing everything the past democratic presidents had done, rather he expanded social security and other social welfare programs. Ike really pushed for expansion of the interstate systems which has revolutionized the way we travel today. Some of the highways we drive on today our named after him. For the most part, America was at peace after he ended the Korean conflicts. Dwight was said to be a quiet president because he claimed he liked to work secret and in peace.
In my opinion, the “Commencement Address” by John F. Kennedy is the most powerful message about war (or peace). This selection is the most powerful message because he is expressing how peace is possible, but it’s mankind that is keeping us from truly having it. What is causing war is what man created. He is also expressing how genuine peace must be the result of many nations, through many actions. And how peace should be a process meeting the challenge of each new generation.
