Intro Growing up, we have all heard the many stories of George Washington. While many recognize him as one of the most important figures in U.S history, others only recognize him by one of his multiple accomplishments; he was the 1st president of the United States. With presidency comes the variety of duties and responsibilities, the main being a president 's inaugural adress. In George Washington 's very 1st inaugural, he uses three rhetorical strategies: personification, amplification, and last but not least, repitition to convey what he truly wants for the States and why a successful Constitution should be in order.
He is the reason our sports are open to all. He left a lasting legacy as a hero to all, someone who gave up his life to undiscriminate professional sports. The origin of Jackie Robinson 's call to change started when he realized the problems in society that really did affect Jackie and his family. Robinson’s family was the only
Unity is the cornerstone of a country. It is certainly essential to have unity in a country in order to maintain peacefulness and prohibit any terror, war as well as destruction. Hence, the 35th President of United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy was very concerned to amplify unity in the nation. President John F. Kennedy always has no doubt that it was extremely important for a nation or even the whole worldwide to achieve unity for success. He even promoted about it to the citizens in his most influential inaugural address on 1961.
John F. Kennedy won the 1960 US presidency election by a small margin as the youngest and the only Roman Catholic president in history. In the peak of the cold war, Kennedy delivered the most influential inaugural address of all time, in which he inspires and unites people listening, watching or reading his speech around the world. I believe Kennedy successfully establishes his legacy of encouraging people to take positive actions for liberty through his inaugural address with the efficient use of ethos, logos and pathos. Kennedy gradually builds his ethos as a strong yet approachable leader in the speech. As the president of US, Kennedy has an automatic ethos.
George Washington was indispensable in launching the U.S government. Although many opposed his political views at the time, Washington's leadership capabilities were unquestionable after his victory in the American Revolution. Our victory over Great Britain would have been doubtful if not for Washington and his judgement. Before becoming president, Washington led in drafting the Constitution, which is the foundation of America. When he became president, Washington believed in unity and a strong central power.
Kennedy’s Inauguration Then & Now: A Comparative Analysis The inauguration of John F. Kennedy was and remains today a dynamic and emotional event which profoundly shaped America and its future. The inaugural speech itself is credited with ushering in an era of global change, rising from a divided America in the midst of real world issues surrounding the Cold War and other international tensions.

In the so-called cold war era, along with the rise of the Soviet Union and the elevation of intensity between Communism and the Capitalism, the continuity of freedom is in the critical moment. John F. Kennedy wisely combines the technique of juxtaposition as well as specify to illustrate the seriousness of the situation as well as the actions America is going to take to his audiences— American people, Soviet Union’s leaders, and the rest of the world—in his inaugural speech on January 20, 1961. Juxtaposition is a technique that placing of two items side by side to create certain effect, reveal an attitude, or accomplishes some other purpose. By employing the technique of juxtaposition, J.F.K. clearly tells the entire nation that America will “pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, and oppose any foe to ensure the survival and the success of liberty.” This technique is pretty convincing because it underscores the writer’s thought that America will defend freedom from any potential hazard and effectively conveys to his audience that since the principal of America spirit is based on the freedom, so they may agree with J.F.K. that all people should keep the freedom whenever
In 1984, it was again time to elect a president. Democrat Walter Mondale, former vice president under Jimmy Carter, was running against the current president, Ronald Reagan. Because of their lead in the polls, Reagan and his team decided not to attack Mondale, but to form a campaign based on being able to feel good about America again. Amongst the many commercials Reagan 's team did, "Morning in America" stands out as one of the greatest political ads ever. It created a sense that America was once again strong and Americans could feel secure in the knowledge that they were living in the greatest country in the world.

He recognized that regardless of history and biology all humans feel pain and that growth as a society only occurs when we accept and embrace all others.
The American Constitution is recognized as one of the greatest documents to ever have been formed in American history. It changes and evolves with the times as needed to form to new and improved American ways. As great as the document is, some questions still arise from it such as, were the framers of the Constitution democrats or elitists, and how democratic is our constitution?

On January 20, 1961, former president John F. Kennedy orated his inaugural address at the United States Capitol. Kennedy’s deliverance highlighted his prospective presidency, enumerating key issues such as: economic expansion, social advancements, and new diplomatic relations. Consequently, it was here, when Kennedy questioned his audience one of the most historically-acclaimed quotes in United States history, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country”. Kennedy, the youngest president our Nation had ever seen, beautifully defined civic responsibility. Civic responsibility lets the individual discover and internalize their own potential and allows the individual to assist others to do the same.
Starting around 1947, the United States entered a war-like situation against the Soviet Union. The two nations competed on gigantic scales, trying to achieve more in terms of invention, creativity, and efficiency. As a result, President John F. Kennedy spoke at Rice University on September 12, 1962, attempting to excite the audience about the new space program and its upcoming mission to the moon.
