One of the places that Obama uses anaphoras is when he is talking about the founding fathers of our nation who went and discovered America. He repeats the words “For us” for three consecutive lines. Doing so makes those lines more meaningful because they relate to us personally. Another place that Barack Obama uses anaphoras is when he is describing how he's gonna treat all of the different people in the nation. He repeats the word “To” when he is talking about the muslim religion, the poor people of our nation, and to the leaders of other nations who are out to seek conflict.
George Washington also acknowledge that he made mistakes himself and is far from a perfect individual but made clear to be open minded of criticism and corrections and to seek challenges by taking the easy routes in life. Washington’s Farewell Address is important part of our history and is taught up till this day to young American children in our schools and by Historians but few people understand the meaning and the importance behind the Farewell Letter. The Farewell Address the federal government, warnings against the party systems, the importance of religion and morality, warnings against forming a permanent foreign alliance, and a powerful military. George Washington has an overwhelming reputation by his military service, his position as our first president of the United States of America, and by leaving his position in office by leaving behind his Farewell Address to give present and future Americans insight on the history of our country and what it’s known for. It’s well encouraged to research what American history is about and how we can apply the Farewell Address into our life by living in peace, exercising our freedom of speech and choice or religions, along with respecting our governments and live in unity to achieve success.
At the first place, JFK employed the large structure “not as a call...though...” to convoy his ideas that the thing he needed at that moment was peace instead of war, which continue to show his peaceful attitude. Moreover, this rhetorical device built a base for transformation from what we did not need to what we need--- “a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle”--- to trigger both emotional accumulation and audiences’ desire to listen. This rhetorical device had similar function as repetition which I just mentioned before, and it even made a more impressive image inside JFK’s audiences’ mind. Just like the second climax is always more powerful than the first one, this parallelism was more clear and obvious than the former strategy so that his people will able to follow his ideas. After having a probable goal which built in the repetition, JFK’s audience now had a path toward it.
Sadly, only few people know how to acknowledge the solutions and important information given. The breaking point for the popularity of King’s last speech was that he mentioned the keys of a well functioning society in the world back then as well as today; which are unity, nonviolence, achievements in a society and the importance of respect for human rights. For one to consider this truly in the present year, it is more than important to consider all the effects on other people and movement that the speech held. Apart from Edward Said, the “Mountaintop” play and the Stone Mountain Park Memorial there are countless other organisations and people plainly inspired by the inspirational and truthful words of Martin Luther King Jr. In the daily life and routines of an individual it is very important to consider these ideas and concepts as motivations for changing society and making earth a safer and more unified place.
He even promoted about it to the citizens in his most influential inaugural address on 1961. The causes why John F. Kennedy was really concerned about unity were due to religions, racism and to improve relations with other country. The first reason for John F. Kennedy’s concern on unity as indicated in his speech was because of religions. In the world civilization, religions always meant for a special part in life that give the country and people the direction for the future. As the second Catholic President in the United States’ history, John F. Kennedy’s impression kept Americans from believing the power of Catholics such as Cardinal Francis Spellman and Joseph P. Kennedy.
Fifty-three years, ten months and eighteen days ago, Eisenhower gave what is now known as one of the most memorable farewell addresses in presidential history, excluding George Washington and his departing speech, to the nation. In this amazing address, Eisenhower expresses fears and warns of deficit spending, the corrupting influence of the military, and the possible corruption of science. In quick overview, this speech seems like a simple farewell to the nation he had served for so many years, but if you dive a little deeper, the meaning is much more multifaceted. After briefly thanking Congress, Ike then delves into the problems he foresees, identifying two main points and sub-points. He first speaks about concerns for the growth and budget
Throughout the entirety of the speech Thatcher builds Regan up as not marley a powerful leader but a man of unshakable character. Thatcher highlights both these aspects of Reagan's character by stating “He sought to mend America’s wounded spirit, to restore the strength of the free world.” (5-7) In painting Regan as a healing figure over the american people as well as the entirety of the free world Thatchers leaves little room for listeners to skew Regan in an negative light. Emplainting Metaphor into her speech allowed Thatcher's to create such an effect, honoring the fallen president to the utmost high extent. Such statements left Regan encompassed by his strong morality, and decimated any non benevolent notions of the President. Suffering from the devastating loss, the american people grasped at such high spoken words of Reagan, healing though the positive memories of his legacy
As Martin Luther King once said,“We must accept finite disappointment but never lose infinite hope.”. Martin Luther King born January 15,1929 was an advocate speaker for freedom and jobs of African Americans. This resolute and genial man played a main role in the ending of segregation of African Americans. Washington’s Post, “Worsening, unchecked segregation in K - 12 public schools,” Washington’s Post, “American,” Dr. Martin Luther Kings Speech assert the forthright problems Martin Luther King could fix if he were alive today. Although many claim that there peace in America it is evident that America still encounters many problems that Martin Luther King can solve if he was here today.
Addressing hundreds of worshipers at Tehran University, Jannati reiterated, "The letter is spectacular, and when I say it is an inspiration from God, I really believe in it." In May 2006, with regards to Ahmadinejad’s letter to Bush, Mohammad Ali Abtahi, close advisor of former President Mohammad Khatami, said Ahmadinejad holds himself responsible for; Invitation to Godly, spiritual and Islamic values. This kind of correspondence is inspired by the Prophet' letters to the heads of the old world. Today in a period obviously different from the one the Prophet was living in, this behavior neither results in the salvation and deliverance of Mr. Bush nor rescues the country from dangerous global problems it is now facing.
Religion has deeply been rooted in the nature of mankind since many centuries ago. Even within the scope of human rights, religion is considered as an inherent and individual right of man. To me, it is quite intriguing and amazing how centuries have passed and religion still dominates the thinking and behaviour of man typically Africans. An instance of religion dominating the minds of people which I find very hard not to talk about is our late president. Our late president Professor John Evan Atta Mills whom I hold in very high esteem as one of Ghana’s finest Presidents publicly declared his religion as being a stout Christian.
