On November 22, 1963 time froze when the beloved John F. Kennedy was tragically taken from this world. We will be looking at two accounts of the assassination, the first will be the official account AKA, the Warren commission 's report. The second will be from Doug Horne and his 5 volume work with the Assassination Records Review Board. After we have looked at the two accounts I will then tell you what I believe happened.
Chris Kyle was a sniper in the Navy SEALS during the Iraq War and got awards and promotions during his career which earned him a reputation and title. In training, he busted a drug dealer in an exercise in the city. He was so skilled at his job that his chief told him to become a navigator. His largest kill was from 2100 feet away in Sadr City. He won 2 Silver Stars and 5 Bronze Stars for valor. One of the Bronze Stars that he received was for valor in combat when he fought with the Marines and saved many of the Marines’ lives and even a reporter’s life. He also had a high count of confirmed kills in his career. Later in his career, he was promoted to a Subject Matter Expert (SME) which means that he takes to high officers and tell them what could be better for equipment and training for snipers and for SEALS.

Informative Speech Going Out with a Bang General Purpose: To inform. Specific purpose: To inform my audience about the causes of school shootings in America. Central Idea: The main causes for school shootings are easy access to guns, mental instability and trauma. INTRODUCTION I. (Attention Getter)
SCHOOL SHOOTINGS: THE SECOND AMENDMENT Although only one finger pulls the trigger in school shootings, there are many different components that lead up to that final twitch of a finger. To just blame the shooter does not look deeper into the issues that surround premeditated school violence. Was it the parents that pushed the adolescent over the edge? The teachers?
“...;when you have to concoct an answer for a five year old son who is asking; ‘Daddy, why do white people treat colored people so mean?’” (King 275-276). The whole of the paragraph that this quote is from is all demonstrating pathos. The use of the child is used to relate to the audience members with children, or who remember being a child (which would be almost every member of the audience) and make them think of how hurt that child must be. Dr. Kings usage of the audience’s sympathy is widely shown before and after every quote containing
Acts of racism. To begin with, King was an African-American beat by four white police officers. Up to this point we don’t want to make any racist accusations, because it might sound stereotypical or predictable. However, we are given two specific examples about how it really turned into a racist act. During the downtown riot, while all traffic was at a stand-still, three African-American beat Reginald Denny, a white-truck driver.
King was in jail for speaking his mind about racial discrimination, but the clergyman did not like his protests accusing him of putting the lives of others in danger, but in reality it's the police who act violently and put the lives of innocent people in danger by persecuting the unruffled protesters. He also defends his organization and reminds the clergyman and the government that he has done no wrong or harm to anyone, yet he is in
April 3, 1968, Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his Mountaintop speech, “Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I 'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God 's will. … I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land!” the next day at 7:04 pm, Martin Luther King Jr. was pronounced dead at St. Joseph 's Hospital. As the leader of the civil rights movement and one of the most influential men of his time, Martin Luther King Jr. lived a dangerous life. There were many people who could have wanted King dead, conspiracies point to the government, facts point to James Earl Ray. Conspiracies began taking shape as soon as the trials started, most were presented with a lack of definite proof. A careful look at the facts known about King’s assassination would lead one to know that Martin Luther King’s assassination was not a conspiracy, it was the work of the criminal James Earl Ray.
LAS VEGAS SHOOTING : HOW IT HAPPENED "Then two rows in front of me a woman goes down and a man yells that she’s bleeding and people duck down," Compton said. "And I’m just standing there." Compton 's friend yelled at her: Get down! But she didn’t immediately understand what was happening. "Even three or four minutes into it, I was still thinking, ‘This can’t be happening.

INTRODUCTION Did you know that LGBTQ youth are twice as likely as their peers to be kicked, shoved, and physically assaulted? On top of that, 92% of LGBTQ youth hear negative messages about having a different sexuality. They feel unsafe and are physically harmed. This happens to people all over the world, and as horrible as it is, many, many people suffer from it every single day of their lives!

School shootings and active shooter situations are one of the hottest topics in America right now. There is nothing more tragic than turning on the television or radio and hearing about the deaths of children. The primary argument is that no one can ever seem to agree on what the cause of these events are, and if they can be stopped before they occur. Lately it seems that there are more and more of these events occurring, however some researchers argue that this is not the case (Rocque, M. (2012). Others argue that while the events themselves may not be increasing the high amount of publicity these events get from the mainstream media makes it seem that they are occurring more frequently (Snell, C., Bailey, C., Carona, A., & Mebane, D. (2002). No one can seem to agree on how to stop these events from happening.

Mass Shootings have been pretty common in the U.S. In the past 30 years or so. According to the Congressional Research Service, there have been 78 mass shootings in the United States since 1983. The shootings have resulted in 547 deaths and 1,023 casualties. Mass shootings are only responsible for a very small percentage of deaths in the United States, but mass shootings are happening more often than ever, a mass shooting happens on average one time a month. Most of the suspects of mass shootings are young males who usually commit the crime on their own with careful planning of the event. Most perpetrators have a fascination with weapons and the shootings usually occur in broad daylight in public places (Frances).
