Muhammad Ali has significantly benefitted modern society by creating equality between African Americans and whites, helping fight for a cure for Parkinson’s disease, and increasing the popularity of the sport of boxing. Muhammad Ali was not just one of the greatest boxers of all time; he was one of the greatest examples of all time. Muhammad Ali always said he wanted to be, more than a boxer, he wanted to inspire people all over the world (“Hauser”). To do this, Ali visited a lot of organizations such as, Make-a-Wish Foundation and the Special Olympics making dreams of the young kids a reality. Ali was always trying to put the less fortunate before himself by helping out in any way he possibly could.
Additionally, he appeals to the rest of the world by referring to different areas and countries of the globe while also connecting all human beings together as one population. In this inaugural address, Kennedy joins Americans together as one country and humans together as one population with a call to duty that relies on a substantial appeal to the ethics and morals of himself and the audience. Additionally, the use of a structurally and logically sound argument with powerful imagery and emotions used throughout the speech allows this call to action to be so useful in uniting Americans and the human race together. Kennedy aims for his speech to be used as a call to duty to unite all of his listeners. There were many pressing issues─ threats to freedom and liberty, the existence of poverty and misery, and lack of peace and civility─ that he felt should be rectified.

We have triumphed in the effort to implant hope in the breasts of the millions of our people. We enter into a covenant that we shall build the society in which all South Africans, both black and white, will be able to walk tall, without any fear in their hearts, assured of their inalienable right to human dignity — a rainbow nation at peace with itself and the world. We dedicate this day to all the heroes and heroines in this country and the rest of the world who sacrificed in many ways and surrendered their lives so that we could be free. Their dreams have become reality. Freedom is their reward.” Mandela emphasizes liberation, hope, equality and many other emotions throughout the speech.
Being Belizean-American to me means finding those perfect moments when both cultures come together in harmony. Moments like Simone Biles dominating in the Olympics not only representing the U.S but also Belize.

America is the land of the free, home of the brave. As an American I learned those words as soon as I started elementary school. America is the greatest country on earth… or is it?

As our founding fathers debated over how the government should be run, because they feared
