Lincoln speaks in a sympathizing, determined tone to address the Americans who are mourning the loss of their loved ones and to the rest of Americans who he wants to see a change from. Lincoln makes a reference to our founding fathers at the start of his speech to remind his audience of how our nation started. Giving a description of the origin of our country depicts the purpose of America's existence. A place that was once united against one cause has become a place that is divided and against each other.

Paired with the speech Antithesis is especially effective in getting his words to inflict impact and feeling for example”One would accept war rather than let a nation survive”this shows how Lincoln is reflecting back on how the war was genuinely petty in how both sides were acting.
The Vietnam Memorial Wall allows us to feel the pain and remorse of the Vietnam War. It makes us realize how many good American men gave their lives for our country, under direct orders. Whether or not the war served a purpose is out of this topic, because 58,195 men died during that short period of time. That is what really matters and what must be remembered. The memorial serves it’s purpose, allowing us to remember the loss of so many men.
Kennedy stresses that he understands what the country is going through and he understands the state of division that the nation is in, and he invites the country along a path to unity and peace. At the end of this speech, he tells the people to go home, to stay out of the streets, and to most importantly say a prayer for Martin Luther King Jr. and his family, and to also say a prayer for our great country. The speech was a mere four minutes and fifty-five seconds, but it had a great impact on the country and made so many people realize what needed to be done to combat hatred in this
Pathos is when the speech appeals to the audience’s emotions. President Abraham Lincoln uses pathos is this speech to console the audience for the losses that the country has endured during the Civil War. Lincoln uses pathos to convey sadness when he says, “The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract.” When saying this Lincoln appeals to the people’s emotions by explaining that their loved ones struggled there and he also appeals to the feeling of pride they feel for their loved ones who dedicated their lives to their cause. Another example of pathos in this speech is, “...that from these honored dead we take increased devotion-that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain…” This quote again appeals to the sadness that the people feel over the loss of their loved ones.

One response, from the newspaper writer/editor, Mr. Underwood, highlights what some of the few progressive residents stand for, all with some underlying symbolism. “He likened Tom’s death to the senseless slaughter of songbirds by hunters and children” (Lee 323). In this quote readers see how Lee uses a very minor character, who is white, to represent the feelings of some of Maycomb’s residents. Additionally, this is relevant to the theme because few people would be surprised if Tom Robinson’s death wasn’t even mentioned, and yet Mr. Underwood subjects his readers to a most poetic interpretation of Tom Robinson’s death, which he believes shouldn’t have happened. Additionally, one can assume that Mr. Underwood likens Tom’s death to the death of a mockingbird (a songbird) as it is stated earlier in the book, by Ms. Maudie, that “ …’they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us.

The reason he wanted an unproportional response is because he upset that America is unable to protect its citizens like the way the Roman Empire did.
