On January 20, 1981, Ronald Reagan gave his “First Inaugural Address” with the United States listening; some people were able to experience firsthand Ronald Reagan’s passion and views for our country, in Front of the Capitol Building, while others tuned in to listen on the momentous occasion.

Diction was a key factor in showing Ronald Reagan’s strong sense of nationalism; he chose powerful, hopeful words and phrases that were intended to unify the people. He shows syntax through anaphora, repetition, and parallelism. By using these rhetorical devices, he states key phrases more than once to create an urgency and therefore grab listener’s attention.

The members were happy to be in this self-help group from their discussion and attitude towards each other. It feels like family.

Members of the Search Committee: As a member of the Harvard Law School Class of 1981, I recommend that Professor David Wilkins '80 be named to replace Martha Minow as HLS Dean. I have known David since we were both students at HLS. Back then, I was struck by his gregarious and effervescent personality; he was a real "people" person. Now, almost four decades later, I am compelled to recommend David as Dean precisely because he is such a people person, a quality that motivates him to identify issues and take action that an ordinary person would not, and which makes him uniquely qualified to lead the Law School. For a number of years, I practiced higher education law, and defended state universities in tenure disputes.

He was the one president that accomplished in 8 years what took multiple presidents to do. He is the man that ended the Cold War, and made America the better place it is now.
