This was a disturbing moment in our history that shook the very foundation of America. This is the first terrorist attack that we have experienced in the 21st century. President Bush spoke out to the American people to empower and soothe them in a vulnerable time. President Bush reassures citizens and the victim’s families that America and its people are not only strong but are safe and will rise up again. Bush effectively executes his 9/11 speech and uses rhetorical devices to catch the citizens attention, calm the America people and unite them together again.
Defeat “Defeat” is the word that rings in the heads of those people involved in the Bombing of Pearl Harbor written in the book “The USS Arizona: The Ship, the Men, the Pearl Harbor Attack, and the Symbol That Aroused America” by Joy Waldron Jasper and James P. Delgado. Throughout the book, the writers complement the credibility of the information by taking into consideration it is actual accounts and makes emotional connections with the readers as they talk about the tragedies that the men encountered and the amount of people who fought for the country and died. Lastly, the writers display their emotions by realizing the United States was just attacked and nothing is ever going to be the same again. George W. Bush, a famous president, in his famous speech on September 11th, 2001, also deals with
On December 8th, 1941 Franklin Delano Roosevelt addressed the nation with his infamous speech known as the “Infamy Speech”. The speech is still known to this day with the time length as short as seven minutes and after the speech. Congress declared war on Japan and was the start for America to intervene in World War II. This speech is a great example of rhetoric with its context, audience, purpose, message, means of delivery, and timing. The context behind Roosevelt’s speech was the tragedy that was the attack on Pearl Harbor where 2,335 American lives were killed by kamikaze Japanese zeroes, the nation was shocked and wondered why this would happen.
President, George W. Bush, in his “ Address to the Nation on 9/11” speaks to the American people to address what has happened and what the plan is to fix the disaster. George W. Bush’s purpose is to give a sense of hope, security, and relief in a scary and grief filled time. He adapts to a feeling of unity that calls all Americans to come together in this crisis. In his speech, George W. Bush first talks about how even though America was hurt by these attacks we were not broken. He goes on to talk some about how amazing the American people’s response to the situation was and how people came together in the hard time.
“If you vote for RJ, you obviously enjoy 9/11.” This was a tweet from a teen in RJ Khalaf’s class when he was running for student body president. The teen said this because RJ was Muslim, but RJ knows that about 98% of Muslims are just like him. That they don’t mean any harm, like the terrorists from 9/11 did. Also, a 7th-grade girl, Helaina Hovitz, survived 9/11. Even though there was a major amount of terror, there is still hope from the day September 11th, 2001.
He also appeals to logos when he uses really lengthy sentences and then uses a really short sentence. This appeals logically because the short sentences then stand out, as if they were highlighted or bolded. Bush’s usage of alliteration when he says “deliberate and deadly terrorist acts.” appeals to logos. It does so by appealing to the reader’s rhythmical senses and makes the reader pay more attention and focus on the rest of the speech. Bush uses a rhetorical device in this quote; “And we responded with the best of America, with the daring of our rescue workers, with the caring for strangers and neighbors who came to give blood and help in any way they could,” Bush not only sounds well by rhyming, he uses “we responded” once and leaves it out the next couple
Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the 32nd president of the United States and attended Columbia Law School as well as Harvard University. During his presidency, the United States was blindsided by a malicious attack from Japanese forces at Pearl Harbor. In his address to the Nation speech that followed, he effectively convinces the American people and Congress that war on Japan is the best option by using strong word choice and a sense of nationalism to draw emotion from his audience. These appeals to pathos, along with integrating a clear call-to-action for the American people, creates an effective argument for his speech. To begin, Roosevelt’s strong use of language, which is seen throughout the speech, creates an emotional response among his audience and exemplifies the way he uses appeals to pathos
I think that the fact that it is so short is just another reason as to why it should be a master speech because it is so impactful and motivating in such a small amount of words. This speech is exactly 277 words long, which mans he was able to leave his mark on history in such a short speech. Also, he inspired thousands of people with this speech by telling them that just because something is holding you back that doesn't mean you have to stop. In conclusion, Lou Gehrig's farewell speech was a short and sweet speech that left its mark in history and will never be forgotten. I hope this speech can be a part of your master speech unit next year so students can enjoy it like I
