Is a horse considered a man’s best friend? Horses have been by our side for over six thousand years helping us and companioning our long days of evolution and work. They have most definitely become as close to us humans as any other pet would be. Other countries, however, don’t appreciate the strong bond that we have built for so long. Foreign countries have come to believe that horse’s meat is tender and delicious enough to serve on their plates!
Henry’s speech was the startup of the continental army, which would protect this young nation from the tyranny of British rule. By incorporating pathos Mr. Henry was able to push the men of the convention toward voting for the army. He pulled at their desires for independence and strong feelings nationalism by introducing the idea of unity between the colonies, stating. “I am not a Virginian, but an American” (Henry).

They also live the cowboy lifestyle, which the novel both romanticizes and examinesin all its brutality and precariousness.

Theodore Roosevelt’s speech “National Duties” calls for nationalism and unity, as it says that each individual must work hard and that individuals must work together. Furthermore, it works to motivate our nation by using two ideas – what a nation may leave behind and how a nation should conduct itself. The speech itself, although given while he was Vice President, accurately describes what his actions as president were, whether it be regarding nationalism, personal matters, or foreign diplomacy. His ideology of how a nation should act, seen in the phrase “speaking softly and carrying a big stick” works to motivate many, including our current military, because it focuses on civility backed with power. This idea of leadership style, combined with looking at what Theodore Roosevelt did during his presidency, is very similar to Trump’s way of leading our nation, although they came into office with different political experience.
On March 23, 1775, “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death” was heard all throughout St. John 's Church. These famous words were not only from a great speaker looking to have his voice heard, but the words truly had an everlasting impact on freedom’s history. In the speech, “Give me Liberty or Give me Death” by Patrick Henry, he used figurative languages such as allusions, parallelism, and biblical references to bring his speech to life. These examples are just a few ways that Henry used literary devices, to create emotion and realism. In this specific piece of literature, qualities like patriotism and individualism are exceedingly prominent, this all being due to Henry’s use of literary devices.
In William Shakespeare’s Henry V, the character of King Henry delivers some powerful verbiage, known as St. Crispin’s Day Speech, to his troops in order to rally the men for battle. In this speech, King Henry chooses to invoke themes such as glory, religion, and comradery to make the battle they are about to fight immortal in the soldiers’ minds and to motivate them to fight together. These themes draw similar emotions in all men, no matter their background; all men have the need for honour, the urge to please the deity they believe in, and the need to trust in their fellow men. Every man wants his story to be remembered. King Henry promises this by telling the soldiers that “from this day to the ending of the world, / But we in it shall be remembered” (ll.
He is deep in self-thought as he continues with his point that common patriotic phrases are not necessarily positive and may seem problematic for a reader. Sloan indicates that someone with issues of patriotism or issues of authority may have difficulty agreeing with the expression because some slogans demand that readers agree. Rather than dismissing what might be considered absurd, maybe even in his own mind, he explores and analyzes other various examples of these patriotic expressions in terms of actions as if they were acted upon. In the majority of the article, more than half, Sloan seriously questions patriotic slogans. He examines the words of each one that comes to mind and provides illustrations that question the particular slogans meaning.
After the publication of The Jungle, changes has been made to help protect citizens from diseased meat, but Sinclair still thought that more could be done to make the industry titans more reliable. He corresponded President Roosevelt with his concerns, “You must understand that the thing which I have called the ‘condemned meat industry’, is a matter of hundreds of thousands of dollars a month” (Department of Agriculture). Writing The Jungle was not just a way for Sinclair to gain popularity, he genuinely cared for his fellow Americans, and wrote to the president to fight and win justice for
According to the article author Robert Morgan’s article titled “Lions Of the West”, Morgan’s way of writing this speech go the audience to agree with him in his writing. From reading the text Morgan seemed as if he was for the Westward Expansion by how he was describing the background information and he was giving examples of how some people did things and what he done differently. Robert Morgan’s text “Lion Of The West”, goes along with other texts as well such as Chief Joseph Speaks Selected Statements and Speeches by the Nez Perce Chief, The Way To Rainy Mountain by N. Scott Momaday,Undaunted Courage by author Stephen E. Ambrose. All of these texts goes along because all of these texts are about the Westward Expansion. In the text of Chief

Numerous looked for advanced education and entered the callings at all levels, especially as doctors and legal advisors; the national parks are a tribute to their presence and adoration for America 's characteristic
In the Gettysburg Address, Lincoln’s purpose when writing the text is to address the U.S. Civil War, and provide opinion on why the Union must fight against the Confederacy: to preserve American union, and preserve what America was founded on. I think the strategies Lincoln used here were very fitting for the occasion, and appealed well to the audience. When Lincoln alludes to the Declaration of Independence in the beginning, he is reminding his audience of the American values of equality and union. Then, he uses repetition to emphasize a point about the fact that Americans must carry the honor of fallen Gettysburg soldiers, heightening the emotion they feel at the Gettysburg Memorial Service. Finally, he heightens the sense of emotion further
But Sacagawea helped obtain horses for the men and translated for them during the expedition. She also helped guide the men because she was familiar with the territory. What surprises me is that Sacagawea did a great deal of help all while carrying for a child at young age. There is also another story that is not recorded but is often told is about a women named Watkuweis who saved the men by telling not to harm them. Thomas Jefferson saw his men, Lewis and Clark as high ranking men with strong qualities.
Indians were seen as a part of the citizen ship of the country as they were given the opportunity to enjoy the rights of all Americans. One such right was the ability to join the armed forces to defend the country in World War Two which gave the Native American a sense of belonging. Furthermore the Federal government through congress in 1946 acknowledged the fact that they had mistreated Native Americans and offered compensation to the tune of 800 million dollars which did more harm than good as it caused unwanted internal conflicts within tribes. Another development to improve life for Native Americans and its relationship with the government was the reintroduction of self governance which aimed to preserve the cultural predilection of Native Americans to tribal governance in which they are able to make and adhere to their own rules and
Good evening NOVA, I’d just like to start this off with saying how proud I am to come speak here about our service men and women who have dedicated their lives for the safety of our wonderful nation. Paying it back to these people are one of the key issues that I’ve been striving to fight for in the Senate, as we do owe the honor upon these people to fight tooth and nail for them. Now I do know that I’m not very well know, I’ll introduce myself, I’m Senator Johnny Ron of Utah, and I’d just like to assure everyone in this room that I do fully believe in giving back to our veterans in any way possible. Washington is a tough place to get things done when it comes to Veterans issues, as we don’t have the time for the partisan bickering that usually ensues throughout the hill. As Governor Allen stated before, it is shameful to see our government leaving Veterans behind.
