On this day, a member of the U.S. Supreme Court held a bible as John F. Kennedy took the oath of office to become the nation’s 35th president.

With great awareness of both the current national and
On 6th of September 2012 President Barack Hussein Obama gave a convention speech at the election in Detroit. Obama has already been on the job as the president from 2008 to 2012 so now he is trying to get re-elected. Obamas intention in this speech is to let people trust him for four more years so the re-elect him. The people that are listening to the speech are supporting President Obama very very much for an example when they yell “Four More Yours” and it defiantly seems like the listeners want President Obama for President again. Obama underlines how he and the people have reached positive progress in the United States of America for the past four years.
Dr. Patrick Miller gave an amazing and interesting speech on the issue of the Confederate flag and monuments. The presenter went through the history of what the Confederate flag once stood for and how it became a symbol that affects minorities today. I really like how he was able to relate everything that was occurring in modern times. Something that surprised me is the vast amount of monuments that are still stand to this very day. Dr. Miller told the audience the great lengths people have gone to remove anything that is related to the Confederacy, for example, the many schools in the south were renamed after Obama since they were originally named after Confederate fugues, such as: Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, and Jefferson Davis.
He includes anaphora in the eleventh, twelfth, and thirteenth paragraphs, which state: “For us, they packed up their few worldly possessions and traveled across oceans in search of a new life. For us, they toiled in sweatshops and settled the West; endured the lash of the whip and plowed the hard earth. For us, they fought and died, in places just like Concord and Gettysburg; Normandy and Khe Sanh.” From this repetition of “For us” Obama clues his audience in on the fact that people from earlier generations fought for the generation of today’s Americans to have a better life than them. He also adds another anaphoric piece of information that builds a bond between him and his audience. Obama includes the words “We will," in the sixteenth paragraph.
Forty-fourth president and acclaimed speaker Barack Obama, in his 2009 Inaugural Speech, addresses a nation in crisis and a changing world. Obama’s purpose is to not only to thank the nation that elected him but to lay out his game plan for the next four years. He adopts a hopeful tone in order to inspire and reassure the nation he is now in charge of. Obama begins by thanking the audience, including former President George W. Bush, and acknowledging the last eight years full of trials and tribulations. His first appeal to the audience is based around logos, “data and statistics”,(7) saying “Homes have been lost, jobs shed, businesses shuttered.
The experience in exile gave David a chance to influence people in spite of their differences in the political aspect. As the war with Saul continued, David grew stronger. David learned the leadership skill of reaching out to others. He welcomed those who were outside of his group. This was very evident with his response to the deaths of Abner and Ishbosheth.
According to the transcription of his speech provided by the New York Times, Obama says, “we’re going to have to forge a new social compact to guarantee all our kids the education they need, to give workers the power to unionize for better wages. To update the social safety net to reflect the way we live now,” (“President Obama’s Farewell Address”). Obama stated points in his address such as healthcare, racism in present-day America, etc. All of which were points which he and Trump disagree on. During his speech, Obama’s audience chanted, “Four more years!” His crowd trusted him so much, and was so loyal, that they couldn’t bare to see him not in office.
On the 50th anniversary of Selma, President Barack Obama gave his speech to honor those who walked before them peacefully to make a change to improve the way of life of future generations. In this speech Obama uses many rhetorical devices to get his point across about these people he called heroes In this speech Obama uses a lot of ethos and emotional storytelling to get his point across about the way of life back then and how much courage it took to be part of such a huge movement and how it still affects us today. He talks about how they were “ordinary Americans willing to endure Billy clubs and the chastening rod; tear gas and the trampling hoof; men and women who despite the gush of blood and splintered bone would stay true to their North Star and keep marching towards justice.” They went through a lot of pain and suffrage to achieve what they did and still not everyone was behind them. Back then those who marched “were called Communists, half-breeds, or outside agitators, sexual and moral degenerates, and worse.” These emotional appeals that Obama uses is to make readers feel sad and realize the struggle that people went through and that it was a big deal back. The next rhetorical device that Obama uses is references to God.
What could also be a great push to prisoners is having art exhibitions and shared with the society since art now means so much for these men and is a way for expressing their inner hidden thoughts that were repressed. Therefore, it’s clear that getting involved into art therapy is a good way of building an active learning culture and motivating participants to engage in learning literacy in ways that suited them. As a result, participants in such projects will not only learn the collaborative work but they will also build self-confidence through the growing of their potential and ability to achieve what they’re seeking for. It may seem a little bit challenging at first but with a little patience and with the help of the professional art therapists things will get better (Tett lyn, Kristin Anderson and Fergus Mcneil

Finally, in his role as The Great Compromiser, with his numerous pieces of legislation such as the Missouri Compromise and the Compromise of 1850, he hoped to defuse confrontation regarding slavery and/or states ' rights. These pieces seemed to leave an undeniable mark on his reputation in the political world. In review of the Heidler 's book, Henry Clay: The Essential American, Lauren MacIvor Thompson of Georgia State University concluded, "The great irony of Clay’s life was that his last great testament to preserving the Union…would hasten the illness that led to his death in 1852…Clay was a titanic symbol of the Union to the very end, promoting compromise to save his country until its muscles and sinews could weather a terrible civil
