Quote: “There are places, and moments in America where this nation’s destiny has been decided….. Selma is such a place….. We gather here to celebrate them.” (Obama, 2015, p.1) Explanation: Obama clearly states throughout his speech that he is here to celebrate America and Selma. A way to say look how far we have come. He feels that this was a stepping stone, a big moment in history that he admires. Audience Answer: Obama talks to all of America, and the whole world hears. He is talking to America, but he is
By using we, us and our he includes everyone and unifies the citizens of the United States and the world. Kennedy says “Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans -- born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage, and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this nation has always been committed...” He is saying that the old generation had passed their ideas on to the new generation who are willing to sacrifice so that their rights are not taken from them. By saying “friend and foe alike” he is bringing everyone together and not letting them be different just because they are a friend or a foe. Additionally by describing traits of all the Americans, he unifies the citizens of America because all were tempered by war and proud of their heritage so it allows citizens to bond of common history. The torch being passed to a new generation is a metaphor which Kennedy uses to show that the original colonists’ ideals were not beginning forgotten but instead carried
President Lyndon B. Johnson once said, “The Great Society rests on abundance and liberty for all,” in his speech that changed American’s views on society and the outcomes that can occur (“Great Society”).With the death of President Kennedy in November of 1963, it was Johnson’s duty to follow the path of Kennedy’s vision of making America and its future great for everyone. President Johnson named his vision and passion for the future of America that he strived to lead the Great Society(“Great Society”). Johnson’s speech on May 22, 1964 was played out for America and its people to educate the importance to supply our society with wealth, wisdom, and experience to successfully build a country where the struggled labor becomes a value for the
On 28 August 1963 Dr. Martin Luther King stood at the Lincoln Memorial with over 250,000 people gathered to hear him give his speech. His speech was “I Have a Dream.” He spoke about the problems with racism in the US. He wanted civil and economic rights restored. The first line of his speech was “I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation” (Martin). Dr. King was there to talk about freedom.
In both of these texts Dr. King used pathos and logos to inspire change and reach out to the people during the civil rights movements. To begin with Dr. King used logos in his speech to educate the people and give them evidence and logic. Dr. King used both logos and pathos in his speech here is an example of logos used in his speech. “ Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, Signed the Emancipation Proclamation.”(King 261) is the quote that Dr. King wrote in his speech. He is telling them that the African Americans have been free for five hundred years and that was a great point in history but the African Americans aren’t treated equally or fairly.
Obama used anaphoras in his speech to persuade his audience that “we” are in this together. Furthermore, President Obama’s first inaugural speech contained patriotism, allusions, and anaphoras to appeal to the effect of pathos. His diction helps to persuade his audience that he is understanding and emotionally connected to the situation that America has been in and the importance of sticking to the ideas that our founding fathers have implemented thus far in America’s
An anonymous person once said that “we aren’t called to shine our own lights; we are called to reflect His.” A born again Christian, once fully understanding the gospel and putting his or hers trust in Jesus, will desire to want to grow and obey God in order to honor and glorify Him, and since the only one who kept God’s law perfectly was Jesus, then one will want manifest and imitate Christ in everything he or she does. Not only does reflecting Christ’s image glorify God, it stands out to others as well. All true believers experience radical change because of the Spirit, and that change shines like a bright light towards other people leading them to ask, wonder, and desire that change and growth in their own lives as
for the people shall not perish from the earth (1).” He gives the audience a confidence and hope of a new future. He exposes the audience to a feeling of obligation and appreciation towards the people who gave up their lives for freedom. Finally, Lincoln uses a logos appeal in his “Gettysburg Address.” His opening statement, “Fourscore and seven years ago, our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal (1),” illustrates the logic behind why these men were fighting. They were struggling to gain liberty and equality in a broken nation. Logically, it only makes sense that if the people before them died for these causes, then continuing to fight is completely justified and noble.
One of the most famous speeches in the history of the United States is the Gettysburg Address, delivered by Abraham Lincoln on November 19, 1863, in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The speech is directed to the American citizens and the soldiers to gain their support; Lincoln also wanted to lead the people to peace and prosperity. The main focus of the speech was to honor the soldiers that fought in the Battle of Gettysburg and to emphasize the importance of liberty. The tone of the speech is extremely hopeful in such a way that he hopes the audience will live a peaceful life. Throughout the speech, Lincoln uses repetition to really get the point across to the people just how dedicated he was and how dedicated the people should be.
Smith presents an excellent reminder to preachers that their duty must be to respect God’s word and unite it with his assembly. The preacher must let the scripture characterize the doctrine and express it in a manner that influences the hearer. Doctrine eventually must inspire our living. Smith provides a lot of examples of this within and even concludes the book with two example sermons that puts what he framed in the rest of the book to practice. The preacher has to be an exegetical escort guiding his people into the proximity of God.
Obama was one of the world leaders who paid tribute to this 87-year-old Nobel Laureate, Holocaust survivor, and author. “Elie Wiesel was a great moral voice of our time and a conscience for our world,” Obama wrote on Twitter. “He was also a dear friend. We will miss him deeply.” Wiesel spent the subsequent decades fighting for human rights, never shying away from confronting leaders—in 1993, he pushed former president Bill Clinton to take action on human rights violations in the former
Philippians 2:12-14 speaks about this spiritual co-operation between us and God, “Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence, continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose. Do everything without complaining or arguing.” I love this scripture as it gives each of us some clear principles for living in Christ. You work out your own salvation. As salvation is a work of the Holy Spirit in our lives and by obedience we work it out or live it out! It is a responsibility placed upon each believer to decide to obey God’s word and live out this great salvation worked in us by Christ.
In the beginning Obama engaged all his audience by acknowledging his audience watching him though the news with hand gestures and by inviting everyone who has not visited the Everglades that they should because he recommends it. I would argue that this made the audience such as myself feel a personal connection with him and the Everglades. He emphasized how important the Everglades are by referring to it as ‘one of America’s national treasures”. I believe this really spoke to the audience because his audience seems to be people who are passionate about Earth Day and want to preserve the Everglades. I would argue that by Obama recommending the Everglades people would get more concerned about it because the audience that hasn 't gone probably wants to go now that the president recommended it.
The consequences endured when making the Christian choice are still full of blessings and uphold the moral absolutes set by God. As a Christian, I cannot entertain the ideas of an Atheistic worldview, especially the philosophy of human life. I am confident in my beliefs and what God has done through Jesus Christ. If given the opportunity to parent a child with Down’s syndrome, I would face this challenge with my faith and support from the body of
