The word “pathos” comes from the Greek words for suffering and experiences. Kennedy, or his speechwriter, obviously knew this principle. The President-to-be makes numerous statements regarding the “solemn oath our forebears prescribed” to “almighty God.” Kennedy is quick to remind us that people have died so that we can protect liberty with him. The “heirs of that first revolution” have passed their “torch” to “a new generation of Americans.” We have been “tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace” and if we are “proud of our ancient heritage, and unwilling to witness...the slow undoing of... human rights” than we need to fight with Kennedy or risk disgracing our
Most importantly, the people’s deep feeling attachment for the King now was changed into the feeling of being betrayed by their “father”. Tackett in his book examines the fact that the massacre at the Champ de Mars was as the consequence of the King’s flight. Furthermore, he shows that the King’s flight was psychologically catastrophic and the event broke the promise among Louis and his people. “It was one of those events with such a powerful emotional impact that people would remember all their lives where they had been and what they had been doing when they were first informed In this sense, the weeks following the flight to Varennes marked an anticipation, a prefiguration of both the psychology and the procedures of the Terror.” (pp.

In the opening year of the Peloponnesian War, 431 B.C.E., Pericles delivered, and according to Plato may not have written, a speech praising Athenian democracy while also remembering all the Soldiers that had died in the service of Athens. He took the opportunity to reinforce the Athenian constitution and to let people know that the deaths of their Soldiers was justified to uphold the democracy. Pericles cites that when Athens goes to war it goes alone. He goes onto to say that when other countries go to war against Athens that they must bring their “confederates” (Funeral Oration of Pericles) with them if they are to stand a chance at victory. This, I believe, is incorrect or at least a twisting of the truth depending on your perception.

Son of a Spartan king named Anaxandrides who had died in 520 B.C., it was his right to become king when his older half-brother Cleomenes I, who was also a son of Anaxandridies, died under a violent circumstances in 490 B.C, without having produced a male heir. His shared rule over the Spartan society spaned from 490 B.C until his death just ten years later in 480 B.C. His death was seen as a heroic sacrifice because he sent most of his army away when the Persian army had advanced. Greek historians have covered a lot of King Leonidas’s history in his roles as King and as general in the battle of Thermopylae, however, almost everything that is known about the Kin comes from the work of the Greek historian Herodotus, who had lived from 484 B.C until 425 B.C. As one of the two kings of Sparta were to take responsibility for the military, and one for the political side, Leonidas was both a political leader as well as a military one.
