In the two speeches, The Gettysburg Address and I have a Dream, they are both organized in different ways. These speeches were organized using tone, showing the purpose, and how it was structure. In both speeches the purpose is different., but similar. First, In the story I have a Dream, it is used to inform and encourage us about what we can become and how we could all become free from slavery, with the South, how blacks and whites could get along. As King states, “... signing a promissory note…” “... this note was a promise that all men yes black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” “Let us not seek satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.” The Gettysburg Address, to inform us, the war and what could and will happen if the North wins.
When Bäumer returns home, he was unable to identify with memories of his youth nor understand the patriotic enthusiasm of the older generation. Chapter seven of “All Quiet on The Western Front” it was most apparent how war took away the souls of the lost generation and Paul. He was unable to comfortably adjust back to his pre-war lifestyle. Confirming his worries about his detachment and alienation from civilian life (All Quiet on The Western Front). Paul can no longer suppress the trauma he faced on the front.
Abraham Lincoln Quote “Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves; and, under a just God, cannot long retain it.” This quote was stated by Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln was born in 1809 and died in 1865. He was the sixteenth president of the United States, conserved the Union throughout the Civil War and created the freedom for the slaves. Lincoln composed a letter to Henry L. Pierce and other congressman regretfully declining his attendance to Thomas Jefferson’s birthday celebration. Throughout Lincolns letter he contends for the release of the slaves stating to congress, “This is a world of compensations; and he who would be no slaves, must consent to have no slave.
Had he had a close friend die before the war, it is certain that he would not lie to their mother about how it happened, nor would he not show any emotion, so this interaction displays how his ability to display emotion has been impeded. In addition, the entire situation that Paul goes through when his father “drags [him] along to a table with a lot of others.”(p. 166) He sees that they don’t understand what war is like at all, as when “a head-master shakes hands with [him] and says: ‘So you come from the front? What is the spirit like out there? Excellent, eh? Excellent?’” (p.
It was a wakeup call to basically the entire country to come together and remember those who fought in the war. This also resembled the prize of freedom. In the document D it says,” But, in larger sense, we can not dedicate - we can not consecrate – we can not hallow – this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract.” Another example states,” That this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom and that government of the people, by the people, of the people, shall not perish from the earth.” Again, this was a wakeup call for the entire country. People didn’t really know what was happening in the war.
it is shown from the text that Martin Luther King, Jr. wants to live in a place without segregation. In the text it states, “I say to you today, my friends, that even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its Creed: “ we hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal.” I have a dream that one day on the Red Hills of Georgia, sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at a table of Brotherhood. I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of Injustice, sweltering with the heat of Oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
He realized… “It occurred to me that anyway one more Sunday was over, that Maman was buried now, that I was going back to work, and that, really, nothing had changed. “ (Camus, 24) Explicate This shows how little importance he allowed his mother to have in his life. This further accentuates that he had given up her place in his life, which plays into the elements of philosophical suicide. He acted as if her death changed nothing, as if she was insignificant. The significance he places with her position in his life is partially his fault, because that’s all he allowed her to be.
“And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream” persuade people who listen this speech that start struggling with American who defaulted on the promissory note what means all men are equality and no racial discrimination, and never give it up until the Negro to be free. The examples of ethos display the purpose of speaker that free millions of Negro slaves and
Indeed, the title of the speech “I have a dream” only became a slogan of the civil rights movement due to the repetition of King’s vision which is always preluded by the statement. King acts as the sole voice of the “Blacks” and suggests “I have a dream”: “one day this nation will live out the true meaning of its creed…one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of the former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood…every valley shall be exalted”. By repeating this phrase King is able to envision a new America that is truly united and illicit feelings of hope amongst his followers because the repetition engrains King vision in their minds. King further uses facts to support his “dream” as he delineates all of America when he prolongs that even in “Alabama with its vicious racists” there will be brotherhood amongst the “Blacks and Whites”. Similar to Alabama, southern states of Georgia and Mississippi were also reliant on slave labour to power their agricultural industry.
King describes a path for the African American people to follow “... to make real the promises of Democracy.” (600), “...to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path racial justice.” (600), and “...to open the doors of opportunity to all of God’s children.” (600). King uses this to provide a plausible, rational path for the equal rights movement to work towards. King also states “[t]here will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the Negro is granted his citizenship rights.”, in this King informs everyone that the equal rights movement will not give up and will persevere until they are granted their rights that they were promised. King also explains that it would be detrimental for America to ignore the importance and determination of the movement. King uses these phrases to empower the movement and forewarn the opposers of the coming “... whirlwind revolt ...” to “... shake the foundation of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges.” (600), this message being central to his point of equal justice and equal rights, for everyone, which I believe gave the movement a boost in strength and endurance to power through adversity and gain the suffrage and rights they
Valley Forge was in Pennsylvania the camp was in made in mid-December in 1777. I needed to stay to not only protect the people whom I’m fighting for, but for my family. I needed to know they were going to be ok and nothing would happen to them. So would have I not re-enlist or quit no and I sure have an explanation. I decided to re-enlist and not be a summer soldier.
It’s August 28, 1963 and I have a dream. I have a dream that this nation is going to become independent and that colored men and white men will be able to be united. I have a dream that one day colored men and white men can use the same bathrooms and can use the same drinking fountains. I have a dream today that nations would accept the fact that peace is needed. I have a dream today that this nation would understand that all men and women are created equal.
I believe that education should be a right in America and that every single child here should have the equal opportunity to a quality education, without any burdening costs to their families. The 14th Amendment is supposed to ensure that this a reality in America, as it states that, “no living child in that state* [*a state that establishes a public school system] may be denied equal access to schooling”. This Amendment was ratified in 1868, and yet the fight for equal education continues to be a struggle for minorities to this day. One of the, if not the, most famous public fights against this injustice was the case Brown v. Board of Education in Topeka, Kansas. Before this case, schools were segregated, but deemed “separate, but equal”.
In "The Gettysburg Address," Abraham Lincoln brings his point across of dedicating the cemetery at Gettysburg by using repetition, antithesis, and parallelism. Abraham Lincoln uses repetition in his speech to bring a point across and to grab the audience attention. For example, President Lincoln states, "We can not dedicate--we can not consecrate-- we can not hallow-- this ground." Abraham Lincoln is saying the Gettysburg cannot be a holy land since the ones that fought there will still be remembered, and Lincoln is assuming that the dead and brave that fought would still want Gettysburg to improve on more. Also, "The Gettysburg Address," uses antithesis to maks the audience have a deeper meaning on the speech.
