110 “America’s Gift to My Generation” The veterans are some of the greatest people in our country. The veterans fought, and some even died just to protect our country from war. They have given us so many gifts. Just like Herbert Hoover said, “My country owes me nothing. It gave me, as it gives every boy and girl, a chance.
Kennedy is one of the most famous speeches that I have reading and studying in life. It was very great speech that talks about the poverty of everyone living in America without help from the government. Therefore, the speech of John F. Kennedy has used three rhetorical elements are the pathos, ethos, and logos to the audience and everyone around the world that everyone can stand up to speak of what he/she wants for their life, as same as what Kennedy did throughout his speeches. He also promises to everyone in America let believe on him that he can help the world and everyone with a better life and freedom in the United States. As same as John F. Kennedy said: ‘And so, my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you...ask what you can do for your country" (Kennedy Book).
When looking at the back cover of Michael Shaara’s The Killer Angels, positive reviews of the book, and a brief summary can be seen. The summary begins, “In the four most bloody and courageous days of our nation’s history, two armies fought for two conflicting dreams.” But after reading the book, one would realize that every single soldier on either side for their own personal reasons, that may not have had anything to do with the war. The individual reasons were numerous, but three main ones stuck out. In The Killer Angels by Michael Shaara, the three reasons that men fought were homeland, ideal, and glory. Robert E. Lee, the commander of the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia during the Battle of Gettysburg, fought the bloody battle for his homeland.
Three-time Olympic champion Gail Devers once said, “Sometimes we fall, sometimes we stumble, but we can’t stay down. We can’t allow life to beat us down. Everything happens for a reason, and it builds character in us, and it tells us what we are about and how strong we really are when we didn’t think we could be that strong.” In the biography Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand, Devers ' words illustrate the sturdy determination of Louis Zamperini, which carried him through everything from his track career and time as a prisoner of war in Japan, to his life after World War II had ended. In all, Louie’s unfailing willpower to continue through life’s hardships outshone all other traits throughout his haunting story. When Louie’s story began, he was
He pressed for his children’s freedom up to his dying breath, even though he was not victorious in freeing his grandchildren, after his death, his children were finally granted their freedom (186-187) After thirty years of enslaved labor, Ibrahima encountered Marschalk, who believed Ibrahima was of royal descent, a Moor (pg. 89). This confusion was the reason why Ibrahima was allowed back to his homeland. Because of the false letters Marschalk sent to President John Quincy Adams, it changed the results of the elections of 1828. This brought Ibrahima’s departure quicker and assisted him on gaining large publicity to acquire the money needed to free his family from
Alexander did not focus only in the money he’s dad gave him but he was interested in all the teachings as he said “I am indebted to my father for living, but to my teacher for living well.” Alexander was one of the greatest military leaders that existed.

This passage appears after a time when Odysseus has undergone a significant amount of hardship. Odysseus’s journey begins during the Trojan War, where he is a warrior and a general throughout all ten years of the conflict. Odysseus possesses normal physical attributes, however his superior intelligence allows him to contribute greatly towards the Greek’s victory. Despite his success, the loss of many of his friends due to the continuous violence as well as the general discomfort associated with war certainly would be challenging for any man. In addition, Odysseus is a king and had given up a life of peace and pleasure back home.
William Jennings Bryan was a man that strongly believed in his faith and made sure to use it throughout his life and legacy. “Only Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson had a greater impact on politics and political culture during the era of reform that began in the mid-1890s and lasted until the early 1920s”. This thesis begins the book and begins William Jennings Bryan’s legacy in the United States. Even though he ran for presidency three times he still gained popularity among the country. He was famous for his radical ideas and his eloquent speeches.
George Washington is indeed one of the best presidents our country has ever had. The citizen's adoration for him was endless, and his achievements and history still lives on today in our books and part of our education system. Washington did not start out to be a president, "He believed so strongly in that (running 2 terms only) concept that he refused to run for a third term." (Paragraph 3, Father of Our Nation), before his presidency, he was a general who fought at the front line of most battles. With such incredulous leadership skills, this lead him to becoming the well known Commander in Chief of the American Army.
Many people seem to think that Bernie Sanders won’t be able to make America great again; however, he has been in public office for more than 30 years. He has seen some of the greatest down falls that America has been through. He knows his facts and he knows his country. Not anyone can really say that he doesn’t know what he is doing, because he surely does. Bernie wants every American that there is to stand together with him, so that he can fight for the support of free health care, free college tuition, and getting our middle class Americans out of
Andrew Jackson was a good man since he won people 's heart by winning wars and by being one of the best president of the United States. He did so much for the people that they wanted him as president again in 1832. One good letter he wrote to congress was about a law. The law was about all men working for four years and that no man has the right to government a job. Meaning that no one has the right to own a job because they’ll only get four years into working.

Over the seventy-four years of his life, Bernie Sanders has gained the appropriate knowledge to lead our country,
Joe’s rough start and the struggle he went through in his early years makes winning the Olympic gold medal in 1936 more meaningful and inspiring than it might have been otherwise. As a child of only 10 years, Joe faced many difficult hardships he thought would never end. From his mother dying, to being kicked out of his only home and being abandoned by his own father, he was very persistent to get what he wanted in life and to get where he wanted to be in life as well, which ultimately in exchange, led him and his meritable teammates to winning the Olympic gold medal. I find this story extraordinarily ironic due to the fact that Joe took himself and what he had, which was nothing, and made it and himself into something. All of the many difficult obstacles he faced and overcome makes it extremely difficult to believe that he had as much optimism as he did growing up
Many children dream of growing up to be the president one day. Few do, and even fewer are remembered by everyone for what they did while being president. Three of these few are Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson. These are some of the greatest and strongest presidents of all time, but Thomas Jefferson was the strongest and smartest president because he was present and played a big part in government before the revolution, he played a huge role in the expedition of Lewis and Clark, and he had a huge impact on almost every aspect of society. Thomas Jefferson played a fairly big role in the American Revolution, and so did George Washington, but Abraham Lincoln wasn 't even alive.
