In our lifetime a lot of unusual things will happen, some good and some bad. My speech in particular is about one of the bad things that has happened in our parents, maybe even grandparents lifetimes. This case is frightening and disturbing, but the most shocking part is how he doesn’t remember what he did or how he did it. All he remembers is being taken into custody and an abnormal loss of teeth. My information is from “my life among the serial killers”, written by Helen Morrison, an interview from CBS news, and an article written by one of the detectives assigned to the case. In “my life among the serial killers”, Morrison tells about her time hypnotizing “Baby faced” Richard Macek and the horrifying story of what he did.
Anna Quindlen’s commencement speech at Mount Holyoke College is an inspiring monologue about marching to the beat of your own drum. She is trying to make people rethink the whole way that they have been living and realizing all the times that they chose to be “normal” instead of taking their own path through life. Quindlen uses everything in her power to appeal to everyone who could be listening giving many examples and scenarios explaining different situations where individuality could have occurred. Throughout the whole speech Quindlen talks about how being perfect is what we all strive for, yet no matter how hard we try it can never be accomplished.
Every graduate has been pampered and told he is special, and he is, but so is everybody else. It is important to have self-esteem when you enter the real life of adulthood, but it is also crucial for young people to humility and appreciation of others. What you have been told is true, you are special, but other people are special to and you ought to acknowledge that. You should try to give back and take care of others and do things because they have value, not because they will add value to the way the world views you from the outside.
In class we were shown a recording of the speech, “A call to men”. The first thing I noticed was the title, which made me immediately assume it was going to be a female speaker that was going to speak about feminism; or something along those lines. To see a man giving the speech grabbed my attention instantly. The man giving the speech was Tony Porter, and his audience was mostly women, who made me think, “Is this guy going to be giving a speech about feminism?” While listening to his speech I felt guilty for being quick to judge, because his speech was actually about growing up as a male, and being masculine is today’s society. While Tony Porter was giving his speech, he brought up stories that without a doubt every guy in our class could relate to that left many of us saying, “Wow”.

Through manipulating the power of rhetorical devices in anthology of speeches, orators accentuate the significance of language and learning as a platform for prompting an abiding social change. Hence, an effective speech highlights composer's contextual issues and ideas that resonates within their immediate audience, envisaging a social equity. Lessing's On Not Winning the Nobel Prize, delivered at the Nobel Lecture in 2007, explores the power of language to fuel radical social reform in Zimbabwe, through the representation of educational inequality. Similarly, Keating's Redfern Speech empowers hope within Australian's social progress by accentuating the importance of learning and acknowledging of our past colonial mistake. Both speeches share
Robert Gray most definitely provokes thought and stirs emotion through an effective use of language and techniques used in his poems. One of his major messages are those connected with mans effect on the environment and our constant need to create something new and yet, forget about what we already have and where that ends up. Also the sense of our society almost becoming, un-Australian and very international.

Patrick Henry was a prominent lawyer, politician, and orator in colonial America, representing Hanover County, Virginia in the Second Virginia Convention and Virginia in the Second Continental Congress (history.org).

In Patrick henry’s speech at the second Virginia convention on march 23rd 1775 he powerfully assert that the British are about to change their way of life, and that they need to take steps to prevent them from destroying their newly founded country. Patrick Henry becomes a very unsuspecting leader in order to save his country from the impending doom of the British invasion. but in order to become a leader must one always risk life or limb.? or must they lead troops into battle? A leader should be able to know what is best for his people. Patrick henry never stepped foot on a battlefield, nor did he lead troops into battle. He was just an intellectual that saw a danger and he addressed it.
“Resolved, that these united colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent states,” stated in the Independence resolution. For over more than one decade, people from all over the world have striven to see the nation come as one, and rather not see it drift apart from each other and hate one another. Patrick Henry’s speech has incensed violence and fights the British which not everything should be about war; one way to fix these issues of revolution is by having more peace and love among nations and states. Opposing to the speech, that violence is never the answer; however, Patrick states, “-we must fight, pg.1.”
