Dorothy's Speech Analysis

Decent Essays
The Cold War in the 1950’s saw New York citizens taking part in training sessions to learn how to defend themselves if there was a state nuclear attack. This encouraged Dorothy to protest to the objection to the USA's dependence on weapons. This saw her being prisoned for 5 days in 1956 and a further 30 days in 1957. Following this in 1965 the Catholic Church began to comprehend pacifist ideas and morals, recognising the fact that the discrimination towards people was a crime against humanity. Her last speech was at the Eucharistic Congress in Philadelphia on 6 August 1976, where she spoke about her love of God, and the importance of taking that love to all creation. Dorothy lead a life of revolution of attitudes and personal responsibility.
