    “Freeze,” “Put your weapon down,” “Get down on your knees!” At the moment, my wrists were getting locked with silver bracelets. The red and blue lights on top of three cars blinked so brightly that a lot of people were staring at us as if we were animals in the cage at the zoo.

    All speech also need to end with a strong conclusion. The conclusion of a speech should not simply summarize the main points. Instead, use your conclusion to convince your audience to take action.
