    Pericles on the other hand was speaking after a war had ended at a ceremony held for the dead and he was chosen to speak. He did more of a eulogy whereas Lincoln was an address of the war that was still occurring. I didn't like the fact that though Lincoln was dedicating a monument to the ones who have died he did not mention the families of the lost ones. Pericles does. As a matter of fact

    During speech class this semester, I gave several different types of speeches on several different topics. During this semester, my ability to give speeches in front of an audience has improved quite a bit, I hope.

I think the thing I did best during the semester was getting good information for each of my speeches. My favorite assignment was most

    Worlds apart in terms of length and many other characteristics both Pericles's Funeral Oration, and Lincoln's Gettysburg Address share their similarities. Both nations are Democratic, and both speakers are very proud of that fact, mentioning it in both speeches. Something I noticed was the mentioning of religion. Lincoln mentioned God in his speech, yet Pericles did not mention anything about religion, he kept it purely political. While Pericles had a lengthier speech, Lincoln's speech was short

    I will be honest, the first class of COMM 1000 scared me, especially when Professor McCain began to list the numerous and lengthy speeches we would be presenting throughout the quarter. It was not even the public-speaking portion that scared me, rather it was the numerous time limits, use of only speaking notes, and short amount of time in between the speeches. However, I ended up making it through the quarter, especially with a high grade. Before attending California State University, East Bay,

    When my Grandmother passed away, I thought about it long and hard. I thought about how I could somehow do something to make her life here on Earth a tribute from the ones whom loved her, and the ones that she had touched. This eulogy written for Corolie Feagin Davis, was not only written as a means to be closure of her life here on Earth, but to celebrate her crossing over into a much better place. That place, which she has spoken to me and others about on several occasions, is where she has been

    Why I chose a eulogy? Why chose a eulogy for a fictional character like Antonio? Antonio was seen differently by his friends, Shylock and the readers. To some, he was a man who was caring, kind, and would do anything to help his friends. To Shylock, Antonio is a man he despised, because he is treated unpleasant, all because he is a Jew. In the readers eyes, he is viewed as a villain in the beginning of the story and later as the victim of Shylock's revenge for the way Antonio had treated him. Most

    when I was six. We held a funeral at the local church, but since she passed away in Korea, my family was not able to bring her body. I remember my mother delivering her eulogy, but she was struggling to carry on as she was breaking down with tears rushing down her face. However, she looked at me and stopped crying – finishing the eulogy. I was too young and naïve to understand why she was mourning; instead, I pouted and I dreaded that entire funeral, oblivious to the circumstances I was in. I did not
