JFK's inaugural address was very inspirational and these are just some important factors that I found to be interesting. His speech used strong words but they were very understandable. It would have been a joy to actually experience being there for this speech. JFK was trying to tell his listeners that he would try his best to bring peace to the country and that he would treat everyone equally. He says here: "The world is very different now. For man holds in his mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty and all forms of human life." World War ll had happened a little more than 20 years ago, John F. K. was probably alive through that time and did not want a war while he was president. JFK was more than likely not the person who wrote this speech, because presidents usually have somebody else who does that kind of stuff. Although he might have helped out and gave whomever wrote this some idea of what the speech should say. JFK however was the one who gave the speech. Because every new president who get elected should give an inaugural address. I have not actually been to any presidents inaugural addresses, mostly because I am not a political person and because I really don't care what they have to say. These presidents cannot really fix the problems of the state, the country or even the world. Asunder was a word that I haven't heard of before, but turns out it means exactly what I thought, to be separated into pieces. He mostly had the speech written in common words, not huege words that most people don't understand. He says "we" almost 30 times, I like this because he does not want his listeners to work throuhg these hard times on their own. He wants to be there helping them throuhg these rou... ... middle of paper ... ...ose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty." He was hoping to get the support of the nation. That the people in the audience were listening to him and agreed with what he had to say. The crowd cheered and applauded for him which usually means that they agree, so I would say that JFK got the response he was looking for. The people agreed with him. I agree with the fact that the foolish people who are "riding the tiger will end up inside". Because you should not toil with things that you have no right toiling with. Like the people who have the right to speak about what they want to speak about. This speech was one that has stood out among thousands of poeple. JFK made a very big impression on poeple who want to be free, and poeple who want to end poverty, and poeple who just wants this world to be equal at last. JFK was a very inspirational speaker.
