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 rough times.
To me the word freedom stands out, because even though he only uses this word 3 times, there is so much meaning being put into that word. "We observe today not a victory of party but a celebration of freedom--symbolizing an end as well as a beginning--signifying renewal as well as change." I think he was mainly just trying to get the attention of those causing hardships on other during that time. He was also trying to talk to the people of his nation. He definitely cares for a lot of people. He has much concern for his peolple and the young ones everywhere. I think that because he had kids of his own, he knew what hardships the young ones were going through also. JFK uses an allusion when he says "But we shall always hope to find them strongly supporting their own freedom—and to remember that, in the past, those who foolishly sought power by riding the back of the tiger ended up inside." I think...
