Heather Fackelman September 12, 2007 Honors Seminar: 20 th Century Civilizations Honp-102-03 Kennedy’s Inaugural Address Kennedy’s inaugural address, though short, was one filled goals and expectations for his time in office. His skillful use of rhetoric inspired hope in the nation, and evoked a sense of unification throughout the country in a time that called for pulling together and pulling through worldly conflicts as one . In reading not only the basic content of his speech, but also the style in which he wrote it, one can easily deduce that Kennedy favored peace, not war, and when war was necessary, he preferred a sense of union over dissension. His logic was to reach out to his public and relate to each person by appealing to their sentiments, cultures, personal experiences, hopes, and dreams. Kennedy found a way to appeal to his entire audience, and in doing so already achieved a sense of union. Kennedy’s speech, at first, portrays him as an idealist of sorts, as he presents a list of ambitious goals for his term in office.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
