Noah Snyder Section 13 TA: Alex Ware 9/17/07 Speech Critique Overall I thought Montana Kellmer’s speech “Moving Forward” was excellent. He used a great hook telling about all of the events leading up to his tragic yet healing heart attack. His explanation of how his parents split up and the bitter struggles during the custody battle invoke a feeling of sympathy in the viewer of the speech. It must have been difficult talking about such a hard part of his life in public to people he barely knew. I could tell that from the emotion in his face that it was difficult to retell the story of how he smashed that one kid’s face in for talking about his mom negatively. Montana uses great flow in his speech and gives the audience of the speech great descriptions of how he was feeling at the time
