This is what David Handschuh said to gain the audience’s attention when he was giving a speech about the 9/11 attack in New York. David Handsschuh was a photographer that was on his way to teach at a college in New York. He called his boss after listening to the radio, realizing what was happening to the twin towers. This speech was mainly, to entertain. I say this because it was so fascinating and most of the people in the audience were already alive and know some of the background on the 9/11 attack, so it would not be considered informative to me. Although, that can be very arguable depending on the person you ask. I went to this very interesting speech at the beginning of the semester with Samantha Huff. I did not realize how meaningful this speech would be to me when she first mentioned it to me. We were in Schoonover and there were many people waiting to hear this speech. When he came in, he set up everything that he needed online to show us his PowerPoint that he prepared for us. He had a microphone to make sure that everyone in the audience could hear him. He did very well on the speech, in general. But, three things that stuck out to me were his audience analysis, use of visual aids, and his choice of words.
