Bryan McCarthy 3/25/08 Topic Proposal The general topic I will speak on in my text analysis speech is the American University commencement speech given by John F. Kennedy in 1963.

    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.
