I listened to Ronald Reagan’s speech, “Tear down This Wall”. He was a good speaker with a confident tone. He moved his head a lot; there was no talking with the hands as a lot of people do. His voice is strong and he delivers a strong point in which the crowd responded to very positively. I read the speech and listened to it, and I believe a written version of this message would not be as effective because you don’t get the body language and tone from the speech unless you are watching it. He wasn’t very expressive but stern and to the point, you could feel his words and see in his face that he cared about this.

Unformatted text preview: The speech was directed to Mikhail Gorbachev; who had a lot of power over his country. He was a communist leader who probably didn’t want to give any of his power up. I don’t know how much of President Reagan’s speech influenced the take down of the wall but I am sure it did have a part in it along with the United State’s presence there.

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
