Kennedy manages time by using two different rhetorical strategies it is when he states, “ We can do well in this country. We’ve had difficult times in the past, but we will have difficult times in the future.” Kennedy used this examine the emotions of his audience by conveying that peace and harmony is what they need. He uses congruent messages that could have been more poignant when stated, “I would only say that I can also feel in my heart the same kind of feeling. I had a member of my family killed, but he was killed by a white man.”
Robert Kennedy’s speech to the audience in Indianapolis was an approach to convince people to stop hating and to start coming together as a community without barriers between each other.
