Persuasive Speech Analysis

Good Essays
Persuasive speeches have been the most challenging speeches in this class for me. The goal is to influence the belief of an audience, convincing them to choose a side. The first persuasive speech I done I was nervous for some odd reason. When it comes to informative speeches I can talk a lot, but it’s different with persuasive speeches. Gaining the attention of the audience enough to persuade them is the major key to a good persuasive speech. Speech 3 was the longest persuasive speech being four to six minutes and it seemed to be the longest. With persuasive speeches, you want to provide the audience with enough information so they’ll be able to choose a side, most likely the side you’re arguing for. My performance in speech 3 was better

    PTSD or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is a psychiatric disorder that can occur following the experience or witnessing of life-threatening events such as the military combat, natural disasters, terrorism incidents, or any major tragedy. This is common in the life of veterans and is the leading cause of suicide among veterans. A VA patient who survived in Baghdad shares his experience with PTSD and explains how he knew he had this disability. Many veterans speak out about this issue and describe their continuous anger, alcohol addiction, and constantly wanted to fight. They usually feel very isolated and distant from their loved ones. One patient states, “PTSD involves rocketing into extreme states of stress re-activity; in the form of terror, rage, and uncontrollable impulses, and plunging into equally extreme states of being shut-down—exhaustion, emotional numbing, despair, and dissociation”. PTSD is about having fear and anxiety, allowing veterans to rage with anger and different emotion. There are many factors to PTSD, which affects others in different ways; or example, using video games to keep them occupied, spending money due to the lack of impulse control because of changes in their brain, and even not obtaining another job.…

    My fellow Athenians, allow me to refresh your memory on the horrific events of the last thirty years. First, war with the Spartans, who razed our fields of grapes and olives, who killed anyone outside of our walls. Next a disease that crawled its way past our protective barrier and into our people. Relatives and friends laid dead in the streets, piled on top of each other, unburied because of the fear of the contagious plague. Another 30,000 people no longer with us. After that we had a short period of peace that was interrupted when our democracy decided to seek after a silly war in Sicily. Of the 40,000 allied troops we sent to fight there, only seven thousand returned. Still more of our people were killed when we again confronted Sparta.…

    Life throws a great number of curveballs at me; sometimes it feels like someone is just waiting out there to get me. Nearly every poor, awkward, dangerous, or unfriendly situation is directly caused by decisions that I make, just as good moments get attributed to making intelligent choices. But, sometimes there is someone waiting just around that corner, waiting to strike. The setting is Nelson B.C. circa 2008, in the middle of December; there for the Heritage Classic hockey tourney, where we are favored to win for the second straight year. One of my good friends and teammates, Dazzo, are about to fall into one of the worst roasts in history.…
