Former First Lady, Michelle Obama speaks at the Democratic National Convention about who she thinks should be the new President of the United States, and why.
When analyzing speeches, it is a good idea to put them into a pentagram, as it helps to create an overview.
The first thing you look at is the speaker. The speaker is Michelle Obama. Michelle Obama is a former first lady and is a well-known speaker at the Democratic National Convention.
For example, when she talks about how children feel:
"But right now, kids in this country are seeing what happens when we stop requiring empathy of one another. They’re looking around wondering if we’ve been lying to them this whole time about who we are and what we truly value”.
Everyone has been children once and many have or plan to have children and therefore it is a topic many people have an opinion about which makes it very relatable.
There has been a lot of focus on Black Lives Matter, so by bringing up the topic up and talking about it, again she is using pathos.
