Speech On Stand Analysis

Improved Essays
Stand Lyrics are words that stick in your head and keep replaying. What happens is these lyrics turn into messages. You may hear, “Alone and helpless like you’ve lost your fight, but you’ll be alright.” These words can describe a minimum of one day in everyone’s life. You have to take life for what it is; make the best of what is given to you and stand. You may think that this has nothing to do with agriculture, but it has everything to do with it. My grandfather, W.E. Butler…Buck Butler…and to me, Pawpaw, never gave up. He was a Texas Animal Health Commission Agent, rancher, and later, the proud owner of two successful cattle auction barns in Nixon and Beeville.
