    Hindus, which translated to “The world is sound”. Julian then goes on to mention a statistic on how everything around us is vibrating. I think this is a good hook in the way it grabs the viewer’s attention and gives a clear explanation on what the speaker is going to talk about. 25.

People on the surface can be so confident and secure in their own skin when in the public's view, but once they get to the seclusion of their own home they can portray a much different side to their personality. "Richard Cory" by Edwin Arlington Robinson is the story of a very wealthy man who kills…
