    In 1961, John F. Kennedy took the podium after being sworn in as the 35th president of the United States. People gathered around, despite the bitter cold, in hopes of hearing reassurance from their new national leader.

One of the most notable devices used in Kennedy’s speech was simply the way it sounded. He focused not on how it appeared on paper, but how it sounded when read aloud.

He was well spoken throughout and kept a good pace throughout his speech.…

Jack soon obsesses himself with hunting and devotes…
