Persuasive Hero Speech

This is a speech given by a man in his speech class about heroes.

He starts with a great attention grabber, wearing a cape and huge symbol on the front of his chest. He speaks on the way that we all think about heroes. That they are all super, and that they have powers that can save the day. He toys with the notion that his audience already knows about these heroes and has already formed opinions on them.

About halfway through the speech he changes; he no longer wears the cape nor says that he is super. He presses his audience to be an everyday hero to someone that is in need. He shows us through the physical removing of his cape that heroes are just like us on the inside behind the outfit.

It's a very effective speech and very motivating to go out in the worldjust be a good person for all society.
