Everyone wants to become successful in the future, right? When you were younger, you were always asked, “What do you want become when you grow up?” Some said a princess, rich, a singer, a fashion designer and even to fly! (Literally). But as we are growing up, that question will be asked again. Yet this time seriously. Some said a doctor, an MP, an architect, etc. But in order to achieve this, you must work hard for it. Many people dream but don’t believe, whilst believers are dreaming even bigger.
When I was younger, I’ve always had a fairy-tale like dream about my future. To marry my prince, have a fairy Godmother, be a princess… But now, all of that has changed. I’ve realised how hard life is now; that life cannot be like a fairy-tale. What you want can’t happen just like that. I want something more realistic, practical and down to Earth. I can’t put faith in my fairy Godmother; I have to work for my goals.
Magic isn’t going to help everything. Hope is something everyone needs.
As I have mentioned earlier, everyone wants to become successful in the future. I do also; I want to go University, yet I haven’t decided what for so far. I want to grow up and make my Parents proud, especially when my Dad’s up there watching over me. I want to be happy. But every step I take, has the potential of changing my entire path, where my life is leading.
So I must live life to the full, no matter what. Hope is something everyone needs.
My list of Hope and Dreams can go on forever, but one ‘Hope’ I find significant is: ‘Hoping there will be a day when Cancer, is just a Zodiac sign.’ Cancer continues to be a major disease in many countries. The numbers of those dying from Cancer in the world are increasing. It is estimated that 7.2 to 7.5 million people worldwide die from Cancer each year. Some people in this room may know someone who has either died from Cancer or has Cancer. I pray for those who are fighting through such a tough battle, to never give up and live your Hopes and Dreams.
Hope is something everyone needs.
Nelson Mandela gave a speech at his inauguration as president of the Democratic Republic of South Africa on May 10, 1994. His speech is named “Glory and Hope”, which hints at the content of it. In “Glory and Hope”, Nelson Mandela expresses his gratitude towards those who had aided them thus far and reminds everybody of the hardships they suffered, their successes, and their goals for the future. Mandela also tries to communicate the message that cooperation had brought them hope and to their glory and hopes to continue to do so. He conveys his appreciation and message through his word choice, tone, sentence structure, and use of rhetorical devices. Nelson Mandela’s word choice helps him convey his gratitude towards the audience and message that they must continue to work together to build and better society. He begins by addressing his audience with “Your Majesties, Your Highnesses, Distinguished Guests, Comrades and Friends”. His audience comprised kings, queens, important government officials, and so on.
However, through his word choice, Mandela is able to bring a sense of belonging and togetherness, regardless of their race, age, gender, and position. He uses words like “compatriots”, “we”, and “us”, making the audience feel and realize that they are all human beings and therefore equals in such a sense. Mandela uses tone and sentence structure to communicate his main message and express how thankful he is. His tone is appreciative, formal, hopeful, and passionate. Mandela constantly expresses his thanks to those who aided them. Near the end of the speech, he is also hopeful and passionate about their newfound freedom, equality, and democratic government. Mandela says “We are both humbled and elevated by the honour and privilege that you, the people of South Africa, have bestowed on us, as the first President of a united, democratic, non-racial and non-sexist South Africa, to lead our country of the valley of darkness.”
While Mandela’s tone is appreciative, hopeful, and passionate, he is also able to keep his speech formal. In addition to tone, Mandela’s sentence structure contributes to both tone and conveying his message. He uses lengthy sentences with occasional short and clipped sentences to emphasize a certain point. Mandela says “The time for the healing of wounds has come. The moment to bridge the chasms that divide us has come. The time to build is upon us.”
