a more perfect union
There were some technical difficulties with the podcast of Ally's choice. So I decided to right my blog about the Barack Obama reading of " A More Perfect Union". Obama uses his emotion, personal experiences and language to describe a more perfect union with race. He uses his own race of being half black and half white as a great example to show diversity in this country. Obama faced adversity along the way from childhood to his presidency. He says that during his campaign that even race was an issue. commentators saying he wasn't "black enough", or "too black". Obama uses his emotion and personal experiences to become the man and president he is today, explaining the struggles he had as a child and the racism he saw and experienced. He continues to use language by explaining what makes us a perfect union is unity behind each other for terrorist attacks, a falling economy, health crisis, and problems that are either black, white, Latino, and Asian. Obama continues to explain how these people who surround him make him who he is today. The diversity of America in his eyes is something that people of all races can influence or change your life. Sorry for the inconvenience, tracs wouldn't let me open the podcast.
