Gettysburg Address Analysis

Applying five motives

What I find most interesting about the Gettysburg Address is the theme of birth along with the contrast of death. The beginning implies the birth of a new nation. “Conceived in liberty” is the start of the nation in the past. Now is currently contemplating if the liberties still exist by stating “any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure”. The very next sentence ties this together stating,” We are met on the great battlefield of that war.” The next sentence brings the focus to death with the words “Final resting place” and “gave their lives” and at the end of that very sentence stresses the word live stating “that that nation might live”. The next sentence repeats “can not” three times in the one sentence. The next sentence has life and death in the same sentence. This sentence contrast “living and dead” and also contrast “add or detract”. The next sentence takes a pause by using words “long remember” “never forget”. After the sentence that pauses, brings me to want to move forward by the use of the word “living”. This sentence also implies can do three times by using the adverbs “for us”, “to be”, and “here to”. The end of this sentence punctuates “us the living” at the beginning stating “nobly advanced”. The last sentence ties together that the honored dead should not have died in vain contrasted with how they won’t die in vain as a birth of a new nation, “a new birth of freedom”.

“post your analysis of which repetition, strand, or binary is most important for understanding what it is you are observing.”

The most important in my analysis

Binary: 1. living and the dead, 2. far above/poor power, 3. add/detract

Repetition:” We can not” repeated 3 times. People repeated 3 times

Strand: the most important strand is the first one ” gave their lives that that nation might live” this strand includes repetition with” that that” and also the lives/live and binary “gave their lives” meaning dead vs. “live” this first strand is genius in my eyes.

Last sentence is a string of strands with three of them starting with the word that.

This whole speech is pure genius, I could probably write a 5 page paper on this one speech.

Yes, I see that also that the President includes everyone in using we the people, living and dead, past and present. He unites everybody and then wants everyone to remember this war to never repeat this to always move forward reaching for a better tomorrow. We can by remembering this past become better in the future.

  8. “Also, many missionary children resent some time they spend away from their parents, and they resent the mission operate that took their parents away from them. New Tribes has often been aware of the and has been sensitive to their families.” NOT TRUE. NTM has not generally been sensitive to this! Were it not for the brave Fanda kids who put it out there NTM would still be covering up the horrendous pain and damage done to children at their boarding schools. Breaking friends and family ties is not a christian value. Seeing your parents to get a bit of respite for the parents to obtain away from the rigors of language learning or whatever is not called raising your child. Kids were second, even third, on the list of important things in the NTM I lived under.
