Moon Speech by John F. Kennedy
Jackeline Del Arca 10A

...that we shall send to the moon, 240,000 miles away from the control station in Houston...
Rhetorical Question
But why, someday, the moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask why climb the highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? Why does Rice plays Texas?
We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard.
Because that challenge is one we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and others, too.
This fact tells us the exact distance between the moon and the control station in Houston, from where they would launch the rocket, which is 240,000 miles.
This is another fact telling us how big the rocket was going to be and also of what was it going to be build of.
John F. Kennedy uses this facts to amaze people on how incredible this project would be, using measures that are very big.
The persuasive appeal Logos was a great technique used to be able to persuade people to support the nasa mission to the moon, since it makes the topic seem very interesting and makes people willing to help with the project. The rhetorical questions make the audience think about all what they can reach and that nothing is impossible in life. The slogan leaves the listeners with a sense of pride and the desire to try new things in life. Finally, the parallelism emphasizes how usa is prepared to accept this new challenge, and convinces its citizens to support their country to rise above the other nations.
