This year my speech was about trust and how we need to be able to trust each other more.
I was learning to use language devices ( for example) rhetorical questions, power of three, simple sentences and more.
Speech writing was really hard on me this year because at the start of writing I didn't know but then near the middle it was a bit easier but then when I got near the end it became a lot harder.
I can use one part of the speech structure (rhetorical questions).
I had Many ideas connected to my point of view.
I used several language devices to persuade and connect with the audience.

Do you trust me? If so why? And if not, also, why?
Ok so if you don't trust me, you might want to reconsider that statement of yours. Do you trust me to walk your dog, or do you trust me to babysit your younger sibling, or do you trust me that I trust you? We need more trust in the world. It's time we start trusting each other more.
People are always watching us. on cameras. but we don't know who those people are. so I have a complaint, we have no privacy. And remember they are always watching us.
Imagine that you were sitting at a desk watching a screen looking at everyone in the convenience store. But then you see someone steal a 2. Litre carton of milk what do you do? Do you sprint for it and try catch them or would you just let them stroll along and steal the nice, cold, refreshing drink.
You see it's reasons like this that we need to build up a better community. But watching them is not the answer. But still people also need to stop stealing. Maybe if jobs pay people a bit more, we would be able to trust others more, and wouldn't have to film them to catch them stealing.
Connecting to that idea, we need more trust in the government. They don't trust us not to steal or not to knock thing of shelves or it to start fights. Think about it if the governments put up security cameras around malls, shops, museums and more doesn't that mean that he doesn't trust our community and if the government doesn't trust us then we start to lose faith and trust in the government.
The government has been lying to us a lot. they said that The vast majority of the buildings in Christchurch came through and survived the earthquakes in good shape. But actually around 30 to 50 percent of the city was destroyed because of this natural disaster. # lie detector activated!
That makes me feel a bit edgy and not trust the government.
We need more trust in the world.
Because can you really trust me I'm not sure, it's your Decision. But remember if you see cameras watching you don't worry about it, or you if you think that a certain someone lying to you, think about it from another perspective. And finally remember to always be trustworthy and don't be that untrustworthy uncle that shows up with a new wife every New Years.
