Answer:

Good morning, everyone. Today, I'd like to discuss two pieces of literature that offer a powerful insight into the resilience of the human spirit required to transcend discrimination. They are Nelson Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, an autobiography of the great leader who fought against apartheid in South Africa, and The Trees, a poem by Adrienne Rich that depicts the struggle of trees to break free from the concrete walls that confine them.

Both these texts show how discrimination and oppression can stifle the natural growth and freedom of living beings , whether they are humans or trees. They also show how courage, determination, and hope can help overcome these challenges and achieve liberation and dignity. Both Mandela and the trees face tremendous hardships and sacrifices in their quest for justice and equality. They also inspire others to join them in their fight and create a better world for themselves and future generations.

To conclude, I'd like to say that these texts teach us valuable lessons about the resilience of the human spirit. They remind us that we should never give up on our dreams and rights, no matter how difficult the circumstances are. They also urge us to stand up against any form of discrimination and injustice that we witness or experience in our society. They also celebrate the beauty and diversity of life in all its forms. Thank you. 🙏

Step-by-Step explanation by Teachoo:

  •  The answer has three parts: an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. 🧩
  •  The introduction greets the audience, introduces the topic and the purpose of the speech, and gives a brief overview of the two texts that will be discussed. 🙋‍♂️
  •  The body  gives two paragraphs that explain the main points and examples that support the purpose of the speech. It also shows how the two texts are similar in their themes and messages. 📚
  •  The conclusion summarizes the main points and gives a personal opinion or a recommendation based on the discussion. It also thanks the audience for their attention and invites them to ask questions or give feedback. 🙏

The answer uses transition words to connect the sentences and make them flow smoothly. 💯
