First of all, I would like to say, hello Nerdfighteria, and happy First of April! (And no, this isn't a joke.)
For my intro to public speaking class, we have to write an epideictic speech. (for those of you who don't know what epideictic means, its pretty much just a ceremonial speech) So, I have decided that in lieu of writing a graduation or commencement speech, since I already wrote one for my high school graduation, I am going to compose a eulogy for a dead person. But whom should I write about? There are so many possibilities, and I want it to be great! I mean, school would be no fun if you didn't take SOME creative liberty with the assignments.
So far I was thinking historical person or musician, but I don't want to do a speech on someone who has had speeches written about them a million times already- lets give some recognition to those less-oft spoken of.
Any suggestions, comments, or info would help me out bundles! Thank you so much!
