My 2nd speech is one themed “Be In Earnest” wherein I speak non-offensively about something I have extended knowledge and opinions on. Uh huh.
From the instructions:
Choose a subject of current interest on which you have definite convictions. The world is full of controversial subjects, and you certainly have strong feelings about some of them. Your topic could be anything from taxes to street cleaning, arms control to barking dogs. Just be sure that you have a definite point of view, and then prepare a protest, appeal, or call for action that promotes your viewpoint.
We also received an email from the group leader today that asked us to pick a non-offensive subject, and remain respectful. I can do respectful – but non-offensive? I’m doing this class with a bunch of very conservative people. Any current issues I may have strong convictions about likely run counter to anything that anyone in the room would be comfortable with. Anyone have any ideas?
