Rued informed the Aboriginal community and the Parliament of his intentions to equalize the opportunities for all, no matter of the color of their skin. Kevin Rued utilizes phonetic structures such as emphatic stress when speaks about the future Of Australians. When he says “A future where we can harness the determination of all Australians, indigenous and non- indigenous, to close the gap that lies between us in life expectancy, educational achievement and economic opportunity. ” Rued emphases the “all” so the indigenous communities feel like they are included within the
Australian nation. Rued also uses repetition, when he mentions all of the apologies on behalf of Australia, “We apologies for the laws and policies of successive parliaments and governments that have inflicted profound grief, suffering and loss on these our fellow Australians. We apologies especially for the removal of Aboriginal and Tortes Strait Islander children from their families, their communities and their country. ” Rued continuously says ‘Wave apologies” so he makes sure his message is successfully conveyed.
The season why I chose the Kevin Rudder’s Apology Speech was because the “Stolen Generation” was a dark part in Australia’s history’, Rudder’s speech was a very important but long overdue apology to the members of the Stolen Generations and their families. I am glad that it was made, and I felt quite moved analyzing it. However it does not go far enough. The speech didn’t bring the children home to their families and a whole part of the generation are not alive. The speech should have happened years ago but it was an extremely moving apology.
