2. How do seminal U.S. documents reflect the foundations of the American society
U.S. seminal documents reflect the beliefs of the people because it shows a pivotal moment in history where the people come together as one to contrive a better nation through indomitability.
In the sentence that states " [r]ejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation" (Kennedy 44) shows indomitability in JFK's speech. Dr. MLK shows indomitability in the line that states " [n]ow is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation into the sunlit path of racial justice" ( King 496).
U.S. seminal documents reflect the foundation of American society by coming together to be one as a nation through equanimity.
In JFK's address equanimity shows in the sentence that states " [i]f a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich" (Kennedy 43). Another example of equanimity is exemplified in MLK's speech; sons of slaves and slave owners can get along (King 497).
