What is an example of a short speech on child labor?

Child Labour (Speech)

Good morning everyone. My objective today is to talk to you about child labour.

Do you know that of every 100 children in the world today, 16 of them are child labourers, 12 of them are in its worst form, and many will never go to school? There are 246 million child labourers in the world today, most are in developing countries. Some of them are as young as 5, 186 million of them are under 15 and 170 million of them are doing hazardous work and operating dangerous tools or machineries. They are working on farms, plantations, mines, or even construction site, breathing in noxious fumes and exposed to harsh chemicals or dangers. Of every 100 children, more than half will never finish school, escape poverty or even have a decent job. Let me begin by clearly explaining the meaning of the term "child labour". Child labour is the employment of children under an age determined by law or custom. This practice is considered exploitative by many countries and international organizations. Child labour was utilized to varying extents through most of history, but entered public dispute with the beginning of universal schooling, with changes in working conditions during industrialization, and with the emergence of the concepts of workers' and children's rights. So, how can we stop child labour? We can solve these problems by improving child labour legislation and laws and also by increasing the quality, relevance and access to education. Many countries have national child labour laws that establish a minimum age for work and regulate working conditions. However legal protection for child labourers is not effective to the kinds of work children are most involved in, such as agriculture and domestic service. In addition, labour laws in many countries do not cover factories employing less than ten people. It is, therefore, important to extend protection so that laws cover the main places where children work. Education is also a key to ending the exploitation of children. If an education system is to attract and retain children, its quality and relevance must be improved as well. Children who attend school are less likely to be involved in hazardous or exploitative work. They are also more likely to break out of cycles of poverty. The main obstacle to achieving universal primary education is only the inability and/or the unwillingness of governments to provide quality educational facilities for poor children in rural areas and in city shantytowns, because evidence from around the world has shown that poor families are willing to make sacrifices to send their children to school when it is economically and physically accessible. In conclusion, child labour should not happen as our greatest "natural resource" is the mind of the children. If child labour continues, the children will not be able to get a good education and our society cannot improve.

So, let's put our hand together to stop child labour.

Thank you.

Oratorical Declamation

How do you perform a declamation?

The first thing you need to do is find a Declamation piece to use. If you are referring to the Dec event in Speech and Debate you need to be certain the piece is published and has been previously performed publicly. Choose a piece that love. It can be funny, serious, but should always have a point.

If you have a time limit for your Declamation you might have to cut your piece to fit time. Be sure to trim the excess, never the necessary bits.

Part of what makes a successful Dec performance is analysis. Go through your script and mark it up. Underline, circle, note moments where a pause would work, where you should increase your pace--make notes of how you wish to perform it. Also, make notes of what the piece is saying. What does it mean? Look at diction; why use this word here? Further, look up any words you do not understand. This might seem tedious, but fully understanding your piece is the only way to present it properly.

As far as the actual speaking/performance goes, be sure to:


-be articulate

-use dynamics (loudness and softness and everything in between)

-variation of pace

-variation of pitch

-variation of tone

-variation of gestures (do not go over-board)

-make eye contact

-try not to stumble over words

-any movement should be done appropriately (move at the beginning of a point typically)

-do not fidget

Use your script to determine what to do vocally/physically. Again, analysis is essential to determine how to present.

Hope this is helpful! If you have any more questions, or want more details, please feel free to leave a message on my board, or check out the link on my bio page.

Do boys like lip piercings on girls?

It depends on the guy. Lip piercings can tend to get in the way of kissing too so a boy might find them annoying. If he has them then you could sort of guess that he wouldn't mind much (considering he also has them). It really depends on the guy and if you're curious if the guy you're interested in minds, ask him. Just be casual about it and ask if he likes piercings on girls or if he prefers a girl without piercings.

Who knows the declamation piece youths accountability to society?

Here it is. But I think it's incomplete,

Youth's Accountability to society

I am the youth, and certainly, I am the fair hope of my motherland.

In me lies the future of Philippines.

They say that I'm young, and because of my tender age, I'm not capable of doing a serious work. I'm given a lighter and lesser responsibility by the society.

Only the bit parts for me.

The big roles were assigned to adults who are supposedly older, stronger and wiser.

They say that I'm irresponsible and apathetic to the social and political turmoil around me.

My dear classmates, they are mistaken!

They see only the facade of this human structure called youth

Beneath this seemingly unperturbed countenance and I don't care!

Attitudes are a sensitive soul, an eager spirits waiting to be unleashed and a troubling heart full of hope, big breams, and burning ambitions.

That's the real me the youth. I have immense potentialities. My ambition will surely become reality if you help me develop my abilities.

Instead of confusing me, help me find the direction I must take so that I will be a wise young navigator sailing smoothly in the sea of life.

Stormy nights may come, but armed with encouragement from you

I will have enough guts and determination to sail towards the port of my goal and ambitions.

Let's not wait to be tapped, let us volunteer for community projects and other collective undertakings.

If we don't act know, who will do things for us? Who will plant trees that will sustain us? Who will rid of our environment so that we and our children will not suffer?

There are many ways by which we can share towards the progress of our goal and ambitions.

Can you give me a copy of heaven's grocery store declamation piece?

Heaven's Grocery Store

I was walking down life's highway a long time ago.

One day I saw a sign that read,"Heaven's Grocery Store".

As I got a little closer the door came open wide,

and when I came to myself I was standing inside.

I saw a host of Angels, they were standing everywhere.

One handed me a blanket and said, "My Child shop with care".

Everything a Christian needs is in that grocery store,

and all you can't carry, come back the next day for more

First, I got some Patience, Love was in the same row.

Further down was Understanding, needed everywhere you go.

I got a box or two of Wisdom, a bag or two of Faith,

I just couldn't miss the Holy Ghost, it was all over the place.

I stopped to get some Strength and Courage to help me run this race,

but then my blanket was getting full, and I remembered I needed Grace.

I didn't forget Salvation, which like the others was free,

so I tried to get enough of that to save both you and me.

Then I started to the counter to pay my grocery bill,

for I thought I had everything to do my master's will.

As I went up the aisle, I saw Prayer and had to put it in,

for I knew when I stepped outside, I would run right into sin.

Peace and Joy were plentiful, they were on the last shelf.

Song and Praises were hanging near, so I just helped myself.

Then I said to the Angel, "How much do I owe"?

The Angel smiled and said, "Just take them everywhere you go."

Again, I politely asked "How much do I really owe?"

The Angel smiled again and said,"My Child, Jesus Paid Your Bill

A Long Time Ago."

How do you receive land given to you in a will?

You receive title through the will. There is no conveyance, as title vests in the receiving heir(s) immediately upon decedent's death, subject to legal contingencies or conditions that may require disposal of the property to someone else during probate. Once the estate is settled, the contingent title becomes clear title. The lawyer handing the Estate (Will) should contact you. It can take up to a year or more for a Will to go through Probate (meaning: all challenges are defended, creditors are paid, all personal income tax is paid and all property taxes are paid off, and all priority gifts have been made.) If in doubt, try finding out who the lawyer is and contact him/her.

Can you give me an example of the declamation piece titled Alms Alms Alms?

The declamation piece, or soliloquy, beginning with "Alms, Alms, Alms. Spare me a piece of bread" is a popular choice for speech students or competitors. It is called "Vengeance is Not Ours, It's God's," and the text begins like this:

Alms, alms, alms. Spare me a piece of bread. Spare me your mercy.
I am a child so young, so thin, and so ragged.

Why are you staring at me?
With my eyes I cannot see but I know that you are all staring at me. Why are you whispering to one another? Why? Do you know my mother? Do you know my father? Did you know me five years ago?

Yes, five years of bitterness have passed. I can still remember the vast happiness mother and I shared with each other. We were very happy indeed.

Suddenly, five loud knocks were heard on the door and a deep silence ensued. Did the cruel Nippon's discover our peaceful home? Mother ran to Father's side pleading. "Please, Luis, hide in the cellar, there in the cellar where they cannot find you," I pulled my father's arm but he did not move. It seemed as though his feet were glued to the floor.

The door went "bang" and before us five ugly beasts came barging in. "Are you Captain Luis Santos?" roared the ugliest of them all. "Yes," said my father. "You are under arrest," said one of the beasts. They pulled father roughly away from us. Father was not given a chance to bid us goodbye.

We followed them mile after mile. We were hungry and thirsty. We saw group of Japanese eating. Oh, how our mouths watered seeing the delicious fruits they were eating...

Is there a short oratorical speech for friendship?

A beautiful friendship revolves around many important qualities. It's necessary ingredients are trust, sincerity, reliability, helpfulness and support. It is nearly impossible to share a good relation with an individual at the cost of the qualities.

There should be a consistency in these qualities even with the passage of time. Many a times, we happen to come across a few of these qualities, but during tough times, the person doesn't pass the test with flying colours. For example - Josh and Zack's friendship lasted for a span of eight years. Then a bit of misunderstanding happened as if destiny was testing their bond and they separated forever. The saddest part was that neither of them tried to reconcile and get back together.

"A friend is our mirror", as it is said right. So, the choice of a friend should be of utmost care. Let us not be swept off our feet only by one's physical appearance. Remember, God gave us our relatives, but thank God we can choose our friends..!! We can make our life through the right or the wrong choice of friends.

Paragraph Development

How do you write a paragraph on a specific topic?

If you already have a topic or main idea, all you have to do is start writing! WikiAnswers will not write your paragraph for you, but we WILL help you learn how to write one for yourself!
Start by making a list of ideas:
  • If your topic is something that you can look up - look up facts using a dictionary, an encyclopedia, or a search engine like google or dogpile - list each fact that you find
  • If your topic is an idea (like friendship or family) - write down everything you know about this idea - if you can't think of anything, then look it up just like the above!
  • If your topic is a statement or quote - make certain that you understand what the statement or quote means! Look it up if you have trouble, or ask the teacher to help you understand it better. Write down any facts you know about the statement, or write ideas that you have when you think about the statement
  • If your topic is to describe something - list everything you can think of - use all of your senses, not just sight
  • If your topic is to tell what happened during an event - list everything that happened in order, from beginning to end
  • If your topic is to give your opinion - give your opinion! List everything you think about the topic and why you believe that.

Next, make each line into a complete sentence. Check your grammar and punctuation to be sure they are correct.

Copy these sentences into a paragraph. Try putting them into different order to be sure that your paragraph makes sense and leads the reader from one idea to the next.

A piece of bread declamation piece?


(by Mrs. Wilma C. Aruelo)

It's been long years of sufferings and now I stood at the bar

of justice with my pale young face.

"Am I guilty or not guilty?" It's a question that always lingers on my mind.

"I will tell you just how it was. My father and mother were dead.

My little brothers and sisters were hungry and asked me for bread. At first I

earned the bread by working hard all day. But somehow, the times were

hard and the work fell all away. I could get no more work."

"That night, the weather was bitter cold and my little brothers and

sisters were crying, shivering and craving for food. My brother and I

hurriedly rushed and asked a piece of bread from the saleslady but she

pushed me, scolded me for I am nothing but jerk.

So, I got a piece of bread and we ran away but … Bang!

The gun went off and my brother fell dead.

"Dino, …no…,Dino, don't die.. here's a piece of bread ..

I got it for you and our sisters… Please don't die…hu.hu.hu…"

I dried my tears in a moment then looked at the judge's eyes.

"Am I guilty for stealing a piece of bread?"

"What about you? Are you not guilty for killing my innocent brother?

Everyone in the courtroom sprang theirs tears for they knew

that I spoke the truth. May God forgive me for stealing a piece of bread.
