Writing a speech is a lot different from writing a story, song, or a poem. A speech's main purpose is to convey an idea you believe in and make it appeal to the general audience; or at least that's my own perspective of it. Besides that, long story short, we have an assignment in school where each student in our humanities class is required to write-up a page and a half long speech that focuses on a world problem. To keep it somewhat simple I went with bullying considering I already knew a lot about it (not from personal experience), and that it's a very relevant topic given I'm in high school where a lot of bullying takes place. In other words I felt that by writing a speech on bullying I could also use it to try to help out some students I know are struggling. Anyways, the reason I'm coming to you with this problem is, because I could really use some pointers on how I should go about writing this speech. I want it to really stand-out. Obviously I've already taken into account researching other great public speakers such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Adolf Hitler (sure he was evil, but you can't ignore the fact he was still a powerful public speaker). However, I still feel you guys on here can provide some help as well. TL;DR: Got any good tips on writing a speech?
