American Rhetoric: Movie Speech

"Little Pink House" (2017)

 

Susette Kelo Addresses Supporters Following USSC Decision on Eminent Domain

 

Thank you. I'm -- I see so many faces I know.

Thank you all for fighting so hard.

 

This isn't about us keeping our homes anymore.

It's about people's property rights all over the United States.

 

There is no amount of money that could replace our homes.

Or our memories.

And we will fight.

I know that.

Because we won't quit now.

 

This decision was so close.

We finally shed some light on what happened here.

This is where we chose to settle and this is where we want to stay.

This is America, the home of the free, isn't it?!
 

[Audience Members Chanting]
Hands off our homes!
Hands off our homes!
