To all slave owners and supporters I stand here today to talk about the harsh and cruel ways of slavery and how it negatively affects people all around the country both black and white And to hopefully teach every single one of you how terrible it really is and that behind the color of our skin we are all the sameImagine waking up every single day wishing you were dead I often found myself regretting my own existence and wishing myself dead and but for the hope of being free I have no doubt but that I should have killed myself or done something for which I shouldve been killed Douglass 65 Being a slave is the worst possible thing that could happen to a man even worse then being dead There were times throughout my enslavement where I told myself that being dead would have been so much better I could have ended my suffering Not a single day went by where this terrible thought didnt go through my headThus is slavery the enemy of both the slave and the slave holder Douglass 31 Slavery is not only a terrible thing for the slaves but it is also terrible for the owners It turns peoples morals upside down Slave owners learn to think that there is no wrong is beating people and forcing them to do work by their own will Is that what you want your life to be like Do you want to be a cold-hearted terrible person Because that is what slavery is doing to everyone It is forcing so many people to commit these appalling acts that are completely inhumane and they think that it is okay They do not see how brutal and terrible these things really are We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal Not only is slavery morally wrong but also it goes against the United States Declaration of Independence
