A Great Speech

I have never heard Churchill’s speech; I have learnt about Swami Vivekananda’s address to the republic of religions, where he opened with ‘Brothers and Sisters of America’, which by itself had 2 minutes applause; I have learnt about John F Kennedy’s ‘And my fellow Americans, ask not what country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country, ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the Freedom of Man’; I have learnt from others how Gandhi and Hitler mesmerized audiences with their powerful speech.

But what I heard from Obama yesterday regarding race should be judged as one of the best. If time permits do hear it in youtube. The oratory, gestures, word choice, all where exemplary.

My vacation was really nice....just the break that i needed and i spent all the time with my family.

Thanks for the link and i too think that it is a great speech indeed....an honest and fearless addressing of an important issue. And he had the compassion while speaking....hope he wins and after winning turns out to be the same!
