I want to share some great speeches that have inspired and moved myself and millions of others throughout the centuries. The power of the word is immeasurable; the power of the word delivered by a great and passionate orator can be life changing. It has been said, “ It is not what you say it’s how you say it”. There is truth to that statement but when you combine great words in a time of need with an individual with passion and commitment in his or her soul, again it can change the world.
There have been so many great speeches that have impacted our world it is hard to boil them down to five or ten but here are some of my favorites. Please share in the comment section of this blog yours and why you like them.
