Best Speech

We recently marked the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech. King’s speech is one of the most famous in human history.

There are many reasons why this speech stands out. For one thing, its message was sorely needed, with racial tensions at a boiling point. Secondly, it was delivered by an excellent orator. Third, it contained an unforgettable hook, that wonderful line that gives the speech its name.

Dr. King has become so associated with “I Have a Dream” that it is difficult to picture him without thinking about his most famous speech.

Here’s a thought. If people remembered you for the most memorable speech you ever delivered, what would that speech be? Would it be a good thing or a bad thing?

I suppose a lot of us hope that our best speech is still ahead of us!
