That post started my speculation about the great speeches of my time. In a comment on Daddy's Roses Isuggested that five speeches would have to be included in any list of great twentieth century speeches:
- I Have a Dream by MLK
- "Nothing to fear but fear itself" by FDR
- "Day of Infamy" by FDR
- "Blood, Sweat, Toil, & Tears" by Winston Churchill
- The Inaugural Address by JFK
What do you think? Is there someone you would add? Or remove? Here's the list.
By the way, one speech, that didn't make the list, actually saved the life of one of our presidents. Can anybody explain that?
