Any speech that begins with the following is worth the time you give it:
“God of our weary years, God of our silent tears, … where we met thee, lest our hearts drunk with the wine of the world, we forget thee.”
Toward the middle of the speech, Dr. Joseph Lowery has this to say about our “choices on the side of love.” How can you disagree with that? Republican or Democrat…It’s beautiful.
“And now, Lord, in the complex arena of human relations, help us to make choices on the side of love, not hate; on the side of inclusion, not exclusion; tolerance, not intolerance.”
Here’s the full go at it…oh, the closing isn’t bad either – “When the Red Man can get ahead man…” So good…
