Speeches are important. Churchill’s stirring words helped Britain get through some of the darkest days in its history.
One only has to hear Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream.“, to evoke a powerful moment in time.
Sometimes the best words are spoken with courage, after a terrible tragedy such as
Rosie Batty’s words after her young son had been publicly murdered, by her former partner..
In a totally different context, today the most powerful words once again came from a grieving mother.
I don’t want her death to be a focus for more hatred. I want her death to be a rallying cry for justice and equality and fairness and compassion. I’m very sorry that [Fields] chose that path because he has now ruined his life as well as robbed a great many of us of someone we love very much.
