“Your body of work is yet to come”

Obama’s commencement address to Arizona State University in Tempe is really one of the best pieces of rhetoric in our modern times.

I really felt something stirring in my heart as I watched him deliver it masterfully, as he always does. Obama has delivered some of the best speeches of the 21st century and this is less than a year into his presidency! Here are the links below:

  1. Insightful.

    We all need to stand in the gap and intercede for our times and for God to place righteous and faithful men in government!

    Superb flow I thought, communication wise!

      Hey Val, you’re right indeed!
      I thought his speech was very well balanced – it presented a very realistic view of the present, yet in a very optimistic way that urges people to action to create a future. He also presented very conventional ‘build your nation, you have your part to play’ messages in a very individually empowering way. 🙂
      He is indeed a leader I would want to work hard for!
