Hey folks I don't know about you but I love a good spoken word or speech that really has a powerful well done message. I thought I would share a few I really enjoy. And encourage others to also share.

Severn Cullis-Suzuki at Rio Summit 1992

Charlie Chaplin "The Great Dictator" 1940

Carl Sagan "Pale Blue Dot"

Spencer Cathcart "The Lie We Live"

Prince EA "Dear Future Generations: Sorry"

There are of course many others, including some very famous ones that I have not posted. Feel free to add your favorites. I would love to see this thread filled with amazing spoken word and speeches so I can come back to it regularly and find something new to listen to or read. If it is in video please mebeded it, if it is text, either link to source or post it in full.
