Words matter; words can change the world

I just read to a class of fifth graders. My choice of reading materials: St. Crispen Day’s speech from Henry V, an excerpt of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s I Have a Dream exhortation of 1963 and part of Winston Churchill’s Never Surrender radio address from 1940. The message of my talk. Words matter. Words can help change the world. MLK’s I Have a Dream speechhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEMXaTktUfALaurence Olivier’s performance of St. Crispen’s speechhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9fa3HFR02EChurchill’s radio addresshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6llT2ZYg-4E http://amplify.com/u/ik49
