This isn’t a sermon, but it could serve as a model for great public speaking. Here’s a gorgeous piece of work by the peerless Jon Meacham, beautifully eulogizing George H.W. Bush at Washington’s National Cathedral this morning.
Do we realize what we have lost — not just in our leaders but in our public rhetoric? No matter what your political leanings, it can’t be denied that this is a great eulogy, elegantly delivered.
Watch and listen to a master at work.
