"I was born on a potato farm, where I was raised to believe all men are created equal."
"And I never forgot that".

"I've seen with my own eyes the consequences of a caste system and making some people second class".



I dare you to watch this without shedding a tear.

1. Wow - great clip. Thanks for posting.
Anyone who is against gay marriage should watch this. If they don't feel shame they aren't human.

9. Now that's a Yankee Republican.
No nonsense and forthright even in his quavering eighty-something voice.
It was a pleasure listening to him.

13. Very moving clip. It seems so simple.
It's hard to understand how anyone could see it otherwise. Of course, I'm old enough to remember growing up in Memphis and asking why black people had to had to sit in a separate waiting room in our dentist's office.

20. I had to listen
very closely to my speakers so I could understand all of his words clearly, and fortunately I understood him. Simply beautiful and wholly poignant his words were. I would love to shake that man's hand. It truly warms my heart that there are men and women like him out there. I hope equality prevails in Maine. K&R :pals:

And to you, good Sir and all your sons: :patriot:
