Anyway, in honor of today's 4th of July holiday, I wanted to post something patriotic and moving! I looked at several clips of groups singing the national anthem, scenes from the stirring musical 1776, and nothing seemed to grasp what I wanted to express today.
This is a clip very early in the series, where the men are just beginning to assemble the members of the Continental Congress that would compose and sign the Declaration of Independence. They asked Mr. Adams to give a speech that will inspire the crowd, and make the case for revolt. These are John Adams actual words. I DARE you not to get goose bumps when you hear the actor Paul Giamatti speak them now....
