Speeches That Changed the World

Since we use Sonlight the last thing we really need to do is supplement.  But, it seems I just can’t resist adding a few good things I find on my own!  A couple of weeks ago I found this neat book and CD combo that I just had to bring home for my soon to be 14 year old.  The book includes the transcripts of over 50 speeches going all the way back to Jesus sermon on the mount! The CD includes a collection actual recordings from Winston Churchill through George W. Bush. 

I think this will be fun for my freshman to pop in the CD player each day and listen to a bit of history come alive. I realized when I bought this that there was a good chance we could find all of these online for free.  (I only paid $10.00 for the set, so I thought it would be worth it to have the convenience of the CD to just pop in.) You know I couldn’t resist looking for FREE speeches online!  LOL

Here are some sites I found:
