    So I'm taking this speech and debate class and I need to find a powerful speech that is about five minutes a few more minutes wont hurt but it cannot exceed ten minutes. Any suggestions?

    EDIT: I am NOT writing a speech. I have to find one that has been done by a politician or a passionate speech. And please don't say i have a dream.

    What is it that you're asking for exactly? Help on finding a suitable topic to discuss (in which case are you limited a specific topic or can it be about anything?), or do you need help on actually preparing the speech? It is a video/script of an existing speech that you're after to examine/copy? (etc.)

    Do you need a topic? Or do you already have one?

    Aren't you supposed to write your own speech?

    Instead of using someone else's one?

    Oops sorry I need a prewritten speech made by a politician or someone influential. That has emotion. I have found plenty of good speeches it's just they all exceed my alloted time

    So you're writing a speech for debate huh? Well seeing that this years topic for debate *policy* is health care, then you should really just be able to find stuff on sites like debate central or other policy debate sites.

    Anyway I'm only saying that because I myself am a 2 year debate veteran
