Does anyone know where I can get a recording of VaTech Cadet Barqawi's speech at the state convention? It was the best I've heard in more than 35 years of political activity and I would like to share it with some friends.
I hope taht they post it, we are looking for it also.
In the mean time I found this link about him: http://www.vtnews.vt.edu/story.php?relyear=2009&itemno=325
Here is a little extract of what is said in th article:
"His fellow cadets best describe the impact of Cadet Barqawi’s leadership. In written assessments prepared for a Virginia Tech course of study, freshman identified Barqawi as the one leader on campus that has made the most positive impact on them. Some examples of their observations include “When we are wrong, he stops us and makes us realize what we are doing; Every time he speaks I seem to gain something; When he speaks, everyone else stops to listen because they know he has something important to say.”
I agree it was the best speech of the convention. I loved his passion! He needs to speak at the next National Republican Presidential Convention in 2012. I would love to see him face off in a debate with the democrats!
