Kennedy Berlin 1963

Observe, as I did, how slowly he speaks and how effective that is!
Of course, also his repetitions: he had a lot more important phrases not only the Ich bin ein Berliner!

I was that year that I arrived in France and only 2 years I escaped from the other side of the wall. There was a long wait, till end 1989 till the wall crumbled, but the "moment arrived" as Kennedy predicted.
I choose this speech to read for my task of Reading a Speech, from my Interpretative Reading Manual, so having heard it, again and again, will help me to read it, better.

Looking at it, again and again, I see he has notes on a series of cards, and from time to time, looked or read from that. Then, again he looked at the public on the square.
