Everyone should listen to this! Not just watch the video, but listen to what he's saying. Still relevant after all these years... maybe even more so now.

i like LOVE the verbiage, but a number of the images (not just the first one) really don't work for me at all to carry the spoken message.

I hear you; I was just so moved by the speech that I didn't spend a lot of time looking for a better version (I found others that were WORSE).
