PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A video &transcript attached for David Letterman's first appearance after 9/11 & delivers an emotional speech. Description from the New York Times below:

"Eloquent,” “quirky,” “bewildered” & “inspiring” are words rarely combined to describe a single speech, but Letterman’s heartfelt &apparently improvised remarks after the terrorist attacks were all those things, and more. At the helm of the first late-night show after 9/11, Letterman expressed his own sadness — & the nation’s — with perfect plainness. That “religious fervour” was the cause of the attacks, Dave pointed out, “makes no goddamn sense.” But his admiration & gratitude for police & firefighters, & to the city of New York, was a universally shared and uplifting sentiment.

Used in the Spoken Language unit to compare video clips (I used a more 'typical' Letterman clip with Julia Roberts on his show) but could be used for many things
