By The Stream Published on March 20, 2018

Note from Stream publisher James Robison: This is the message I wish everyone in America would listen to — powerful, profound truth delivered effectively. We posted it on October 8, 2017 — but it is worth listening to again. Watch it and share.

Dr. Rick Rigsby delivers a powerful speech at California State University on how his father’s teachings have guided him through the most troubling times of his life. Stream publisher James Robison calls it “the best short speech I’ve ever heard.”

Check it out.
