Ten Year Old Lydia England Recites “Things of the Spirit”

Things of the Spirit – President Coolidge’s timeless speech from 1926

In 2013,  Lydia England recited a portion of President Coolidge’s “Things of the Spirit” speech, which he gave in 1926 on the 150th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

Lydia was ten years old at the time she recited Coolidge’s speech.

It is a timeless speech, and Lydia delivers it beautifully.

In many ways, our country faces the same challenges today!
