Rev. William Barber: 'Be The Moral Defibrillator Of Our Time'

Dr. Barber's fiery speech took everyone to moral, patriotic church.

North Carolina's Dr. William Barber took everyone to moral church at the Democratic National Convention earlier tonight.

Calling for Americans to be the "moral defibrillators of our time," Barber called on Americans to "shock this nation" into being kinder, more loving and more moral.

"We are being called, like our mothers and fathers, to be the moral defibrillators of our time," he said, as the crowd rose with him for the umpteenth time. "We will shock this nation and fight for justice for all." And later: "We will not give up on the heart of our democracy, not now, not ever."

Watch and be inspired.
