New Favorite Sentence

inauguration 2013”We, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths – that all of us are created equal – is the star that guides us still; just as it guided our forebears through Seneca Falls, and Selma, and Stonewall; just as it guided all those men and women, sung and unsung, who left footprints along this great Mall, to hear a preacher say that we cannot walk alone; to hear a King proclaim that our individual freedom is inextricably bound to the freedom of every soul on Earth.”

Barack Obama, Jan 21, 2013

Yes! "Seneca Falls, and Selma, and Stonewall" is one of the most effective uses of alliteration I've ever seen.

The alliteration indeed makes the phrase so much more memorable.
