The Streets of Heaven

One of the most heartfelt and emotional speeches ever delivered was by Tom Hanks in 1993 for Philadelphia.  Philadelphia was a groundbreaking movie in terms of its content and portrayal of a less than normal couple and their battle with AIDS.  Towards the end of Tom Hanks speech he speaks up about AIDS and utters the words “the streets of heaven are to crowded with angels”.  This will forever been an iconic phrase used to describe those who died of AIDS.
