MLK Day

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
January 15, 1929 ~ April 4, 1968


"Now I say to you today my friends, even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream.  I have a dream that one day, this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed - 'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.'


Speech on Civil Rights March on Washington, August 28, 1963

  2. I heard the speech again on the radio this morning. It is a moving and elegant speech, masterfully delivered. I just wish we were achieving the goals a little faster.

  8. I read this as I am listening to Washington DC school children reciting that speech at the Lincoln Memorial. While the delivery may not be as riveting as the original the words still ring out true and hit straight to the heart.
