A Time To Remember A Great Man

In anticipation of Monday's Holiday, treat yourself and listen to the full "I Have A Dream" speech of Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered August 28, 1963. Full text is also available here .

"..when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, 'Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!'"

Thank you Tess I'm glad you enjoyed it. We are so grateful to have such an inspiring hero in our history (actually, our global history).
