In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King, Jr. would have been 77 on January 15. I often wonder how much different our world would be had he lived beyond his tragically short 39 years.

The first time I heard the words of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech I got chills. I still get chills when I read those words – such hope, such strength.

In honor of MLK’s birthday, take a moment and read the full text of his most famous speech – I Have a Dream.

And when this happens, 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!”
