Remembering the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.
'I have a dream'
When Martin Luther King Jr. spoke these famous words in 1963, the world listened. He's in good company — there's rich wisdom in the best speeches of all time.
Key excerpt: "I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of 'interposition' and 'nullification' — one day right there in Alabama, little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers. I have a dream today."

Sadly today many have forgotten the wisdom of his message and the American values for which he fought.
I have always thought that if he had lived in our times, might he not have become one of our greatest Presidents?
I think he most certainly would have!
