M.L.K. Jr. Day

I have the day off as many do because it’s Martin Luther King jr. Day.

I want to take the time to remember the man who was like our own Ghandi, the civil rights leader that changed the course of our history for the better. I know everyone references his “I have a Dream Speech” which is a wonderful speech to go back and watch but today I wanted to share a clip of his last speech, ” I Have Been to the Mountaintop”

It touches me because he talked about wanting to live a long life, doing gods work, and not living in fear. To me, it’s almost like he knew what his fate would be and he wanted us to know that he was at peace with himself.

Those words” I have been to the Mountaintop” take on a different meaning to me knowing this is the last speech he will give before his assassination.

His legacy lives on forever, that is why he lived!
