The Dream

Today we celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. The great Civil Rights leader, well known for his "I have a dream" speech given back in 1963. Even though I have heard parts of the speech, and some phrases have even become common, I realized today that I had never actually read, or listened to, the speech in its entirety.

I was fortunate to have the radio on a station that played the speech and it was very moving. If you have never heard it, or read the text, or if it has been a while, please check it out. Here's one link, but there are many, just google it.
