They took your life




They could not take your pride



3rd April 1968
"We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it doesn’t matter with me now. Because I have been to the mountaintop. And I don’t mind.

Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I’m not concerned with that now.

I just want to do God’s will. And He’s allowed me to go up the mountain. And I’ve looked over. And I’ve seen the promised land.

I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people will get to the promised land. And I’m not fearing any man.

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord."

This was a great post.

(and on a highly inapropriate side note, your icon reminds me of those awful portriats from elementary school.)

I was going to make a post about him this morning but I didn't have time before work. If anyone is interested, their is a book called "To The Mountaintop" by Stewart Burns. It details MLK's work for integration in the 50's and 60's. I highly recommend it.
