Today is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day and there’s nothing I can write that hasn’t already been written about the significant impact Dr. King continues to have today. It’s simply amazing.
If you have not watched Dr. King’s entire “I have a Dream” speech, you can view it here. Also, here is a portion of the Last Speech Dr. King delivered the day before he was assassinated in Memphis, Tenn. It’s a powerful 77 seconds of his speech.
Dr. King invested a good portion of his life fighting for justice and equality, and it’s a fitting tribute to his efforts that tomorrow marks a historic day when Barack Obama will be named our 44th president.
Today we celebrate Dr. King’s life and legacy and tomorrow we celebrate a historic moment in American history when Barack Obama becomes our first African American President. It’s another step closer to realizing Dr. King’s dream.
