Dr Martin Luther King Jr, 3 Speeches.

January 15 was the anniversary of the birth of Martin Luther King Jr. His legacy is being sought by environmentalists and social justice campaigners today. The “spark” that ignited people’s souls when Dr King spoke is just not there, so we slide.

Democracy Now brought the spark to mind in their commemoration of a truly great man by replaying his speech on the American war in Viet Nam, and tellingly, in his shockingly prophetic speech the day before his assasination, “I have been to the mountain top and seen the promised land”. The 3rd speech is the Washington Memorial speech, “I have a dream”

Close your eyes, listen to the words, feel the moment.
