I have a dream…


“I have a dream today … I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low. The rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight. And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together. This is our hope. This is the faith that I go back to the South with. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood.”

 – Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.                                                                                          

(I’m sure you have heard it before – but it is always worth listening again. Every time I listen, I weep. And tonight was no exception. Let us keep this faith, this hope, this dream alive in our hearts.)

    Just saw stirring speech by RFK on the day of MLK’s assassination.

    Peace,

    Rodger
    PS: April 6 and the following week looks good.

    Thank you, Rodger

    I had heard of this speech but never listened to it. Beautiful. (And so very sad that he too was killed.)
