A Dream – 45 Years Later

Forty five years ago today, Martin Luther King Jr. stood before more than 200,000 in Washington and delivered one of the greatest speeches of all time. It stands for itself even to this day. The values, goals and message embedded within King’s words and eloquent delivery can still guide and inspire us today as we deal with injustices all around the globe. Thus, the most appropriate gesture to mark the occasion seems to simply post the speech itself. If you have never seen or heard the speech in its entirety, or if it has been a while, I wholeheartedly encourage you to take the time to view it here.

For the full text of the speech and an audio playback visit American Rhetoric, top 100 speeches.

“We cannot walk alone…
And as we walk we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead…
we cannot turn back.”
