Please Watch 'I Have a Dream'

No matter how you chose to observe the memory of Martin Luther King Jr. today, a wonderful and moving way to end the day would be to watch the full video of Dr. King's famous speech given in Washington, D.C. on August 28, 1963.

Is there an American in public life today – much less one who never even reached 40 years old – with the sheer charisma and weight of conviction of this man?

No way.

Martin Luther King did not fight only for Black Americans – he fought for all Americans, to the extent that he was fighting for the soul of America itself. Dr. King stood for what we aspire to be and a creed that, at that time, was most assuredly being ignored and trashed.

There is nothing on television tonight as important as this. Please take a look.

Bradblog has the video and you can pick up the text here.
