MARTIN LUTHER KING JR

Today we celebrate the life and words of MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.

As we enjoy our day off from work or school (if your job gave you the holiday off, that is), please take atleast a brief moment to think about our Civil Rights. Think about where Civil Rights were at before King and the Civil Rights Movement...think about how much has changed since. And most importantly, think about how much work and growth is still needed.

Click here to read King's profound "I Have A Dream" speech, 1968. If you haven't heard or read it before, here's your chance!

Thanks Jim. It was good to read such a simple but powerful speech. I'm always amazed at King's legacy. He is much more a force after his death than before. Before he was assassinated, he was feared, villified, marginalized, and ignored. I'm glad that his voice still rings out and rings true.
