On this day honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I will take the time to read his speech from The March on Washington in 1963, often called the “I Have a Dream” speech.
As always, I am moved by the eloquence and power of his words. I am grateful for the efforts, sacrifices, and courageous acts — large and small — that have resulted in expanded civil rights for millions in our country. And I am reminded of the work that remains to be done — work that I and WE need to do — to help make Dr. King’s dream a reality.
If you would like to read Dr. King’s speech from the March on Washington or any of his other works, you can find them online at The King Center.
