In commemoration, I wanted to put up a short quote from his famous Mountaintop speech. This was spoken the day before he was killed (April 4, 1968).
“I just want to do God’s will. And he’s allowed me to go to the mountain. And I’ve looked over, and I’ve seen the promised land! I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the promised land” (Martin Luther King, Jr.).
