In memory of Dr. Martin Luther  King, Jr. (1/15/29 - 4/4/68)
His birthday is observed on the third Monday of January each year.  On April 4, 1968 in Memphis, TN, Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered what turned out to be his final speech.  He was in that Tennessee city to highlight the injustice felt by the city's sanitation workers, who were on strike over low pay and poor working conditions.  But near the end of the speech, he said this:

"Like anybody, I would like to live a long life-longevity has its place.  But I'm not concerned about that now.  I just want to do God's will.  And He's allowed me to go up 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, so I'm happy tonight.  I'm not worried about anything, I'm not fearing any man.  Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.  

Martin Luther King, Jr. was an American Baptist Minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the civil rights movement from 1955 until his assassination in 1968.  Following are some of his most famous quotes:

          "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."
          "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.  Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that."
          "Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed."
          "The time is always right to do what is right."
          "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."
          "Free at last, Free at last, "Thank God Almighty we are free at last."
          "Faith is taking the first step even when you see the whole staircase,."
          "In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."
          "Life's most persistent and urgent question is, "What are you doing for others?"
          "Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education."
          "True peace is not merely the absence of tension; it is the presence of justice.:"
          "Let no man pull you so low as to hate him."
          "If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward."
          "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of convenience and comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."
          "One day we will learn that the heart can never be totally right when the head is totally wrong."
          "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."
