I've Seen the Promise Land

“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!”

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Sunrise January 15, 1929- Sunset April 4, 1968

I want to apologize for comparing Dr. King with Malcolm X last year in a previous post. Because both of them had the same goal vastly different approaches due to their different life experinces. Anyway lets celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. King and all of the people that were down for the fight before, during, and after the Civil Rights Movement.
