Words truly have power and some of the most powerful words were spoken by Martin Luther King, Jr.
On this day of official remembrance, here are some of my favorite sources of this talks:
Democracy Now’s Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Special – I trust Amy Goodman as a source of progressive news and know I can turn to their broadcasts for many powerful words.
The King Center which is, I think, the official source of things King, opens with truly stirring words by the Doctor – worth listening to their automatic audio intro. But don’t limit yourself to just that.
Listening to his talks both thrills and saddens me.
I’m thrilled at his vision of peace and prosperity for all, by his hope that both cold happen.
And I’m saddened that humanity hasn’t yet found a way to be peaceful and share prosperity with all, that so often we ignore the needs of others.
His words give me hope, and for that I am grateful
