In Remembrance of MLK, Jr.

Click here to see the long-form of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s famous "I Have a Dream" speech. This speech, in my modest opinion, contains the most stirring rhetoric in modern American history. Goosebumps never fail to pop up on the back of my neck, regardless of how many times I hear it.

What a refreshing reprieve from the patchwork and shrillness that marks so many of today's protests and their accompanying speeches.

P.S. To read a decent article about the civil rights experiences of three Mainers from yesterday's Portland Press Herald, click here.
