We will never forget!

non-violence-1160132_960_720Well, I don’t know what will happen now; we’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn’t matter to with me now, because I’ve been to the mountaintop. And I don’t mind. 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.

And 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.

  1. This speech is especially appropriate as the first act of Dhrump is to take health insurance away from 20 Million Americans. The USA is the only “1st World Nation” that does not provide Universal Healthcare for its citizens. Under this new administration many Americans will get sick and die. So sad. Dr. King is spinning in his grave! Everything he worked for including the Civil Rights Movement and the Voting Rights Act will be gone with a signature of the Tyrant’s pen! Unbelievable!!
