My friend Henry Harris’ tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

In recognition of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Day, this is my impersonation speech of “I’ve been to the mountaintop” which is the popular name of the last speech delivered by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. King spoke on April 3, 1968, at the Mason Temple in Memphis, Tennessee. He died the next day after this speech.

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.

Thought for the day

Dr__Martin_Luther_King_Jr_2“We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
