Being Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

How beautiful are these words of love and truth spoken by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who preaced the gospel of peace. These are words of power, clarity and inclusiveness, infusing hope.

We acknowledge the diversity and hope of those in the crowd, black and white, old and young, Christians and Muslims, rich and poor. The diversity of the gathering is beautiful.

America, we have come to such a historic moment yet again. We will all gather again on the National Mall tomorrow, remembering that other great day, the day a King dreamed.

We honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the nameless countless others who marched, fought, and died for the peace of America and all of her citizens.
