Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

MLK

“We must use time creatively, in the knowledge that the time is always ripe to do right.”
– Martin Luther King, Jr.

“I don’t know what will happen now. We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn’t matter with me now. Because I’ve been to the mountaintop. 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 that we as a people will get to the promised land. So I’m happy tonight. I’m not fearing any man.”

– Memphis, April 3, 1968, the day before King’s death
