I’ve Been to the Mountaintop”

“We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn’t matter with me now because I’ve been to the mountaintop… 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.”  —Martin Luther King speech, April 3, 1968

(In tribute to a great man who left us too soon.)
