Let us remember this day

50 years ago today was Martin Luther King, Jr.’s amazing “I Have a Dream” speech.

This article documents how the famous phrase wasn’t even in the original draft.

This is a day ALL Americans should commemorate. I want Dr. King’s vision in my own life. I also want his spirit.

The article gives this account:

When King arrived at the Willard Hotel in Washington the night before the march, he still didn’t have a complete draft. King called his aides together in the lobby, and they started arguing about what should go in the speech. One wanted King to talk about jobs, another wanted him to talk about housing discrimination. Finally King said: “My brothers, I understand. I appreciate all the suggestions. Now let me go and counsel with the Lord.”

This is the spirit I want. “Let me go and counsel with the Lord.”
