Right before he died...

Right before he died...by Paula Neal Mooney

All this week XM's 33 - The Spirit Channel has been playing excerpts from the Reverened Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr.'s rousing, sing-songy sermons. What a man with holy power working mightily thru him. MLK is still our leader today, since no man has come close to leading us and affecting change since.

This is my favorite MLK speech. After he closes with "Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord..." he collapsed into the arms of the men with him, as if he's expelled all his energy for a lifetime. Amazing...

This is truly one of his greatest speeches. My favorite is "Remaining Awake Through A Great Revolution"

Such an inspiring individual.

Why is that we insist on snuffing out gems like him and hope for a better future.

Yesterday I was preparing my post about him for Jan 15th, if you don't mind I would like to add a link to this post in it?
