"We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline"

It is the 42nd anniversary of Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s I Have A Dream speech. [text and audio here]

Thanks to Ralph Luker for the reminder. No, Ralph, rhetoric and sentiments like that can never be overexposed in this age of sound bites, spin and liability weasels. I suppose, by being iconic, people tend to look past the words, and by being historical, people assume that it doesn't matter anymore. But some challenges are timeless, and the words ring beautifully on the page and in the heart and mind.
