    Martin Luther King, III speech "I Have A Dream!"

    Excerpts follow:

    "...there will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the Negro is granted his citizenship rights. ...we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force. ...their destiny is tied up with our destiny.. We cannot walk alone.

    No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until "justice rolls down like waters, and righteousness like a mighty stream."

    I have a dream today!

    With this faith, we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith, we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.

    And this will be the day -- this will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with new meaning:

    My country 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing.
    Land where my fathers died, land of the Pilgrim's pride,
    From every mountainside, let freedom ring!

    And if America is to be a great nation, this must become true.
    And so let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire.
    Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York.
    Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania.
    Let freedom ring from the snow-capped Rockies of Colorado.
    Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California.

    But not only that:
    Let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia.
    Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee.
    Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi.
    From every mountainside, let freedom ring.
     
    And when this happens, and when we allow freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual:
                    Free at last! Free at last!
                    Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"

    AND SO IT CONTINUES....

    However, if WE "knew" JESUS, there would be "...no Jew nor Greek, no bond nor free, no male nor female: for we are all ONE in CHRIST JESUS" (Galatians 3:28)!

    "For we are all the children of GOD by FAITH in CHRIST JESUS " (Galatians 3:26)!

    Blessings
