“Early Morning, April 4, Shots Ring Out in the Memphis Sky”

Today is the anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Kudos to our family at Pa’lante Latino for sharing the following video, which was Dr. King’s last speech, the day before he was gunned down in Memphis.

Like one member said on our Facebook wall today: “Look at him: he knew.”

Maybe Dr. King did know that his time on the physical Earth would be short, and maybe his words will inspire us to continue to carry the dream of this country’s quest to reach the promised land. Are we there yet? Sadly, no. But we will never forget Dr. King’s words, and even though one more went “down in the name of love,” we are as Americans should continue to love and to work together. There are many moments when we don’t, but in the end, as long as we are treating each other with respect and compassion, there is hope.

Hit it, Bono.
