deep in my heart, i do believe
I don't know if you've ever heard the entire "I Have a Dream" speech. I'm having my students watch it today, and am struck once again by what an incredible oratory Dr. King gave on that day 45 years ago. Part sermon, part political speech, and all call to action, he said exactly what needed to be said in that time and place: that injustice in our world poses moral questions that demand a response. There's a reason those words still speak to us today, for the great challenges of our time also demand that we reply.
As we're enjoying the long weekend, I encourage you to engage with his words and to commit to living in such a way as to free those who are oppressed.
