“Let us not wallow in the valley of despair. I say to you today, my friends, even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream.”
— Martin Luther King, Jr.
Dr. King’s words continue to inspire us because his message was timeless. In the face of centuries of oppression and injustice, he urged his listeners toward the higher ground of perseverance, nonviolence, determination, faith and hope.
Though his speech
will forever be linked to that August day in 1963, the principles he describes transcend the immediate context to resonate today in countless ways. May his resolve bring you renewed belief in your own ability to defeat despair.
