Two brothers one goal!!

I have been to the mountaintop, my eyes have seen the coming of the Lord!!!!

For the first time I just really heard this. I never knew. I am a white man so I never listened. Can you hear in this what he is saying?

Watch this man as he collapses after this speech. He was a prophet. He saw, he knew, he filled.He was a witness.

Read it closely.

“Well, I don’t know what will happen now. We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn’t matter with me now, because I’ve been to the mountaintop. And I don’t mind. Like anybody, I would like to live a long life ā€” longevity has its place. But I’m not concerned about that now. I just want to do God’s will. And He’s allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I’ve looked over, and I’ve seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land. So I’m happy, tonight. I’m not worried about anything, I’m not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.” ā€” the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

Now do you people know what is is to be a witness? What the archetype says?


One response

  1. Way back in my grade 7 class, my teacher talked about Alexander the Great and other historical figures who have had the term “Great” affixed to their names. The teacher asked us who we thought were great, and what greatness means to us?

    At that age, I still wasn’t able to express myself adequately but I tried my best to get across that Martin Luther King was a man worthy of title “Great”. Here’s why:

    I believe that a person of greatness achieves long lasting improvement on the lives of many. When you read about MLK’s life you find that he was far from perfect; just a man. It’s a fact that his efforts and self-sacrifice; nevertheless, became the basis for legal policies on fairness not just for African Americans but for whites, and others in many countries around the world.

    That’s “Greatness”.
