Martin Luther King Jr. Day...

Today, the third Monday of January, is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. A day set apart to honor the sacrifice and impact made by the chief spokesman of the nonviolent civil rights movement, which successfully protested racial discrimination in federal and state law.

To honor the impact made by Dr. King and many others, I wanted to post his famous "I Have a Dream" speech. Not only is it one of the most well constructed (and delivered) speeches I've ever heard, it's (no doubt) one of the most important. If you've never seen it, I'd definitely recommend watching it. Editor's Note: The line comes at 12:21.

In the short history of our country, we've had many champions of freedom. Dr. King stands, rightfully so, amongst those champions; to be remembered in the present for his sacrifice in the past. All to change our future...
