I was just 13-years-old when he delivered arguably the most famous and significant speech in the nation's history.
Yesterday marked the 45th anniversary of the poor people's march on Washington, the location of Dr. Martin Luther King's address.
Dr. King spoke often of the "beloved community." He knew what we experience and prove up every day here in inner city Dallas. We all need each other. We're all connected to one another. What adversely affects the one, hurts the rest. When one neighborhood struggles or fails, all other neighborhoods are damaged whether immediately felt or recognized or not.
His speech is a gift to us all.
Everyone should listen to this speech at least once a year.
