Martin Luther King, Jr.

I read an article today about some of the connections between Martin Luther King, Jr and Latter-day Saints.  While I consider some of the connections tenuous at best, it's still worth the read—mostly for this quote:

Martin Luther King spoke these words in a sermon at Temple Israel in Hollywood in 1965.  They are so powerful to me, especially now, when I feel sort of lost in life.

I wish I could have heard just one of his speeches.  I have no doubt that he was one of the greatest—if not the greatest—speakers the world has ever known.  Take a look at some of his words:

My mother heard him speak when she was at Duke in the 60s. So cool.
