“Only when it is dark enough can you see the stars”
Reposting this today in honor of Dr. King:
I am grateful for the reminder in church this morning of the powerful words that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. shared in his last speech, “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” on April 3rd, 1968. His inspiration, support, and leadership lives far beyond the generation of people who knew him, and our world is much changed for the better as a result of his work. I believe the greatest leaders articulate thoughts in a manner that resonate across many generations, peoples, and circumstances, and today King’s message of hope – in an incredibly difficult time – has a special ring for me. In this speech he shares his desire to be in that place, at that time, to face those difficult issues even if given the opportunity to be anywhere else.
