Remembering Dr. King

Since today is Martin Luther King Day, I will post a few of my favorite quotes from him:

"We are not wrong....if we are wrong justice is a lie."

"free at last, free at last, God Almighty free at last"

"Right here in Montgomery, when the history books are written in the future, somebody will have to say,"There lived a race of people, a black people,'fleecy locks and black complexion,' a people who had the moral courage to stand up for their rights. And therby they injected a new meaning into the veins of history and civilization."

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."

Also, here is a link to my favorite speech by Dr. King, the speech he gave at Montogomery before the start of the Bus Boycott. This speech was to rally people to protest Rosa Parks' arrest for sitting in the white section of a bus.
