King’s last speech: “I’ve been to the mountaintop”

I am glad that I have a dream.  Persons have said one way or another keep on dreaming, dismissing the possibility of this promised land of citizens who are not judged based on the (social) color of their skin.  And I will.  I will keep on dreaming like so many others before me.

Perhaps, you are familiar with King’s last speech or maybe you’ve never heard it before.  But, there is a sense of closure, of self- satisfaction in that he realizes that he has seen it with his own eyes not in American society but in his spirit, he has soared to the mountaintop and that’s more than enough for him… and for me.
