free at last



the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.,

began what would become one of the greatest speeches in history with,

“I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.”

He ended with, “When we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual: Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”

Goethe wrote,

“A man can stand anything except a succession of ordinary days.”

And, “Divide and rule, a sound motto. Unite and lead, a better one.”


“That is the true season of love, when we believe that we alone can love, that no one could ever have loved so before us,

and that no one will love in the same way after us.”
