Nice post. I am working on mine now as a matter of fact. While the I Have a Dream speech is his most famous, I believe the Mountaintop speech was his best. considering the fact that he was there to make up for the debacle of his previous protest March in Memphis, the weather,that he was physically and mentally worn down by the process, he stepped up to the microphone to deliver an unscripted summation of his journey to that point in his life. Eerily he seemed to sense that it would be coming to an end for him but he let people know that their hopes and dreams would be strong enough to live on after him...

Jamie said...

I agree with you about "I may not see the other side" ... It was a beautiful speech.
