"All we say to America is be true to what you said on paper," said Martin Luther King in his final moving public speech.
Today, on January 19, 2015 we remember the great man who stood up for all people and spoke to benefit the world.
And he did this knowing his life was beyond being in danger (it had been for some time), but that it inevitably was going to be snuffed out by those wishing to subjugate some of their fellow human beings for their own agendas.
Mr .King would be assassinated the day after this speech was delivered on April 3, 1968, at the Mason Temple in Memphis, Tennessee.
Listen to the power of these words at the end of that speech [video below].
"Somewhere I read that the greatness of America is the right to protest for rights."
There were fire hose beatings and sprayings of protestors and injunctions against their right to assemble going on right up to this day.
There were threats of murder.
And Mr. King fought on.
His words, his peaceful methods, are forever an inspiration for any man, woman or child born on earth, regardless of country of origin or race.
King said: "I don't know what will happen now. We have some difficult days ahead . . . I may not get there with you . . . but we as a people will get to the promised land . . .
"Like anybody I would like to live a long life, longevity has its place, but I'm not concerned about that now."
He ignored the threats against his life and publicly denounced the United States for not abiding by its own Constitution and Bill of Rights.
It is tragic that someone who strove so hard for equality and who could serve as a brilliant beacon of what it is to be human would be killed violently in the prime of his life.
Let us remember Martin Luther King Jr. not as a martyr but as a human willing to peacefully fight until the very end, until his last breath, to better his fellow brother and sisters and to better humanity.
