Celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day

I hope you're all enjoying a nice, long holiday weekend, and in honor of Martin Luther King Day, I thought I'd post his famous "Dream" speech, on the rare chance some of you have not seen it. If you haven't, you must; and if you have, watch it again. It never fails to inspire. Enjoy!

Thanks for sharing this Chef John. My son has been learning about Dr. King in school. His words and resolve continue to be an inspiration for us all.

G'day CJ.
You're absolutely correct, that was truly Inspirational.
We've all watched excerpts and thought we'd watched the complete speech, but this was the first time I've ever watched the complete speech.
Quite emotional and I'd like to thank you for posting this, we don't celebrate MLKJr Day here in Oz and if it wasn't for you I would've missed it altogether.
Keep up the good work.

Thank you Chef.

History seems to call forth greatness.

Dr. King was the right man for the time, just as Lincoln, Jefferson, Washington were for theirs.

Thank you Chef John. I have never seen the entire speech. It was truly inspirational and a wonderful time to be reminded what a great man he was. I will share with my family.
