Moment of Silence Take some time today to reflect and be thankful for Martin Luther King, Jr. and the key role he played in seeking equality and human rights for African Americans, the economically disadvantaged, and all victims of injustice through peaceful protest. Listen to his most famous speech, “I Have a Dream” and be inspired.

See you on the mountain!
