Something Other than a Dream

I love this video, as a reminder that Dr. King didn't spend all of his time dreaming...

"...Don't let anybody make you think that God chose America to be his divine messianic force to be a sort of policeman of the whole world. God has a way of standing before the nations with judgement and it seems that I can hear God saying to America, 'You are too arrogant. And if you don't change your ways, I will rise up and break the backbone of your power. And I will place it in the hands of a nation that doesn't even know my name.'"

-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Sermon at the Ebenezer Baptist Church
April 30th 1967
