"I've Been to the Mountaintop"

Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I’m not concerned about that now. I just want to do God’s will. And He’s allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I’ve looked over. And I’ve seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land.

- The Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.. the day before he was murdered.

Here is a video excerpt of his speech.
