I See the Promised Land "Well, I don't know what will happen now. We've got some difficult days ahead. But it doesn't matter with me now. Because I've been to the mountaintop. And I don't mind. 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. And I'm happy, tonight. I'm not worried about anything. I'm not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord"---MLKing Jr.

"A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death"

JohnR - Thanks! That was much more uplifting than some "Christams oriented" post - sanctifying, even.

Since we're quoting M. L. King Jr., I'll sneak in a chance to mention my site:
