I am not religious in the least, but I admire Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I own his essential writings and speeches and it is my personal tradition to read a selection from them every year on this day. He is so eloquent and passionate that his words always inspire me. But even more than a writer, MLK's true genius was that he was a master orator, something that I think should never be forgotten. This short video from his last speech always amazes me. I'll share a few more clips from his speeches with you today, including one longer one that I hope you appreciate [1:16]
Martin Luther King is the reason for this holiday.
