Today, January 15, marks the 77th anniversary of the birth in 1929 of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
There are all sorts of celebrations going on around the world, including many on Monday, Jan. 16, which is the official day when Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is celebrated in the U.S. this year.
If you haven't done so either ever or in some time, make sure to read the text of his most famous speech, "I Have A Dream". This was given on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. at the March on Washington on August 28, 1963, in front of a crowd of at least 250,000 people with millions more watching on television. You can read it here or here (the second is a PDF file).
