  • "With this faith we will be able to ..."

    Story


    I was born after the 1963 Washington D.C. March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. I don't remember ever not knowing about Martin Luther King, Jr's August 28, 1963 "I Have a Dream" speech. Until I heard an NPR interview of Dustin Volz, who had written a story for The National Journal, I didn't realize that I hadn't ever heard the entire speech.

    The "I Have a Dream" speech is under copyright protection until 2038. The Estate of Martin Luther King, Jr. Inc. holds the copyright, and enforces it vigorously. Legally, it's entitled to, but there's a huge debate about whether morally, it should, given its historical importance. I'll leave that debate to others - I was more than happy to pay for this Audible to hear the entire speech.

    King, delivering the speech at the Lincoln Memorial 100 years after Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, gives the famous words "I Have a Dream" historic context, including the 1963 reality of segregation. He builds to a crescendo, with the encouragement of Mahalia Jackson, who can be heard on the Audible.

    There is so much more to this speech than the common excerpts we see and hear.

    It is the best speech I've ever listened to.

    [The title of this review is from a portion of the "I Have a Dream" speech.]

    "I have a dream today." On August 28, 1963, Martin Luther King spoke these words as he addressed a crowd of more than 200,000 civil rights protesters gathered at The Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC. Two months earlier, President John Kennedy had sent a civil rights bill to Congress, but it was struck down. Although Kennedy was concerned about the possibility of widespread violence during this protest, he realized he was powerless to stop it and embraced the movement instead.

    There is nothing from the book except commentary and literary analysis of the book. I do appreciate it, however, that was not how it was presented online.

  • "Wow!!"

    2 of 2 helpful votes

    I would probably be classified as a liberal (what's up with these labels anyway). I really wanted to understand the mindset of an African American 'Ultraconservative' being African American myself and somewhat successful. Well, I have come to the conclusion that the end result is determined by the journey - and what a journey it was for Justice Thomas. He has a place reserved on my study wall right next to Truman, Obama, Einstein and yes Malcolm x.

    In this lecture, Dr. Hawkins presents some basic ideas, such as the fact that everything happens spontaneously and that nothing causes anything. Everything is an automatic consequence of the energy field. He shows how the power of one’s intention brings about manifestation, and how potentiality becomes actuality in and of itself because of the field. He explains the use of kinesiology, why people may not believe in it, and how the infinite field of consciousness instantly registers truth.

Intention, he explains, is not something you do, but an energy you're a part of. Not only do you emanate from the field of intention, but if you align yourself to it, your desires become fulfilled and you find yourself at peace.

    Finding one's calling is not just about finding something we can do - it is about finding what we can't not do. "Let your life speak" is a time-honored Quaker admonition to live one's life as witness to the deepest truths one knows.

    "It's been a quiet week in Lake Wobegon, my hometown..." Garrison Keillor first did his monologue in 1974 to an audience of 20 in a St. Paul theater. Today, more than 2.2 million people tune in each week to hear the tall tales and sweet stories about the citizens of this small Minnesota town. It's a town where "the women are strong, the men are good-looking, and all of the children are above average."
