THE MAJESTIC HEIGHT OF MORAL MATURITY

So I can say to you this afternoon, my friends that in spite of the tensions and uncertainties of the period, something profoundly meaningful is taking place. Old systems of exploitation and oppression are passing away. Out of the wombs of a frail world, new systems of justice and equality are being born. Doors of opportunity are gradually being opened. Those at the bottom of society, shirtless and barefoot people of the land, are developing a new sense of somebody-ness, carving a tunnel of hope through a dark mountain of despair. People who stand in darkness have seen a great light. Here and there an individual or group dares to love and rises to the majestic height of moral maturity.

~Martin Luther King Jr. 1929-1968 United States Minister, Civil Rights Leader, Prophet
