I Have a Dream: Unconditional Love Will Have the Final Word

I Have a Dream: Unconditional Love Will Have the Final Word

My dream is that one day, Martin Luther King’s visions of the future will be our current reality, and “unconditional love will have the final word”.

He said, in his I Have a Dream speech:

And when this happens, and when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual:

Free at last! Free at last!

Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!

 

And he also said:

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.

…and unconditional love will have the final word.
