    I love this speech Martin gave on MLK Jr. I especially like how Martin brought the point back to the tactic used by MLK Jr as love and inclusiveness. Really great speech Martin! I had to watch it again as I ran across it in my mail looking for something else. Truly enjoyed it–I hope this site or blogger is able to pass my message about it to you!
