      Robert, whether or not is the correct way to say it, King did start his speech with one of those lines (don’t want to give it away in the comments, though!)

  1. Thank you Sarah – i was 8 at the time and heard of an incredible happening in DC. I was 13 when I engraved his speech in my memory and it has been so helpful so many times. I still and probably always will tear up when I hear it. I only missed out on the nuber of people there…wish I was one of them.

  2. Though I had read it in parts over the years, I read the speech in its entirety for the first time today because my children have a school assignment. What an incredible speech. I am so glad I am re-schooling myself through my children’s assignments!
