On August 28th, 1963, the world watched as Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. The entire city was packed with people waiting to hear his words and he didn’t disappoint them. There were over 300,000 people there that day and many more watching at home or listening on radio broadcasts. The day he spoke about is not the day when we are silent but rather when we act.
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”– Martin Luther King Jr.
