Happy 244th birthday, the glorious America!
I like to share a small part of the speech Martin Luther King Jr. delivered in December 1955 at the beginning of the year-long Montgomery bus boycott. It has touched my heart dearly.  He was 26 years old, and had just recently arrived in the city to become pastor of a Baptist church.
*********** Beg.
And certainly, certainly, this is the glory of America, with all of its faults. This is the glory of our democracy. If we were incarcerated behind the iron curtains of a Communistic nation we couldn’t do this. If we were dropped in the dungeon of a totalitarian regime we couldn’t do this. But the great glory of American democracy is the right to protest for right. 
*************** End.
