“And I must confess, my friends, that the road ahead will not always be smooth.
“There will be rocky places of frustration and meandering points of bewilderment.
“There will be inevitable setbacks here and there.
“And there will be those moments when the buoyancy of hope will be transformed into the fatigue of despair.
“Our dreams will sometimes be shattered and our ethereal hopes blasted.
“We may again, with tear-drenched eyes, have to stand before the bier of some courageous civil rights worker whose life will be snuffed out by the dastardly acts of bloodthirsty mobs.
“But difficult and painful as it is, we must walk on in the days ahead with an audacious faith in the future.…”Martin Luther King, Jr. 1967. “Where Do We Go From Here?” Annual Report Delivered at the 11th Convention of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, August 16, Atlanta, GA. Excerpt.
