He set himself the task to show the world on Page the evening in our National Arena was our most significant Celebration since Independence six years ago. For last night we were paying our tribute to a life that had reassured us. About our capacity to endure the grossest the most attacks on the human spirit and to add a new dimension to our humanity by the Fibre of our endurance. In the it is this Fibre to which we gave the award last the inimitable example from which we Day develop our own inter cities under assault it was not a manner cast in the Mould of grand and caesarean but rather one made from the ingredients available to any Man or woman whose dignity might be challenged. King As has no other Black american including Frederick Douglass and Booker t. The singular fac tor that the negro struggle to be and As entire Man to abide has added to the history of legitimate pro test the total and democratic involvement of All talents at All Levels. As we recalled the Man s presence and the Man s we could understand Why the Salute of from one participant to another in the cause for which he died has always rung More True than it has in any other revolution. It has been the Genius of the race from which King emerged that it has engaged the consciences of All decent of whatever at a familial Point of anguish. In the example of Martin Luther King s we can see Why. For if King was not the sort of Man with whom All other of whatever could claim brotherhood then our total species had no meaning. The most enduring legacy he has left us from his Brief and splendid adventure is his example of Radiant courage. It is a legacy we Are Likely to be using when Many More spectacular inheritances have been exhausted because courage is the first virtue upon which All our decent aspirations and holy longing must depend. And there will never be a time from now until the world s last voice when we shall not be in need of the Man who has it. Gab vet by to fhe key. Nivea so w engraved v if 4reb Itaf j by be no get.
