inauguration day

"I don't know what will happen now. We've got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn't matter with me now, because I've been to the mountaintop.
And I don't mind.

Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain. 

And I've looked over. And I've seen the Promised Land. 

I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the Promised Land.

And so I'm happy, tonight.

I'm not worried about anything."

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
