"I am not unmindful that some of you have come here out of great trials and tribulations. Some of you have come fresh from narrow cells. Some of you have come from areas where your quest for freedom left you battered by the storms of persecution and staggered by the winds of police brutality. You have been the veterans of creative suffering. Continue to work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive."
by:
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
(1929-1968), US civil rights leader
Source:
Speech delivered on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. on August 28, 1963.
