The Excerpt Below comes from the Martin Luther King Speech commonly referred to as “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop”.
Toward the end of the speech, King refers to threats against his life and uses language that seems to foreshadow his impending death:
And then I got to Memphis. And some began to say the threats, or talk about the threats that were out. What would happen to me from some of our sick white brothers? … Well, I don’t know what will happen now. We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it doesn’t really matter with me now. Because I’ve been to the mountaintop. 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. So I’m happy, tonight. I’m not worried about anything. I’m not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.

My comments in regard to the Above are as follows…
I sure know how Reverend Martin Luther King felt, for “I am a Dead Man Walking too”.
Don’t Feel Sorry For Me…
I am the Happiest Man Alive! That’s No Shit!
Although I won’t be here much longer, I am Extremely Happy For All Of My Fellow Patriots and Fellow Americans… all of which will benefit from my death (my Internet Martyrdom)… for it will almost certainly cause Justifiable Revolution in America!!!
Jesus gave his life for humanity, Martin Luther King gave his life for humanity, so did John Fitzgerald Kennedy, and apparently so am I going to be killed such that humanity will benefit from my death.
I fear no more.
I accept my Fate with Courage and Grace.

I’m writing a book too… It is going to be a Collaborative Effort involving my WordPress Collaborative Internet Team and I… if I remain alive long enough.
