“Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain” (Isaiah 40:4 KJV)

These words from the prophet were directly quoted in the August 28, 1963, speech made by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in Washington, D.C., the speech shown above. That “every valley shall be exalted” was but one of the things Dr. King dreamed of, and that all people of faith still dream of, as we pray for a world of peace and justice. Shabbat shalom, friends.
