Well, 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.
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!
April 3, 1968.
