In November 2014, Martin Luther King would have to tame the eloquence of his standard rhetoric. But, it would be fascinating to imagine the actual message of that speech. Some thought leader should write it as King would today and have it published in The Washington Post.
In his wisdom, King would have delivered the address before the verdict of the Grand Jury was announced. I have a hunch it would have stated that he was confident that all people would express their point of view peacefully. That is, he would hammer his expectation that people would respect themselves enough not to lose control.
In heaven, King might have felt a deep sadness since early this week.
