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. -Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., April 3, 1968 National Civil Rights Museum, Memphis, Tennessee.

the other half of the museum is in the building across the street, beyond the 'brushy area', where the shot came from. the door reads i may not get there with you, but i want you to know that we as a people will get to the promised land. this was from the speech the night before he died.
