The Fierce Urgency of Now!

On March 28, 1963 The March on Washington For Jobs and Freedom took place.  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his famous I Have a Dream Speech.  An often overlooked theme of the speech, and one of the reasons Dr. Kings said they had come to that hollowed spot (the Lincoln Memorial) was to remind America of the fierce urgency of now.

Turns out that Dr. King was on to something.  That is that the best time to do anything is always…Now.
