“I have 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 [God]’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!

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop,” April 3, 1968

If you were taking a final journey with your closest friends, where would you go? Who or what would you take with you?
