King ended his talk with his version of the Parker quote:

"Let us realize that the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice. Let us realize that William Cullen Bryant is right: 'Truth, crushed to earth, will rise again.' Let us go out realizing that the Bible is right: 'Be not deceived. God is not mocked.'

"'Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.' This is our hope for the future, and with this faith we will be able to sing in some not too distant tomorrow, with a cosmic past tense, 'We have overcome! We have overcome! Deep in my heart, I did believe we would overcome.'"

King's enemies, and there were many, could not dim the spirit nor the influence of a man who reminded us that "God is not mocked."

The movement King led brought down the walls of segregation. That "security wall" Israel claims it needs for its protection, will be brought down as well, along with the occupation it symbolizes and enforces.

This end of one more chapter of the "peace process," is certainly a failure of the participating parties. It is not, however, the final word on the subject.
