The drum major instinct: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Master John Martin...

~Monday~ At the 2012 NC State's Martin Luther King, Jr. Campus Commemoration that I attended last week, Wes Moore referenced "The Drum Major Instinct" speech of Dr. King, and I made a note to listen to it.

I did early this morning, in celebration of the day. Thank you, Dr. King.

Dr. King talked about having the drum major instinct even as children. I guess I heard him, but I obviously didn't know what a metaphor was back then:
