We're studying the 3 monotheistic religions - specifically, the importance of Abraham.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Christian pastor. As such, he was heavily influenced by Abraham.
We have Monday off in his honor, so I thought it would be fitting to post a clip from the last speech he gave. He mentions the Promised Land. ...The land God promised Abraham.
Of course, King is using it metaphorically: there are better times ahead. We will get there. It will be difficult, and I might not be there with you, but we will get there. We will claim the promises that are rightfully ours.
If you're here because you want the extra credit, take 3 minutes and watch that clip with an adult. Discuss it. Then, on a scrap of paper, write down what you thought about it. Have the adult sign the paper. Turn it in on Tuesday.
Have a great weekend. (I know I will... My daughter's birthday is today, and mine is tomorrow.)
