Let Innate Ring!
Adaptation of Martin Luther King Jrs. "I have a dream"
I say to you today my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the vision of the Palmers.
I have a dream, that one day this nation will rise up out of the destructive fires of medicine and truly understand the meaning of the creed: "the power that made the body, heals the body".
I have a dream, that one day on the magestic hill of Brady Street the sons of Chiropractors and the sons of Medical doctors will be able to sit down at the table of truth and understanding.
I have a dream, that one day even the A.M.A., an organization sweltering in the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and life.
I have a dream, that one day our children will not be forced by our government to be the receptacles of vaccinations and other poisons. And that these children will not be judged by the chemicals in their blood, but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today!
I have a dream, that one day the boards of chiropractic examiners will not shut-out our new graduates, but will welcome them with open arms as brothers and sisters in the march to correct all subluxations.
I have a dream, that every hospital shall be made empty, because there are no patients to tend for. Every prison shall close, because there will be no crime. Every insane asylum shall open its doors, because all shall be made sane. And all the houses of worship shall be filled to capacity, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.
I have a dream today!
This is our hope. This is the faith with which we return to these meetings. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountains of medical despair, a stone of hope through Chiropractic. With this faith we will be able to transform the sickness and fear in our nation into a beautiful symphony of wellness and life. With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to adjust together, and to free the masses of their subluxation, knowing that we will all be free one day.
This will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with new meaning. "My country tis healthy, sweet land of liberty, of these I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim's pride, from every mountain side, Let Innate Ring!"
And if our profession it to realize its vision, this must become true. So Let Innate Ring from the great halls of our nations capital. Let Innate Ring from every television news show and newspaper in the land. Let Innate Ring from the boardrooms of corporate America, and from every hospital bed in this nation, Let Innate Ring!
But we must also; Let Innate Ring from National College in Lombard Illinois. Let Innate Ring from the colleges of coastal California. Let Innate Ring from green hills on Barclay Circle. And from all the other school that train our profession's future, Let Innate Ring.
But not only that: Let Innate Ring from the proud halls of Palmer in Davenport. Let Innate Ring from this very gathering here today. Let Innate Ring from every adjusting table in every office. And from the mouths of every Chiropractor Let Innate Ring.
When we Let Innate Ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children will free of sickness and disease, free of chemicals and mediocrity, free to express their full Innate potential, then we will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual;
"Free at last! Free at last!
Thank God almighty we are free at last!"
