"I've been to the mountaintop"

I've always preferred Martin Luther King's final speech, delivered the night before his death, to his "I have a dream" speech. There's an unsolved mystery to it - had he really experienced a vision? Was he aware that his time was running out? Did these words come to him as he was speaking them?

We'll never know, but we can marvel all the same.
