*The theme takes inspiration from the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who in his 1963 I Have A Dream speech remarked: “We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism.” He uttered the phrase again in his 1967 speech Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence when he said, “We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now.” Those five powerful words are just as poignant today as they were in 1963 and 1967.  On climate change as well as on matters of social justice, there is such a thing as being ‘too late,” as he famously noted.
