The subtitle reads
Though I am gone, I urge you to
answer the highest calling of your heart and stand up for what you truly believe.
That should grab your attention.
It is a remarkable piece, from which I will quote only one of the many remarkable paragraphs:
Though I may not be here with you, I urge you to answer the highest calling of your heart and stand up for what you truly believe. In my life I have done all I can to demonstrate that the way of peace, the way of love and nonviolence is the more excellent way. Now it is your turn to let freedom ring.
It is our turn.
Now go read it and pass it on.
