“I Have A Dream”
As someone who was born in 1961, I was too young to understand Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream Speech”. Since that time however, I have come to understand the Civil Rights Movement of the early 1960’s and the positive impact it has had on so many people, not the least of which is our current President of the United States. Even still, until today, I had never sat down and devoted the 17 minutes necessary to listen to the entire speech. When I finally did, it became clear to me what an amazing man Mr. King was and the debt of gratitude that we as Americans owe to him.
For those of you who, like me, that have never gotten around to listening to this great speech, I encourage you to take a moment, on this, its 50th anniversary to do so. It will remind you what a great nation we are and what we as a people are capable of accomplishing with words and without violence–something we should remind ourselves of regularly.
