Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated more than four decades ago, but his profound and passionate words still ring true today.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”… When we let freedom 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, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, 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!”
— I Have a Dream Speech, Martin Luther King’s Address at March on Washington on August 28, 1963 in Washington, DC.
Thank you Dr. King and happy birthday.
