Martin Luther King Jr. – I have a Dream!

January 13, 2012

Soon we will honor an American who devoted his life’s work to ensuring equality for all people. The words of Martin Luther King Jr. remind us all to keep working to fulfill his dream of a country and a world where all people are truly free!

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today!

. . . . . .

And when this happens, when we allow 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!

Martin Luther King, Jr., I Have a Dream. Delivered 28 August 1963, at the Lincoln Memorial, Washington D.C.

Let us know what you are doing in your classroom to help achieve the DREAM.

Linda C.
