Forty-five years later, we still have a dream, we being the citizens of the United States of America still dream for those things that have not yet been overcome and those that some are trying to overthrow we dream of a time when they are defeated.
We have a dream for our school children to now not only sit side by side in a classroom of diversity, but for ALL American children to get a quality education and one that not only includes the fundamental basics of reading, writing, mathematics, but truth in history. The same freedom to mention God without persecution from school administrations as other religious believers have now, and the freedom that is given to non-religious believers to not participate or acknowledge if they so choose to do so.
We have a dream for the return of respect in regards to our nation’s constitution, for those that have the authority to use common sense introspection when they entertain the notion of amending, suppressing and even to try to be so bold as to eliminating our constitutional rights.
We have many dreams, I personally have a dream of seeing the need for racial identity to not only to desist but to cease to be used by those that want to use it to make political distinctions, guilt others into doing things, and used unfairly for racial advantages.
I have a dream, we all have a dream, dreams can be the basis for inspiration, innovation, and motivation to transformation.
I often wonder and day-dream, what would be Martin Luther King Jr’s dream be today?
When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men would be guaranteed the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.~MLK Jr’s I have a dream (selected passage for these modern time)
An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.~Martin Luther King Jr.
