"I Have A Dream"

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.

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.  Martin Luther King Jr.

When I think of great men in our country one of the first men that come to my mind is Martin Luther King.  He stood up for what was right when the majority was wrong.  He suffered ridicule and persecution ultimately ending in death.  Thank you Martin Luther King Jr. for giving us a platform to stand up for what is right and giving his life for a better future.  Happy Birthday to a true King on this earth.
