THE FOLLOWING IS AN EDITORIAL
Today marks the 50th anniversary of Doctor Martin Luther King, Junior's famous "I have a dream..." speech at the end of the March on Washington.
I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.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.
But while Dr. King was addressing the needs of a specific group at the time, there are others who have yet to fully experience the dream for themselves.
Through no fault of their own, circumstances have caused hatred to focus upon and detest their country of origin, their religious beliefs, or perhaps their personal choices when pursuing a life mate.
While there is way too much going on in the world today for one simple editorial to change things, the words of the 1960s 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 (and women) are created equal.
THINK ABOUT IT!
The above was an editorial of The Free Choice E-zine.
