Friday Facts- August 30, 2013-I Have a Dream

This week was the anniversary of the Martin Luther King, Jr “I have a dream” speech. It was actually the 50th year since he made that impassioned plea and even though we’ve come a long way, we still have a long trek before the dream can come true. Sadly, it’s a problem on both sides of the racial divide. I don’t like to get political so I won’t but I really would love a world where we were all judged on our character and not on color, religion, weight, and other prejudices. If we could all believe that everyone is a heart and soul walking around in different outfits, wouldn’t the world be a great place? Live and let live is truly the way I try to live.

To the great visionary, MLK, I offer a toast! and a hope for a dream come true.

  1. Yes, I so agree Jillian. Another ‘fact’ I heard the other day was that “I have a dream” wasn’t in his original speech. The speech he prepared and delivered was pretty vanilla. Then the singer, Mahalia Jackson, said, “Tell them your dream.” He did and as they say the rest is history. 🙂
