I Have a Dream!

Friday, July 2, 2010

Let's all celebrate America's birthday by watching Martin Luther King, Jr.'s magnificent speech, certainly one of the greatest speeches ever given by an American. 

Now if only Abe Lincoln's Gettysburg Address was also available on YouTube . . .I cry every time I see this, because I am so moved.
Happy Fourth of July everyone! Have a great weekend!

  1. visiting from SITS. That is truly one of the best speeches ever! Too bad we don't have a video clip of President Abraham Lincoln giving the Gettysburg Address. That is worth reading again this weekend as well.

  2. @Elizabeth -- it's beautiful isn't it? I'm so touched with watching everyone walking together at the beginning, and then the speech . . . I get tears in my eyes every time.

  3. That speech is so powerful. For the past two years, we took our clients on a Civil Rights tour to Atlanta (GA) (MLK, Jr's home town), Birmingham (AL), Selma(AL)and a few other stops. The whole idea of what people (even children) went through is amazing and saddening. Too bad this year it looks like budget cuts has cut out such an important trip.

  4. @Ms. Understood -- that must have been fascinating to go to all those historic places that played such integral roles in the fight for civil rights.
