"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.
I have a dream today."
by:
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
(1929-1968), US civil rights leader

Speech delivered on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. on August 28, 1963.

    I think he was send from above...his dreams not only count in america but all over the world as we all need and want to live in peace with each other. In my country, Fiji, it is a multicultural society and we all have a dream of living peacefully with all the different races that call Fiji their place.
