I Have a Dream

“Now is the time to open the doors of opportunity to all of God’s children …
I have a dream that one day … the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.
This will be the day when all of God’s children will be able to sing with new meaning,
‘My country ’tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing.
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the Pilgrims’ pride,
From every mountainside,
Let freedom ring.’
When we let freedom ring … we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual,
‘Free at last!
Free at last!
Thank God Almighty,
We are free at last!’”
– Martin Luther King, Jr.  from the world-renowned “I Have a Dream” speech in Washington, D.C.
