MLK "I Have a Dream" Speech Anniversary

Today, August 28, is the 47th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I have a dream…” speech. It was a speech filled with hope, determination, confidence and a call to action. It was a call to our nation to “rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice.” He wanted to make sure that all people, regardless of race, creed, color or religion were “guaranteed the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” King reminded us that our country had a long way to go. As I look back and reflect on this important speech, I realize that we have made much progress in 47 years. I also understand we still have a long way to go on the road to equality. Take a few minutes to watch this inspiring speech…I Have a Dream Speech. Not bad for a guy who got a C in public speaking!

In January of this year, I wrote a post about how we celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. Day. It occurred to me that we have lost sight of this day’s importance and how we “celebrate” it. Here’s my post…Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr…With a Mattress Sale? Let me know what you think! What can we do to continue the Dr. King’s dreams?
