Martin Luther King speaks 28th August 1963
I Have a Dream…..
When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, 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. was a great man not because he fought for one group of people, but because he fought for all people .He fought for the poor and disenfranchised. He fought for hose who were being persecuted and bombed.He fought for workers to earn a decent wage. He was more than just a civil rights leader; he was a human rights leader. Somehow I think he would be deeply ashamed of what we have become today. Race ,sex, religion, sexual orientation, none of these matter. We are all brothers and sisters.
