I Have A Dream

January 19, 2009

Before we get to soccer today, let’s not forget…

“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 one day on the redhills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slaveowners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood…. I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nationwhere they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. … I have a dream that one day little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls and walk together as sisters and brothers. I have a dream today.”

–Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, Washington, DC, 1963
