Today is a great day in the history of America. Today the dream of one man have become a true – Martin Luther King, who was selfless fighter for the inalienable right of everyone to be equal to any other person. Martin Luther King was not a realist. He had a dream! And he believed strongly that it will be come true. Even he was willing to stake his entire destiny and life on a single turn of the wheel. He was killed, but his dream lives even after his death. In the hearts of millions.
Quate from the Martin Luther King Speech:
I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
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 red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four 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.
I have a dream that one day the state of Alabama, whose governor’s lips are presently dripping with the words of interposition and nullification, will be transformed into a situation where 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.
I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.
This is our hope. This is the faith with which I return to the South. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.
This will be the day when all of God’s children will be able to sing with a new meaning, “My country, ’tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim’s pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring.”
And if America is to be a great nation this must become true
Martin Luther King was born in January 15, 1929. At the January 20, 2009 the Barack Obama will accomplish part of his dream.
Today is the great day for every dreamer. It is one more example, that dreams come true! People die, everybody forget them. But dreams continue to live and come to the reality.
Today the dream was accomplished by America. But if we will desire stronger and believe â€“ it will happen that one day all nations will rise and understandâ€¦ that all men are created equalâ€¦
P.S.:Dominica celebrate the inauguration of Barack Obama too: at the 12 oâ€™clock it will be given 10 minutes of silence. And also there are many Caribbeans, who left to visit America to be more close to the great event.
