Dr. Martin King left us with more than hope in his words he left us with instructions on how to live as an American people by forever lifting spirits with positive phrases such as: “Free at last! Free at last! Great God a-mighty I’m free at last!”
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day that they will live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character” Its words like these that make the speech a source of inspiration, history, and iconic to who we are as a growing America. We’re getting closer and closer to this each day that goes by. As the USA continues to diversify we will continue to grow into this dream that Mr. King spoke of this day.
