50 years ago, Martin Luther King Jr. and many, many other Americans assembled in Washington DC. It was on this day that King gave his famous “I Have a Dream” Speech, and Americans became inspired.
“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up, live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.’”
In 50 years what have we achieved? What groups are still waiting for their rights to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”? I hope we all reflect on these words, and continue making strides forward for the next 50 years.
