I Have a Dream



“I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American 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....' [...] when we allow 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’”.

May we all remember this great civil rights leader today in our prayers,  and in turn ask him to pray for our nation- that our efforts to end to unjust discrimination against the unborn and the elderly in our time might be as successful as his movement was years ago.
May God forgive and bless America.
Amen.

  1. Indeed! My Mom had me write a paper about him for a school assignment, and I enjoyed learning about him so much. He was truly incredible! And, I can promise you he would not be in support of what is going on in our country right now, even if Obama is half-black.
    God Bless!

  2. Amen!!! It's amazing how much the civil rights movement has in common with the pro-life movement today...

  3. Yes, Caitlin, it is indeed!

    It's so nice to see Dr. Alveda King standing up for life, as I'm sure her uncle would have had he been alive today.

    Thanks for commenting, and welcome to my blog! :)

    God Bless.
