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” Speech Aug. 20, 1963

 I decided early to give my life to something eternal and absolute. Not to these little gods that are here today and gone tomorrow, but to God who is the same yesterday, today, and forever. From “Rediscovering Lost Values,” Feb. 28, 1954

 I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant., Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance Speech, Dec. 10, 1964

I have a dream that my four little 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” Speech Aug. 28, 1963

The federal holiday honoring the civil rights leader is observed on the third Monday in January. It is a wonderful opportunity for all of us to see how far we have come and how far we have to go in the civil rights movement. One thing I know for sure is that we can all be kinder to each other in celebration of Dr. King’s work and we can just watch the world change! Cheers!
