Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

“Now, I say to you today my friends, 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. 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.'”  

- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Speech at Civil Rights March on Washington, August 28, 1963
