Martin Luther King Day honors the life of a fighter for racial justice and equality. In Dr. King's 'I Have A Dream Speech,' here are some of the lines that are more relevant today than ever:
8 "I Have A Dream" speech quotes by Martin Luther King Jr.
"I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream."
"I have a dream that one day right there in Alabama little black boys and little black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers."
"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 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 that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave-owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood."
"We cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall march ahead. We cannot turn back."
"We refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt."
"Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"
As we remember Martin Luther King, Jr, on this special day, there are many challenges we face. While our country has felt very divided on many issues, while COVID-19 has forced us to live our lives differently, today is a day to re-commit to fighting to help all people live better. Health and healthcare is an area that we can all contribute to helping.
