I Have A Dream

Fifty years ago today Martin Luther King Jr made that amazing speech at the Lincoln Memorial, “I have a Dream today”. What moving words were used on that momentous occasion and heard by the throngs of African Americans and whites
gathered there. It was a real turning point in US history, it didn’t instantly eradicate racial divisions or hatred, but it did put America on the road to racial equality. I suppose some would claim equality has yet to be achieved, and they may be right in some areas of the US and indeed Canada. Nevertheless, I think if Martin Luther King were to come back today he would be pleased with what has changed in those fifty years. It takes brave bold people to speak out and address wrongs. I hope someone steps forward to condemn the present Russian stand on Gay rights and causes the Sochi games to be moved. Maybe some new brave and bold person will have a Dream Today!!!!!

God Bless and keep reading
