the dream is still alive

from desert peace: Forty four years today a demonstration took place in Washington DC…. a demonstration that literally shook the foundations of the system… a demonstration of people against racism led by the greatest of the great: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The speech that he gave that day is only second in fame to the one given by President Lincoln in Gettysburg 100 years or so earlier. A speech that today is still remembered by those who heard it and one that will continue to be heard by millions. The speech can be heard in it’s entirety in the following video. The words are as valid today as they were 44 years ago.
