On August 28, 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered ‘I have a Dream’ one of the most influential speeches in American history. This 17-minute speech is etched in the minds of millions and is still being talked about 48-years later. Today we are here to celebrate the life of Dr. King and his idea of what a ‘Dream’ really means.
According to Webster’s dictionary, dream is defined as: (1) a strongly desired goal or purpose or (2) a visionary creation of the imagination.
An idea or dream in and of itself is useless; the value comes in the execution. I love the fact that this speech and Dr. King’s life have served as an inspiration to me and countless others. In closing I want to challenge you as I challenge myself with this closing thought . . .
