"And so 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.'"

Martin Luther King
"I Have a Dream" Speech
