Mr. King was born on January 15, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia. During his life, which was ended on April 4, 1968 by an assassin's bullet, he was a reverend, a cavil rights leader and in 1964 a Nobel Peace Prize recipient.
As a civil rights leader he delivered a very important speech on August 28, 1963 in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C.. The speech, which has gone down in history as one of his best, is known as "I have a dream".
This morning I was asking myself, have I ever actually read the famous I Have a Dream Speech? My answer was no. How could that be I wondered. With the help of Google I fixed that little error. I now have a better idea of the plight of people of color. Although Mr. King had many dreams, there was one paragraph that stood out for me. I'm sure he was a wonderful reverend and Civil Rights Leader but he was first a loving father. The paragraph that captured my attention was:"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."
These are my thoughts of Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.
