Comment: My dream is that the trouble makers,i/e Sharpton and Jackson should stay out of race relations, leave,let the races work it out.These two depend on sensationalism for their livelihood,so the more chaos they can stir up, the more the races will spar, Rational people can work toward a resolution barring, interference.

Comment: I have a dream of equal rights for all and an end to the countless acts of hatred and senseless violence that occur every day. Acceptance, kindness, patience and tolerance are the key. Reality television and social media are so far removed from what society should be, yet those are the examples of “reality” that our children see and emulate every day. We should all be leading by example and modeling acceptance, patience, kindness and tolerance. Only by being the change you wish to see in the world, will the world ever change.

Comment: I have a dream is not enough it was just a starting point. My prayer is that one day people will “WAKE UP FROM THE DREAM” and make living in this country the reality it was meant to be for all. That is my prayer for my children and my grandchildren today………

Comment: I dream of a day when people can accept each other for exactly who they are, and for exactly who they are not. And that we all live on earth together in peace and harmony as human beings. One species. One world. The people of Earth.

Comment: My dream is that we will not give up on the dream. That younger generations will see that to achieve an ideal it takes constant vigilence and work. That people will see that civil rights issues are not limited to race, but extend to gender, orientation, education, religion, and income. The struggle for equality is never over.
Comment: Who could have a better dream than that of Martin Luther? I was a very white, very little girl living in the city of Richmond when this incredible man made the speech that would certainly change the world. I felt as though FINALLY someone had the guts to stand up for the horrible things that were happening to black people all across the US.
In the sixties, when the old black men on the bus stood up for me to sit down I said ‘NO, you sit there!’ But they would always refuse, for the punishment of sitting while a white person stood was too great a risk. I could cross Broad street to ‘their side’ to see a movie, but they did not dare cross over to ‘our side’. My heart ached for these people who were so wrongly treated, and though Martin Luther King said it so grandly and powerfully, it was bitter sweet in that such an honorable man would be gunned down for doing the RIGHT thing.
My dream would be for the world to follow Martin Luther King’s dream in our hearts and minds, and not only on paper that the law requires us to do so.

Comment: The world today needs more honesty from its leaders and Governments, all answers and solutions are not going to be popular but you have to be willing to do what is honest and right for the greater good. That is my biggest dream.
