Martin Luther King


Martin Luther King never expected to be a leader. All he wanted was for black people like him to be treated fairly in America. But what began as a small protest finally became a revolution...
and I wonder...
How is Obama going to lead the Americans?
Is he going to fulfill Martin Luther King's dream?
...remember these famous words?
"I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of slave owners will be able to sit down together at th table of brotherhood...I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by colour of their skin but by the content of their character."
".....and when we let freedom ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing..
Free at last! Free at last!
Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"
