Reflections on the 50th Anniversary March on Washington

Standard

August 28, 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of the historic March on Washington and Dr. Martin Luther King’s speech, I Have a Dream.  While looking at news coverage of the event yesterday, I learned that his iconic speech was not originally on  the agenda, he planned to speak about something else.  Maybe it was divine intervention, but  I am so glad he said those words.  Fifty years later, some aspects of it have been fulfilled,  but it has yet to be fully realized.  There is still work to do.  It is not too late to fulfill Dr. King’s dream. On August 28,  let’s think of one thing that we all can do, individually or collectively to fulfill the dream.
