I Have a Dream...

We all have a free day for a reason- to reflect on the thoughts of the great man Martin Luther King Jr. and his dreams for a better country.


A country that would not discriminate against color, race, gender, or religion.

A country whose citizens would not turn their backs on their neighbors because of that discrimination.

A country whose children would not cry to their fathers because they were teased and hurt.


We should all take this day to remember that we, as citizens of America- such a bountiful country, full of opportunities- carry on our shoulders the responsibility of accepting everyone and anyone, no matter what they look like or believe.


(and yes, that picture was photoshopped! Thank you, Karina, for letting me re-post it!)

Very thoughtful. I never do think about what this day really stands for.

My mom is full Puerto Rican and when she was a kid, some of her friends' parents wouldn't let them talk to her anymore because of it. I don't understand how people could be so cruel, especially to a child.

I look so white that I never even think about how this issue really could affect me..
