Seventeen minutes in which the aspiration of one man are delivered briefly to the American poplulation.
Seventeen minutes of reflecting the suppressed will of millions.
Seventeen minutes of expressing the pride of belonging to where you belong,of refusing to deny the place you come from.
Seventeen minutes that are just a comma in the thick of battling for equality of rights but yet minutes that left such an impact on the American nation and inspired so many people outside Usa.
"I Have a Dream" is a speech written by he great leader,Martin Luther King in 1963.In this speach Martin Luther King speaks out directly for the millions of Afro-American people who are led by the common sense to the thinking that they are no differnt than other American citizens.Mr. King says what many probably didn't want to acknowledge-there is no justification for discrimination based on human race,how much more so in a country which is proud of its ideology which includes giving freedom and human rights to all of its citizens:"I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."
This speech emphasizes the absurd of treating someone with contempt only becasue of the colour of his skin.
Martin Luther King voiced in this speech what we all want to believe we live according to.We all want to be honest and good people and it's very disappointing to hear that we don't live by our principals although we're sure that we do.
This speech is a mirror in which the true face of Usa of those times is reflected.
I think we owe to Martin Luther King to remeber his legahy and to aspire to fulfill it as he would like us to do.
