"I have a dream." Martin Luther King, Jr.'s immortal words,
delivered on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial,
have inspired Americans of all backgrounds since they were spoken on that historic day in 1963.
Dr. King's dream is our dream. It is the American dream.
It's the promise stitched into the fabric of our nation,
etched into the hearts of our people, and written into the soul of humankind.
It is the dream of the world where people are judged by who they are,
not how they look or where they come from.
It is the dream of a nation that offers life of dignity and hope to every American, regardless of color or creed.
It is the dream of a nation, faithful to its founding principles that we are all created equal.
