Sadly, in comparison to Dr. King's dream, I think there is a "group" of individuals in the world that are just beginning their fight for equal rights in our society. These individuals are not separated by color, sex, age or economic status. I'd like to see Dr. King's "Dream" full filled in this way...
"I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
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."
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia [people living with disabilities and people without disabilities] will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood...
I have a dream that [children with special needs] will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by [their disability] but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today. "
When I read "content of there character" I nearly started crying. I wish wish people could look into the heart and not just the outward appearance. What a different world that would be!
