On October 14 - 1964,
American civil rights movement leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr becomes the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.
One year before he said: "Let us not wallow in the valley of despair. I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, 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 the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slaveowners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood. I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state, sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today..."
45 years later, do you have a dream?
Tying that photo to what Rev. King said is the perfect match. Very good work. I see lots of photos that leave questions about the photographer's feelings, but not this one. I wish more photographers would leave comments to their work.
Happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true.”
Leon Joseph Cardinal Suenens quotes ( Archbishop of Malines-Brussels 1904-1996)
