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?

a dreamy place…

      Fantastic SHot, very peaceful, great speach, as I have always said if you can't dream then you might as well find a hole and bury yourself, beacuse everyone needs to dream life is too short

      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.
