50th Anniversary of the “I Have a Dream” Speech

Today, August 28th, 2013, is the 50th Anniversary of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s speech known as “I Have a Dream” delivered at the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom on this day in 1963. For educational purposes, here is a link to the archived text*:
While we honor Dr. King and all those who struggled and continue to struggle for equality and justice, you might also think today about the following: What dreams do you have? For yourself? For our society? What are your goals and aspirations?
