He also states, “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.” (King).
The Power of Emotions “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.” This is a well-known quote is the artwork of Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. whose speech at the “March on Washington” in 1963 rang throughout the United States of America.
