I’d imagine that Martin Luther King would have hoped that 50 years later, the words he spoke would merely be the punctuation at the end of a shameful chapter in the history of humanity.
While some things have certainly changed, it’s sad that his dream is just as relevant now as it was in 1963.
If you’ve never heard this in its entirety, now is a good time.
tl;dr: Don’t raise your kids to be ignorant, bigoted assholes.
EDIT (8/29): Today, I found the image below and I must revise my previous statement. Dr. King’s dream is dead, and we are far too stupid to ever coexist peacefully. Fuck this planet.
