The kids and I began today, Martin Luther King Day, early, as usual. Curled up on the couch, we watched Dr. King’s “I have a dream” speech.
The kids asked to see the speech, and R even quoted some of it. They were surprised by the thousands of people who attended the speech–both white and black. They, I think, saw Dr. King as a man alone. The clip, however, showed them that his work was shared by many, and that his dream is for all of us.
