Recently Senator Clinton played down the value of "having a dream", saying to effect that having a dream won't move anything.
I wonder what JFK, or Dr. King would make of this very "telling" comment.
" I say to you today, my friends, we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I used to have a dream, but then I realized that dreams won't make anything. Even a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I had a dream that one day this nation would 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 had a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, would have been transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I had a dream that my four little children would one day have lived in a nation where they would not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I had a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification; one day right there in Alabama, little black boys and black girls would be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.
I had a dream today.
