Today we heard the ''I have a dream'' speech by Dr.Martin Luther King.He wanted freedom for all races. I think he changed the world for the blacks.Dr.Martin Luther King would love the world now.Because of him all races are treated the same.When we celebrate MLK I'm going to think about his speech and how he dreamed that black and white got along.It was really cool that he stood on the Lincoln steps.
