MLK's "I have a Dream." speech and why you should listen today...

January 11, 2018 Kylie Clayborne

My oldest son was obsessed with MLK's I have a Dream speech for a bit.  He was only 7 at the time, but he was learning about MLK in his 1st grade class, so one morning before school I showed him the video of his famous march in Washington. I sat there watching his little face and body not sure what he was thinking or what he would have to say about it all, but I could tell he was moved by Martin's courage and love.  MLK's booming voice moved him and it moved me that day!  If you haven't listened to that speech in a while; go back, watch and listen to his words...and then shoot me a quick email about your experience. You can FEEL his conviction and it. is. moving.  You can't help but be inspired by this man!
