i have a dream
'...our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness...We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus, and nonbelievers. We are shaped by every language and culture, drawn from every end of this Earth. And because we have tasted the bitter swill of civil war and segregation and emerged from that dark chapter stronger and more united, we cannot help but believe that the old hatreds shall someday pass; that the lines of tribe shall soon dissolve; that as the world grows smaller, our common humanity shall reveal itself; and that America must play its role in ushering in a new era of peace...' Barack Obama
i just wanted to post that and say that i bet it will appear in civil rights movement textbooks alongside Martin Luthor King Jr. (one of my favourite historical figures) 'i have a dream' speech.
just wanted to say it first so that when i DOES happen i can be like 'yeeeah read my blog babeeee'
...well actally now that i think about it i highly doubt i will ever say 'babee' but my point still remains...
