A Great Speaker
A Great Speaker
I have chosen to write about Martin Luther King Jr. He was a true fighter, seeking equality for all mankind. In his speech titled, “I Have a Dream!” given on Aug 28, 1963, he states,
This is our hope. This is the faith with which I return to the South. With this faith, we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith, we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day ('I have a dream', New African, 2004, par. ...view middle of the document...

I started this paper talking about Martin Luther King Jr., however, after days of problems in my life, and dreading the idea of writing yet another paper on racism, prejudice, hate, and so forth, I finally prayed to God for guidance. Since I started college, almost every class I have taken has talked about racism or prejudice of some kind. I am studying to be a drug/alcohol counselor, but the only things I seem to be learning, is how to be racist. It is driving me to want to drink.

They all complain about how they are treated differently because of their race, color, nationality, and so on. I read ahead on the future assignments due for this class and it just made me feel more miserable.
Adam and Eve created the first sin, soon followed Cain and Abel. Sin, hate, prejudice, jealousy, racism, and so forth have been around since the beginning of time.
I was three-years-old when Martin Luther King Jr. made his famous speech. I studied it in school as well. I have learned about other famous philosophers and scholars throughout my lifetime. They all had great visions, words of encouragement, and dreams for a better world for us to live in. People listened with hope and admiration for these speakers to guide them to a better life.
