Words can never die
While one’s time on this earth is limited, their impact could be forever. This is no greater amplified by when MLK spoke to the nation at the capital in 1963. To this day people still use his speech of a reminder of how important it is to use words to better the world. Even 100 years from now people will know who MLK was because sometimes even when someone is gone their words will never be forgotten
In 1963 Martin Luther King Jr marched along the capital with thousands of others to protest racial injustice in this country. On that day he gave his famous ‘I have a dream’ speech, which proclaims that unity and treating every human being with dignity will always triumph over hate.
I have heard this speech many times, and time after time I get goosebumps because this speech is so powerful and with a message so strong it reminds me of the true power words can have. While this speech inspired me and many others, it also comes with a bit of bitterness because the same thing MLK wanted 50 years ago is still being fought over in this present day. Only a few times in my life have I been really touched by someone’s words, this being one of them. The world will forever be inspired by MLK’s words and while he unfortunately was killed a couple of years later, his message will always be in the minds of many.
In the end, the great figures of history have come and gone and while they may not be here physically there words will always live on in our memory.
