Dream Big: 50 Years of Inspiration



 Fifty years ago on August 23, before a crowd of more than 250,000 spectators in Washington D.C., Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., set aside his prepared speech and spoke from the heart, "...I have a dream..."

Today we celebrate King's birthday, the civil rights he lived and died for;
 and the impromptu speech that inspired a nation.

 Let's keep dreaming, one person can make a difference.
