Obama | Martin Luther King Jr - I Have A Dream

Monday, January 21, 2013

"I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."
Martin Luther King Jr.

"We will defend our people and uphold our values through strength of arms and rule of law. We will show the courage to try and resolve our differences with other nations peacefully – not because we are naïve about the dangers we face, but because engagement can more durably lift suspicion and fear."
Barack Obama

"Nonviolence means avoiding not only external physical violence but also internal violence of spirit. You not only refuse to shoot a man, but you refuse to hate him."
Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Gay brothers and sisters treated equal under law.”
Barack Obama

“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”
Martin Luther King Jr.

"The words I spoke today are not so different from the oath that is taken each time a soldier signs up for duty."

"With passion & dedication, let us answer the call of history and carry into an uncertain future that precious light of freedom." "You and I, as citizens, have the power to set this country’s course." "Let us answer the call of history, and carry into an uncertain future that precious light of freedom."

Barack Obama 2013
