The true meaning of our creed

August 28, 2008 at 1:30 am (Current affairs)

Tonight I find myself thinking of Martin Luther King Jr. and the “I Have a Dream” speech, which I remember watching on television in the year 1963.

In particular, I am thinking of one line:

“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.'”

For those of us who came of age during the Civil Rights struggles of the 1960’s, this is an especially amazing and gratifying moment. Whatever happens next, history has been made at the Democratic Convention tonight!
