Idaho Human Rights Day/ Martin Luther King, Jr day – Famous quotes form MLK and others!


I took these quotes from Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes.   In Idaho we call it the Idaho Human Rights day.  Of course it is inspired by the great man.   Other Great Men and Women have spoke on equality and dreams….  Here it is right from the website.

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., I Have a Dream, 1963.

Martin Luther King Jr., I Have a Dream, 1963.

“All the citizens of a state cannot be equally powerful, but they may be equally free”
