Yesterday was Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. day. After watching a video clip about Dr. King and reading through parts of his "I have a dream" speech, I had my students complete their own short "I have a dream" statement. I didn't realize how much thought my students would put into writing their 'speeches,' however it was one little girl's writing that touched me deeply.
It reads..."I have a dream that one day everybody would have happiness in their lives so the world would live in peace with others caring for each other. Also that one day children from the orphanage would get adopted and have a family so they could be happy like everyone else in the world."
