"On August 28, 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. stood at the Lincoln Memorial and admonished America to return to its First Principles. In his I Have a Dream Speech, he announced his 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."' He longed to see a day when all 'would be guaranteed the "unalienable Rights" of "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."' Dr. King did not talk about remaking America. His dream was one which, in his words, was 'deeply rooted in the American dream.' It hearkened back to the principles upon which our country was founded. It was not a rejection of our past, but a vision of hope based on the principles of our past."
