After we listened to the cd, we discussed the changes that have happened since the speech. In talking about signs that read "Whites Only" our 7 year old said, "I would be tempted to kick those signs DOWN!" - he's a mover & a shaker who will fight for justice his whole life.
After visiting the National Archives, where we saw the Magna Carta, Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights, we went to the National Museum of American History and saw the Star Spangled Banner. To end our visit, we, along with hundreds of others, stopped by the Lincoln Memorial. Our oldest who is in fifth grade, and passionate about what is right and fair, was happy to carry on Martin Luther King Jr's message:
May it be true.
