Zoe's " I Have A Dream " Speech

In school today the kids were asked to read Dr. Martin Luther King's I have a Dream speech and then write what that means to them. I thought I would share her paragraph with you.

This is what it means to me.............

I believe that all human kind should be treated equally. Everyone deserves a buddy so they can stand up for injustice and fight for everyone's freedom. Everyone deserves a chance in life. I have been in and gone through many hard devastating times with my family,but we never stop giving up hope.We have been through death, sickness, injuries and more. Everybody should stand up for their rights and everybody else's rights. Doing that together,helping eachother through death,and many more things like taking a stand for people who need you. America would be a better place if we all take a stand.If we take a stand it will be a better world.

That is what it means to me. I love our world. Take your stand today.Help your nation.

thank you for sharing her words. That is so wise, if we could all follow the leads of children, the world could potentially heal itself. Zoe is a special girl and I am so proud of her! We love you Zoe and thanks for taking a stand yourself.

I believe that the main problem in this world is that not enough people stand up for their beliefs. I am proud of your for standing firm in your beliefs and convictions & I LOVE U--Grandpa

What a lovely essay. In Houston we have a radio show called "This I Believe" that comes on the radio every day. I can see Zoe reading her essay on the radio and inspiring people to be better and do more for their world. Zoe, you are so talented! Keep writing and don't give up! Love you!
