I have a dream


Sam was so excited today when he came home from school. He has been learning about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in school. His class ended their week long discussion with watching Dr. King's speech "I have a dream". Sam told us that he thought the speech was awesome and that when Dr. King spoke his voice boomed. He was amazed at the amount of people who attended the speech. Sam and Bama swapped historical stories that each of them know and then Sam was off to the computer to watch the speech on YouTube. He was at the computer for a while but I didn't realize how long. He told me tonight that he watched the speech four times. I am so proud that at the age of 9 he understands the importance of the event. He told me and Bama that if it weren't for Dr. King then Barack Obama wouldn't be president. I am always amazed at Sam's wisdom and the depth of his understanding of the world. He makes me proud!!!
