Dreams of our fathers

Rev. Martin Luther King dreamed BIG for America! Excerpts of his speech below:
* I have a 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."
* I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
* I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

* I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
* I have a dream that one day, right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.

Mahatma Gandhi too dreamed BIG for India!
In his book " The India of my Dreams" he wrote:
* I shall work for an India in which the poorest shall feel that it is their country
* In the country's making the poorest have an effective voice
* India in which there shall be no high class and low class of people
* India in which all communities shall live in perfect harmony...
* There can be no room in such an India for the curse of untouchability or the curse of intoxicating drinks and drugs...
*Women will enjoy the same rights as men... This is the India of my dreams.

Are we there yet? Are you ready?!
