Patch Asks: What's Your Dream?

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and his "I Have a Dream" speech, we want to know what you hope for the world.

In 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream for America.

Almost 50 years later and just two days after King would have turned 83, the nation is inaugurating President Barack Obama into his second term in office.

On that August day, King said:

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 today.

Watch the full speech here.

So what is your dream for this nation? What do you hope America will be like in another 50 years? What do you hope for your children and grandchildren?

Finish this sentence in the comments section below— "I have a dream that one day _______________"
