I have a dream that one day every valley shall be
exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low,
the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked
places will be made straight, and the glory of the
Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it
together. This is our hope. This is the faith with
which I return to the South. With this faith we will
be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone
of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform
the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful
symphony of brotherhood. With this faith we will be
able to work together, to pray together, to struggle
together, to go to jail together, to stand up for
freedom together, knowing that we will be free one
