In 1963 I had the honor of watching Dr. King’s, “I have a dream,” speech live. I remember turning on my little 17 inch black and white television and watching. The speech contains many references to 1960’s current events and attitudes which I am not sure the current generation fully understands. Often we do not realize the significance of a historical event until years later. I certainly did not have an appreciation for the importance of the speech then as I do now. This speech coalesced the Civil Rights Movement and became the focal point of the movement.

I am sorry that I did not participate in the civil rights movement as much as I should have. I was off fighting Communism and thought that was the more important issue of the times. As old men do, we often get lost in our thoughts and memories. In my mind I have apologized to Dr. King for my lack of participation in the civil rights movement. He was a kind, gentle man and I think he has forgiven me

The speech by Martin Luther King Jr. was very powerful. He used a very passionate and emotional tone. This is because he was passionate about civil rights. He used a lot of pauses while speaking to drive his point’s home. I had never listened to this speech before but I am glad I did today. I do not think too much about racism since it is not as common as it was back then. This speech reflects a man who used his voice and ideas to change the world. It had a huge impact then, and it is still referred to today because of how good it was.

I believe that the most important thing that Dr. King said in his "I have a dream" speech was that devotees of the civil rights movement would not be satisfied as long as Negroes are "victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality." I believe that this is the most important thing the Dr.King said because till this day Negroes are still victims of police brutality all throughout America. Because of this Negroes are still trying to be treated equally to no avail. Yes they have a lot more freedom than they had back when Dr.King gave this speech but it is crazy that they are still mistreated by police after all this time.

In my opinion Matin Luther King speach had many meaningful things that needed to be said in it. My favorite part of the speech was when it talked about how one day he wants to see his african american children getting along with white children. The most important points that he made where the ones that had to do with putting an end to slavery. This is what i found was the most important parts of his speech.

The most important part of the “I have a dream” speech by Martin Luther King to me is how he talked about his children how he wishes them to not be judged by the color of their skin but by their character. This line really speaked out to me by it reflecting how people are judged instantly by appearance and not by as he said their character. I really admire Dr. King by him being able to stand and forgive the abuses back then towards black people. Being able to fight back but not with violence. The main purpose of his speech was of how he wishes to bring everyone together as brothers and sisters. Being able to make a change with their protest and have them not turn into physical violence. But what I admire the most is that he in any circumstance that he faced he didn’t give up.

The most important line that Martin Luther King Jr. said was near the end. He said that one day both white and black men will join together and say that they are free. This is important because Martin Luther King Jr. wants everyone to be equal. The whole speech itself is good for our country because if this speech was never given, maybe today would've been the same as when the speech was given.

Martin Luther King Jr gave his speach to many of the people in poverty, and his race as well which are african americans how ever it was not just towards them it was to show many others such as the whites that we can all be equal and we will not settle until we are more than equal because we have been through so much.they hope to be all be equal and they will do it without hate because they are not animals and treat others how they are treated. Martin luther king shows there is too much hate in this world and not enough love.

I think that most important thing he said in his "I have a dream" speech is when he says that he has dream that white and black kids will hold hands together.

Now there is types races working with each other to make United States a better place.

In my perspective I believe that the most important thing in his speech is his parralellism . I say that because I think the fact that he is so repetetive with his "I have a dream" really helps him get his point across to his audience about his intent and ideology over african american rights in the U.S. Another thing that is also important is that he doesn't only talk about african americans having their rights but he includes all of gods children as we are all created equally and I believe that really made an impact in white people's perspective in the way they saw his ideology .

In Martin Luther King Jr's speech, I have a dream, he spoke with such emotion and determination that it would be incredibily hard to not feel his pain. This was the first time I had heard the full speech and I was absolutely captivated. There were several things that King highlights about segregation and opression but one thing that stood out to me the most was when he quotes "We hold these thruths to be self-evident that all men are created equal". I believe this is very important for our country especially because although we have come a long way from segregated times, it seems as if we are stepping back all over again. History repeats itself and I feel as if with all this hatred and "who's more superior" way of thinking, we will soon go back to the opression that seperated us all.

What I believed was one of the most important things I've heard from the speech had to be "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 thought this was amazing because this was the common issue of people, judgment. Everybody even now still judge others by their color instead of actually judging them by their personality.

I had never heard the "I Have a Dream Speech". Listening to it today I learned how passionate Martin Luther King was about the Civil Rights Movements. He used his voice to speak his mind on what was right and to make a change. Dr. King wanted to see his children get along with other white children.He did not want people to be judged based off the color of their skin, rather by their character and their personalities. He used his speech to fight back, but he fought back without violence.

In Martin Luther King Jr. very powerful speech, He used a very passionate and emotional diction as well as creating a very powerful atmosphere. This is because he was very into what he fought for. His punctuation created emphasis in his points. I have listened to this speech a lot of times; the first times I got excited how this history changed many things. Yet, after so many times in listening it I have grown it out, also my views on racism have changed since every day we live injustice in the streets making this speech is worth nothing since nothing has really changed. Instead of being segregated black and browns are being shot down. They are not even having time to react to the injustice since they are being shot down. This speech reflects a man who used his voice and ideas to change the world, yet this world has not gotten better if not worse to how it was. It had a huge impact then, but now it seems its fading away making it hard for non whites to be treated justly. even though this speech it is still referred to today because of how good it was, I feel it should be implemented in society and not just remember this speech as a glorious day if not implement it and keep the memories by acting upon it and not simply mentioning.

While Dr. Martin Luther King’s speech was a motivating force as a whole toward all citizens of the United states, the most important aspect to take into consideration is that if blacks are not treated as equals to whites, it is not valid to say we live in a free country. The Deceleration of Independence states that all men have certain unalienable rights, therefore if these rights are not allowed to be exercised, we are going against our own values. Whether we are participating in racism or watching it happen before our eyes and not putting it to a halt, we can not be considered a unified country until all our discrimination, racism, and hatred has ended. Therefore, in order for everyone to experience equality, we must listen to Dr. King's speech and treat each other as brothers and sisters rather than view ourselves as enemies.

The most important part of Dr.King's speech is the way that he tells the community to not hate for what has happened to African Americans. He says that giving into hate is what will be there downfall. This is important because resorting to violence will give no help to their movement at all. He also brings up the point that its not valid to hate all whites as some joined them at that speech. Its important because its emphasizing that despite what you look like its unjustified to be discriminated against and character should be what is judged not what you look like.

During the speech i found that Dr. King was saying how he would not stop until the negro kids of the future do not feel like they can do anything or go anywhere because of the signs that say white only. What i also think that is important was when he state all men are created equal. it shows the love in how Dr. king does not hate white. People he wants everyone to come together and unite. Dr.king spreads love and doesn't want people to hate because like he said hate is a disease. i think that so important for our new generation and the future ones as well.

What I believe the most important part of his speech to be was the times he stated how he would not be satisfied so long as an African American was enslaved or oppressed. If we look at today, it is rarely happening in today's time compared to the past, and it really show's the dedication the civil rights movement had and the progress we have made as a country. We move forward and progress to live up to our country's creed "that all men are created equal".

The most important part of Dr.Martin Luther King Jr's speech would be pretty much the main idea of his speech. Dr.King's speech was to discuss the topic of freedom and justice, not just for the African American population, but for everyone living in the United States. But the part of the speech that best illustrated that would have to be the part where Dr.King says that one day the children of former slaves and slave owners would sit together at the table of brotherhood.He also goes on the say that one day his own children, as well as those from races and religions would be able to join hands and proudly say they are all free.That no one in the United States would face discrimination or injustice for the color of their skin. These parts of the speech made many people realize that it could be possible for every citizen of the United States to be equal and free. It was also an important part because it gave people the hope and determination to make a change and to give all races,religions,genders, the ability to be free and equal.

Martin Luther King's speech is a powerful message he gave to Americans. Not only did he explained the oppression Negroes were experiencing but he also encouraged his audience to fight for equality among the country. My favorite part from his speech is his conclusion where we exposes the dream he has by using anaphoras when saying ''I have a dream’’ because it transmitted hope to Americans and he clearly explained how equality was an essential right among the country in order to create a powerful nation. By reading King's speech I was able to sympathize and appreciate more the liberty and equality American currently have in comparison to years ago.

For those who have yet to hear the speech I strongly recommend that they take the time out of their day to listen to it because it will bring them joy and reassurance of a brighter future. Dr. King was a very srtong man with very strong words, the way he gave his speech was unlike any other speech. One could tell how strong the tone of his speech was, with every long pause, with every single word, with the emphasis of each sentence, he changed the world that day and for that he deserves to have such respect.

In the speech " I have a dream" by Martin Luther King Jr. I can tell he is very passionate about what he is tlking about. He uses alot of emotion.Trying to get his point across to the crowd .Dr.King wants everyone to understand that just because some people are colored they shoudnt be treated diffrent from non colored people.In the speech he was determind to have some type of change. Some type of libirty for colored people. That is important to me because I think everyone should be treated as equals. Because King thought love should be stronger than anger.He wanted all the hate to stop and change. That was his dream.

In Dr. Kings "I Have a Dream Speech", Dr King spoke loud and clearly of what needs to be intended at that moment. King's tone of emotion and passion aided everyone's attention to some what feel what King was feeling. King gave evidence of the what had happened in the past to all black men. In which he used pathos, in order to fully grab everyone's attention. I think the way that King presented the horrendous situations of the past of all black men, had even the whites in "ahh".

After listening to "I Have a Dream Speech", I realize how Dr.King really did make an impact to change America. His whole speech is important because he outlines all the hatred that African Americans face due to their skin color. I'm glad that Martin Luther King took part in the civil rights movement because I think if it wasnt for his speech we would still see segregation in some parts of our country. His speech is very emotional and deep because it illustrates the life of people who face oppression.

I believe Martin Luther King's speech of "I Have a Dream" has greatly shaped the American life today. To me, the most important part was when he brought up the unalienable rights that each American is entitled to. This is most important because it proves to those who go against Dr. King's word that people of color were discriminated from American laws even though they were citizens. I believe that without this point being brought up, the majority of the white society would not take Dr. King's speech into much consideration. With that being said, we would not have the type of society we have today.

The most important think in "I Have a Dream Speech" by Dr. King was about blacks being free from the opresstion by the whites. He supports his claim by stating the fact that most blacks are mess treated and want to be equal like the whites. Dr. King states that most blacks people can't go to certin places because of the color of their skin. Dr. King wants equal rights for his people, by using non-voilents and loving the enemy. Dr. King speechs is one key reason why we have the civil rights.

Jacob Miranda Mr.Schneeman Government 14 Febuary, 2018 “I Have a Dream Speech” Reflection In Dr. Kings speech “I Have a Dream” he delivers the message that the African-Amercian community will not be satisfied until they are granted their unalienable rights. I think the most important thing from this speech is when Dr. King calls for unity regardless of race, religion or creed. This is important to our country because a nation cannot function if there is a division between its people, there should be no discrimination as we are all equal, men and women, blacks and whites, Jews or Catholics. Dr. King’s message and ideas will forever play a role in our world.

The most important part of the "I Have a Dream Speech" by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, is the part where he addresses his dreams. In his speech he repeats multiple time the phrase "I Have a Dream" followed by his hopes for the future. I think this part is really important because it shows the change he wishes to see that should happen. The audience was able to believe that we will come to those dreams eventually. For me, that part really spoke out to me and now that I am in the future, I am glad to see it happen.

Based on Martin Luther King's, "I Have a Dream Speech" he strived for equality amongst every race. During this period, society was heavily-soiled with racism. Dr.King wanted to establish a revolution where everyone was free from segregation and discrimination. In a section of his speech Dr. King mentioned, "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." This quote depicts the determination that Dr.King obtained. He emphasizes that as a whole, our country must rise above the existing hatred and become united. We must not determine one's value based on the color of their skin. He reminded everyone of their true worth. This is important for me because it is unfair to judge someone based on assumptions. Dr. King strived to combat the implemented beliefs of society, and he succeeded. Equality is an important aspect of our life, because everyone deserves equal opportunities.

In Dr.King's speech, he talked about how important it was for equality. He strongly believed that all men were created equally, and wanted colored people to be treated with respect. African Americans were treated very poorly back then, and were often the outcast from everyone, just because of the way they looked. Today, there is still no equality, I believe African Americans are still not treated with 100% respect from others. You can still see racism going on.

The most important part about Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream Speech" was when he was talking about how even after the Emancipation Proclamation and after slavery was abolished, African Americans still were not free. They were segregated and were treated as outcasts in comparison to whites. They lived in poverty and were heavily discriminated against. The part that touched me the most was that Dr. King promoted kindness and gentleness. He said that there was no need for bitterness and cruelty. He forgave white people for their wrong doings and just wanted to see a change. He also said that he wants to see a day where we are not judged by the color of our skin but by our character. I feel like this should still apply today but with cases such as gender, religion, sexual orientation, and even ethnicity still. I feel like judgement plays a huge role in American society and we let common prejudice make our decisions for us.

I think the most important part of the speech is towards the end when he first states "I have a dream.." and continues to repeat over and over again in different variations of what his dream is. I find this part of his speech the most important because the repetition is very powerful and moving as he describes his dream and wishes for equality of races. It is also important to our country because many decades later segregation is now an item of the past and African Americans are free to intergrate with everyone else.

I think the most important section of Dr.King's speech is when he had went into description of letting freedom ring. To allow freedom to ring from the north. Let it ring from the south. Let it ring from the east. Let it ring from the west. I believe what he is trying define is that he wants people to be able to express themselves at the fullest and not to be limited from anything. He did not care if you were a black man or if you were a white man. As long as you are a fellow citizen of the United States then go ahead and allow your freedom to be released and let it run wild. Because in the end all that matters is that this country can depend on one another. because "United we stand, but divided we fall."

In Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s Speech, "i have a dream", one of the most important things that stood out to me was when he was talking about how their protests should not revolve around violence. If the African Americans wanted to be equal they should act like civilized human beings. After all of the torment that the African Americans went through, his big thing was that no matter how tough things got for them, to not act out of anger and spite, but to forgive those who did them wrong. Dr. King also believed that at that point in time, his people were being told to wait, and that their time of equality will come if they are patient. He said that they have waited long enough and deserved their basic human rights, demands, and needs to be met.

I think this is the most important it is something that the government passed but it was granted only towards the white people and it wasn't fair because of how can the government passed something that clearly states all men and have the government not actually follow through we giving everyone unalienable rights.

Personally, I believe that the most important thing that Dr. Martin Luther King said in his "I Have a Dream" Speech was that despite the way African Americans felt towards White people because of all the segregation and hate, they would not act in violence. Dr. King says, "We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence". Dr. King has influenced all African Americans by telling them that hate does not fix hate. He says, however, that forgiveness can cure the hate. Dr. King does not want African Americans to hate White people for what they did, but instead forgive them and strive to live in a community where they will all be able to accept each other.

The "I Have a Dream Speech" by Martin Luther King Jr. is a big reason for the equality we have in the world today. It has helped us advance together as a society and realize that every man is equal. The most important line to me had to be "both white and black men will join together and say that they are free." This line is significantly important because it describes the importance of America and what our responsibility as Americans is. This responsibility is,to be kind to one another and not take the freedom given to us by our country for granted. We as people need to work together for a better future and society and keep improving on forward as Americs.

In Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s speech, you can tell that he was very passionate about what he was preaching. In my opinion, the most important part was when he was talking about how we can never be satisfied if black people are still victims of police brutality. Also towards the end when he talks about everyone of all races being able to come together and be free. I think these parts are most important because although we have come a long way since the speech was given, it is still very relevant today. We hear countless news reports and videos online showing another black person getting killed by police. Although our country has improved, there is still prejudice in the country and there is no way we can come together and unite if it still exists. All Dr. King wanted was for everyone to be equal and if he would have never given his "I Have a Dream" speech, our country may have had a different outcome.

I think it was very important when Dr. King said "there will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the Negro is granted his citizenship rights" because even after in the Declaration of Independence was written and guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness to both blacks and whites; there was still no change and they were still treated as if they weren't worth anything.This was very important to our country because it shows how even though we talked about everyone being equal, there was still discrimination.

Dr. King speaks of rightful and wrongful deeds,of dignity and discipline, of redemption and justice, and that to me really stands out in his "I have a dream speech". I believe that one of the most important things to recognize from this speech is Dr. King's selfless words of desiring to gain freedom without this form of resentment, hate, and violence towards the whites. This sort of "dignity and discipline" is what brought king to achieving the goals he set for the American people, it's very important to note that if not taking this route, and seeking the side of revenge and redemption, things might have not turned out the way they did for the American people who were being discriminated against. Thanks to Dr. King's rightful morals, we are able to live today amongst the various kind hearts and intelligent minds.

I believe that the most important part from "I have a dream" speech is the last part, because it is where he reveal his goals by changing slavery and discrimination. His last words on his speech were too deep for so many people in that time, the last part it is when people could feel his support and his desires to end slavery with all the negro communities. Therefore, he wanted to make people treat the negros as they treated other people with the same equality. It has a huge impact towards slavery, I think they could finally feel that there was hope to be free and to have the same opportunities as other people as well. I wish I would have be able to participate on his movemnts to end the discrimination and slavery as well.

I think the most important part of the speech is when he calls back to the declaration of independence. This is very important because when the declaration was written all African-Americans were slaves, but now he's using lines from it as a free citizen who is being oppressed by his supposed protectors. I like that section of the speech because it really demonstrates how far America has come as a country now allowing every citizen, no matter their skin color, to be looked at in the same light.

The part that I believe to be the most important part of the " I Have a Dream Speech" was when he mentioned the unalienable rights.

They also stated that all men were created equal but they believed that one race was better than another making not everyone. equal

Reflection

After listening to Martin Luther King Jr's "I Have a Dream Speech", I've concluded that the most important concept in the speech was regarding the idea of fighting for freedom with dignity rather than hatred and bitterness - "In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred". Of all quotes, this stood out to me the most because I believe that this doesn't just highlight the type of person that Dr.King was, but also conveys the type of society that we should aim to be. Not only is this idea important during the time the speech was given, but it's also important for modern day society as it outlines the type of behavior we should have in order to become a united nation and to work together to fight for the injustices that make up our list of grievances.

I believe that in the speech there are two important parts. The first part would be morally important to me. I think it is important when he says that we should not reflect our struggles with violence. I though this is important because if everyone acts with violence to show their struggles, no one would survive and probably most of the people would be killed. The second thing i thought was important was when he said at the end how we should be able to do things together instead of segregated. I believe this part is important to our country because every men is created equal and every men should be allowed the same freedom. Just because someone is different than you, does not mean that they are worth less. To me, the whole speech is important but these two things are what I consider to be really important.

After discussing Dr.Kings, "I Have a Dream Speech" the line that stuck out to me most was when he stated, "I have a dream that one day little black boys and girls will be holding hands with little white boys and girls". This was most important because not only does it show the never ending amount of hope he had, but as well as the level of purity and forgiveness he was capable of reaching. Despite all that the African American race had to struggle through, Dr.King still acknowledged that he wanted the best for both races, not only his. His determination and kindness is what made his nonviolent movement most powerful.

Martin Luther King Jr. was a social activist and Baptist minister who played a key role in the American civil rights movement from the mid-1950s until his assassination in 1968. Martin Luther King Jr.inspired so many people around the world by standing up for segregation racial laws. MLK stood up to prevent segregation and racism. In Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, is a public speech delivered by American civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom on August 28, 1963, in which he calls for an end to racism in the United States and called for civil and economic rights.In the speech, the most important part to me was when MLK stated "black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, “Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!” This is important to our country, because we need equality in this world. We choose who we want to be and no one should be judged at all. Whether you are White, Black, Mexican, Asian, etc. we are all the same with just different opinions.

I believe that one of the most important things Dr. Kind said was "Continue to work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive" because it gives explains how all the suffering African American people have gone through it shows that they are a lot stronger. Also explains how they're faith will help them get through everything.

In his "I Have a Dream" speech, Martin Luther King Jr made many solid and civil arguments. What stood out to me most was his belief that Black people, more specifically Black Americans, will not be seen as equals as long as police brutatlity stands, clearly because this is them being treated unjustly. I found this relevant as even today police brutality is still very much in existence. Now and then, cops have been given too much power in an already corrupt system. Ther constant abuse of power and hiring of racist peoples allows such to continue. Centrally, I felt this point that MLK made stuck with me as it shows that though some progress for racial equality has been made, the process is far from over. Additionally, since police brutality involves a system given too much power, I realized over time that it is much more than just cops, and our government and justice system is extremely flawed.

In my opinion, the most important part of Dr. King's "I Have a Dream" speech is when he states the fact that, while African-Americans must continue to fight for racial justice, they must not develop a sense of hatred toward white people. I feel that this is very important for our country, especially now, because militancy is not the proper way to make a positive change in society. Militancy inspires more militancy. Thus, if the participants of the civil rights movement acted violent and spiteful, then they would have been no better than the racist people that oppressed and mistreated them. The answer to hate is not more hate, but rather peace and forgiveness. In regards to today, this part of the speech is very relevant because there is a great lack of unity among people with different political and societal beliefs, and people are responding to this growing divide with spiteful words and violence. These acts of aggression are not helping and unifying the country but rather doing the opposite. Therefore, Martin Luther King's claim that people should march forward with dignity and not bitterness is very prominent as it shows society how to justly and effectively bring about change.

Dr. King had many important things to say in his "I Have a Dream Speech." The thing I found that was most important is when he was saying that he would like former slave owners sons and former slaves sons to sit together at the table of brotherhood. It is really powerful to think that he could get past all of the wrongs that have been commited and break bread with those that wronged him and his people.

Something that I thought was important about Martin Luther King Jr's speech was that he kept saying "I have a dream." This is his main saying of the speech in which he repeats multiple times. He had dreams and hopes for equality of all races. This saying of the speech really got to the people of those times because many of them could not speak for themselves because they felt as if they would get punished for speaking up. Dr.King speaking up really gave them the hope that things were finally going to change for the better. Even though racism is still somewhat alive it isn't as bad as it was in the 1900's. This is very important to me as a black female of the 20th century, I have realized that I should never take life for granted because I have it easier than my older generation of my family.

In Martin Luther King's, "I Have A Dream" speech, he focused mainly on the racism that occurred throughout the years and how it was all going to change. I think the most important thing that Dr. King said in his speech was when he said "Let Freedom Ring" for all the states and how it would allow more freedom within those states. This speech was important for our country because it allowed Dr. King to express his feelings for racism and to command that the racism throughout the country should be fixed. This speech is important to me because it shows a different view point on racism and how it affected a lot of people in the past years.

Dr. King emphasizes the urgent idea of "now." This ideology is significant because it contradicts the oppressors who believed his movement was unwise and untimely. Dr. King's era was a time of great civil right progress, encompassing boycotts, protests, and marches. These nonviolent messages were still believed to disturb the peace, but these acts were necessary for the colored community to advance. For many years, colored people were segregated and oppressed; Dr. King believed that "now" it is time for the world to move forward as a whole. My father always told me, "there's no time like the present," and this is a motto I have to live by. Procrastination is a disease and it harms the people around you. When given the opportunity, it is important to seize it or it may not be presented again. Now is the best time to be alive, especially in our country. We must live in the now, to mature for the future.

In my opinion, the paragraph that is the most important in Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” Speech is the paragraph that has the repeated phrase, “We can never be satisfied…”. The repetition of this phrase emphasizes towards those who keep asking, “ ‘When will you be satisfied?’”, that the Negro community won’t stop what they are demonstrating until they achieve their goal, earning their civil rights. King also gives examples of what needs to be changed like police brutality and segregation so the people can understand how they are being treated and justice needs to be brought.

One definining moment of the speech that really stood out to me was when Dr. King said "And they[white people] have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom." I believe that this is significant because it reflects upon the idea that african americans and white people have to learn to live with one another, peacefully, in order to prosper as a country. This idea wasn't so apparent to many white people at the time but it was necessary to realize that "their[white people's] freedom is inextricably bound to our[black people's] freedom". But this can only be achieved through nonviolence and the mentaily of forgiveness and togetherness. And that mentality can't be just for now or for the the short future, but forever. The real question is... if Dr. King were alive today, what would he think of how far we've come as a nation? would he be proud? Would he be satisfied? Considering the constant everyday struggles that African Americans live with in today's world, although better than before, no... i dont believe he'd be satisfied.

In my personal opinion I believe that the most powerful words and parts of his speech resided in his paraphrasing to the Declaration Of Independence.

Even so he continues to speak of racial equality.

Based on Martin Luther King Jrs. "I Have a Dream" speech given on August 28, 1963. I believe that Martin Luther King said many different and revolutionary quotes. One of the main quotes which I believed was most important was when he 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." The main reason I find so much importance within this quote would be the fact that living in this day of age and generation. All of us humans strive for nothing more but to be equal and have equality. Especially back then, having to deal with segregation and the attempt to treat others differently based upon their own skin color or ethnicity. Although nowadays living in this generation and things are different now. I still think that this quote will be one of the most important quotes throughout history because there is one thing us humans look towards the most. And that is equality.

The one important subject I took from Dr.Kings, "I Have a Dream Speech" was that he kept referring to the founding fathers words on how there would be equality and freedom of speech for all people who inhabited the country. That was until slavery ended and at that time, modern politicians wouldn't apply that to people of all races/religions. The affect of King's speech was a major wake-up call to the entire country on how poorly the mistreatment was. As a result of that, the nation-wide epidemic led to the ending of segregation and calmed racism. In our modern society today there is still racism, however we've come so far as a country and for that we partially have Dr. King to thank for.

The part of Dr.King’s speech in which he seeks for freedom without violence and obtaining that with the help of others is important because he calls for action from his audience, but does it peacefully. The metaphor he uses is effective as he says that “we must not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking the cup of bitterness and hatred” which means that the desired freedom will not be reached by trying to obtain it through a negative and violent way. Even through all the struggles he and African Americans have faced from whites he still believes in a nonviolent approach. This is an approach of good discipline which will be more effective. Dr. King doesn’t want hate to arise from trying to get freedom, he reminds everyone that “we cannot walk alone” because this is a problem for all to go through. This situation must be fixed together, as brothers and sisters. He believes in equality of all, and the same respect for each individual, defending the strong and effective leader Martin Luther was.

Upon listening to the most eminent civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream," speech, it is evident that he is motivated to do anything in order to receive racial equality all around the nation. In my perspective the most significant line within the speech is when he recite, "Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice," this line calls to attention the fact that minorities should not have to wait any longer to receive their long lost equality. Martin Luther King Jr. was a highly intelligent man that spoke about topics that not many brought to light, especially from African Americans. Not only did he bring up topics relating to racial inequality, he cited multiple US heroes such as Abraham Lincoln, without this famous "I Have a Dream" speech, the world of racial equality for African American and other minorities might not be what it is today.

(...) Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.” this extremely emphasizes the message he is trying to convey through his speech which is racial equality for everyone. Through this he brought great attention to his message calling an end to racism and a demand for civil rights in the United States. Moreover he pointed out the current conflicts African American battled with and the bad prejudice that came within them for the color of their skin. Additionally he highlights the unfair struggles his people had dealt with their whole lives and generations before his and the desires of justice they deserved to acquire. Overall this statement and his speech symbolizes the need for equality and freedom for all in the Civil Rights Movement.

All men should be treated equally because all men are created equally by God and under God there is no superiority of races.

All in all I am in agreement with Dr. King when he explains that all men should be treated equally because thy are created equally.

After reflecting on Dr. King's "I Have a Dream Speech," the most iconic and important line was when he said, "And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together." I feel this was the most important line because as Americans we have a duty to live up to. We must always respect, and bring peace to our country because by doing so America will be glorified by the Lord. Taken from the Bible, Dr. King included this verse as a metaphor to highlight the justice that has to be done. By utilizing the Bible as a reflection of justice, Dr. King hoped that once the Lord overlooks our nation, all Americans will be able to come together and live in unity together.

In Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s speech "I Have A Dream" he speaks about the problems that colored people faced at the time.

This note was a promise that all men - yes, black men as well as white men - would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness".

Not only did he pave the path that lead to freedom and equality of all people but he did it in a nonviolent way. His use of nonviolent force was much more significant because it showed all of America that he was only standing up for what he believed was right.

Martin Luther King's speech has presented the discrimination of a specific demographic of people, which are African American citizens. From his speech, the most important key factor is to have justice for all, not just for African Americans, but for everyone in the United States. The way on how he gave that point made me ponder about how it encourages him to strive through the pressure from the discrimination towards African Americans. I believe this point in speech completely change the view of the people in terms of justice and equality for everyone. That Martin Luther King considers the United States to be our home proves his perspectives on having justice for African Americans, especially for everyone, to be in same school together, to work together, to pray together, and to go to jail together. Having freedom and equality to one another is what makes his speech very impacting and important to America.

During the “I Have a Dream” speech Martin Luther King Jr was able to express his opinions and ideas on racism and inequality. This speech would later play a key role in the Civil Rights movements in efforts to restore equality between all people. He states in his speech that “America has given negros a bad check, one that reads insufficient funds”. He is attempting to lure listeners in with metaphors to demonstrate the racial inequalities in the United States. Dr. King led the civil rights movement and changed the way negros and minority groups are treated in America. He is seen and portrayed and one of the most influential people in America for his actions and beliefs on racism and segregation.

What stuck out to me the most would have to be his dream that all men and women deserve to be equal no matter the color of their skin or religion. We're all brothers and sisters of this earth, rather than creating "groups" and discriminating others we should embrace everyone and try to live in harmony.

I believe this is the most important part because it shows that there will be a day where black men/women will be together with white men/women and join hands and just be a whole as a society. This will then show the country that color or race does not matter at the end of the day we are all humans and have feelings, we all wake hard for what we want and deserve and weather your black or white or any other race we all live life to our full potential.

Martin Luther King Jr, one of the most influential people the world has ever seen. Most notably recognized by his part in the civil rights movement. He is responsible for the civil rights African Americans and other minorities receive today. One of his most recognizable speeches not only resonated to the audience that day, that month or even year. MLK's famous I have a dream speech has had a lasting impact for decades. "I have a dream" these words forever memorialized in the ears of listeners all across the nation. The effect these words had on people would later on manifest into physical laws that forced African Americans to be treated as equals. For equals is what Dr.King saw everybody as. That is what he meant when he said he had a dream that his black children would play and hold hands with white children. Unfortunately Dr.King never got to see his dreams truly become reality, However the words he left us with in his "I have a dream speech" will forever ring in our ears and resonate in the hearts of people every where, laying out the blueprint for a better tomorrow.

The most important and meaningful part of Marin Luther King Jr.’s speech is when he begins to speak about satisfaction. This paragraph speaks to me because it outlines the struggles that those of the movement faced and the hopes that they had for the movement. The paragraph implies that they were told by others to stop the movement and be satisfied that they were no longer slaves. Through their perseverance and refusal to be satisfied with segregation, I am able to do the things that they were not. I have suffered through the violence that they did for my freedoms and rights. It is through their dissatisfaction that I can live in a safe and integrated environment.

On August 28, 1963 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr performed a very patriotic speech in regards to solute equal rights for all. Within this influential speech a line that stood out to me was the following, "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 day..." I like to point out how meaningful this pertains to be still 'til this day; no matter what, for better or for worse, it is right decision to make. We stand proud to live in a diverse nation with millions of people, culture, and religions that deserve to be free and remarked as equal. Frequently as said within the speech, I find it as simple to be stating that there is no certain race; there is only the human race. To praise every inch and every word defines the true beauty of life: that is to be kind, generous, and fairly treated amongst all. I'd like to share my sincerity and to take this time to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr for being such an inspiration and contributing to the equal right movement. Without these works, the world today may have remained the same. Although racism still has not erased, it has most definitely cured for the majority.

I believe the most important part from martin luther king jr’s I have a dream speech is when he says “But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia. Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee. Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi - from every mountainside. Let freedom ring… Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!". I chose these two lines because the way you feel hearing king say those word and how it shows the fire and conviction in his voice. I believe those words set off a wild fire in the fight for human rights. It gave people the strength to fight for things people believed were justice. Also mainly I think it’s the most important part because it feels motivational in that you feel the need to make a diffrence in the world.

In Dr.Kings speech, " I have a dream speech," he talks about the rights of African American and how all men are created equal. I believe the most important point in his speech was the when he reiterates the phrases " i have a dream," and " now is the time." These phrases suggest that African Americans should not give up on their dream of being equal to everyone else and have their rights as stated in the constitution. Now is the time states that today is the day to make a change not later, it starts now king states. This speech was very important to our country because it helped with the civil rights movement and today we stand with anyone.

We have all heard of Dr. Martin Luther King, he is more than just a remarkable man that changed history. He was a leader, and a great one at that. Dr. King's speech was broadcasted nationwide, and had very good points. But the one that spoke out to me the most was. " 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." This part of the speech to me, is the most powerful. This was written in the constitution a long time ago, but their definition of equal meant men only. What we've all wanted was ALL people to be equal no matter the gender, race, skin color. And that's the way it should have been since the beginning.

Martin Luther Kings "I Have a Dream Speech" gives out the explains the true forms of injustice that African Americans had struggled with at the time. Dr. King gives hope throughout the speech in order to give a visual of what it would be like for an interracial world of people. This speech is most important for the way Dr. King wants a change for the world and how he reflects it to everyone else who struggles with racial conflict. The speech has valued the minds of whites and all throughout America to make a change and everyone truly equal in this country.

In this great speech given by Martain luther king jr. he is adressing the whole country. In his adress he ask us the country to come together as one and put aside our diferences. even though this speech is about supporting blacks, you can see many white faces in the audience supporting him. This shows us that we have the ability to overcome this problem we face as a community. You can see by the way he talks he is a very powerfull and inteligent speaker, and thats what wins so many people over.

I believe the most important part in Dr. Kings speech was when he mentioned the negroes and that they will never be satisfied as long as they are not treated equally like the other races.It is very important because to this day we still have a problem with blacks around the world and mainly in the United States. Nowadays we have gotten the situation better but there is still police brutality against blacks. They have more freedom and rights now than they did back when Martin Luther King Jr. was alive but it is still not fair and something needs to change in order for them to have the freedom they deserve and were born with that some take away from them.

I personally feel that the most important thing Dr. King said in his speech was when he talked about how freedom should come from all the states and he listed many of them. I feel like this is the most important because by saying this it shows Dr. King won't just be satisfied with freedom in one place, he will only be satisfied with freedom if it comes to every state and province in the United States. This and the many other aspects of his powerful speech show why it led to one of the biggest moments in US history with desegregation and why it's still listened to, today by millions of people around the world

Dr. King spoke about segregation, and how it is so prominent in America. He spoke about how dehumanizing segregation was. I think the most important part was how he spoke of the future and described his dreams of a future with less racism, and how he wanted to take action. He was not afraid to speak about what he believed in and what he hoped for. He said that he did not want to wait for action to take place, he wanted action now. If people continued to not take action, segregation would probably still exist. When a problem occurs, one should take immediate action so that the desired outcome occurrs sooner.

In my opinion the most important piece in Dr Martin Luther King Jr's speech, "I have a dream," was when he said said he wanted to end segregation and he wanted it to happen now. He spoke about how other races were dehumanizing those minorities and how that had to change. All in all if it werent for Dr Martin Luther King Jr and his speech people would not have been as inspired to take immediate action

Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech is one of the most important speeches ever given from a person. One of the most important quotes that I believe is when he states "Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice." This quote as I see it, is one of the more important quotes in the whole speech. This quote emphasizes that the minority community should stand up for what's right and fight against the injustice in society. This quote is also important as it can still be applied today in the modern world for different types of movements about fighting inequality.

I believe the overall most important part of the speech was that Dr. King was telling the audience to overcome no matter what issue it was that they were facing. Dr. King in his speech talks about different issues, the most prominent one being that the african americans were minorities and treated unfairly. Yet even with whatever issue he addressed his main message and point was to fight through and to not give up. I found this very important because it shows that with any issue, there is the same process. We all have to unite and fight until there is a resolution.

The "I Have A Dream " speech was a very important piece in history and Martin Luther King was brave enough to stand up in what he believed in. That alone made a significant move in how we are in society today. Although we are not the best, we still have rights to protect us from discrimination.

I believe that the most important part of Dr.King's speech was him stating that he had a dream of someday reaching equality and not by the laws that would be placed, but by the acceptance of the people themselves. A world not hateful and punishable by the difference's of other people's skin color. King basically hoped for this dream to become a reality where white and blacks finally come together as a people despite their differences and learn the acceptance of eachother.

The most important part of the Martin Luther King speech was when he stated "I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream." The reason why I believe this part is the most important is because throughout many years colored people had to go through so many struggles just to get treated as equal. Dr. King says that a side all the difficult moments they were going through at the time and although it created hurt and frustration he still had a dream. He did not respond in a violent way in fact, he says he has a dream after stating this because he wants people to remain united and remain strong because one day things will be different. This quote to this day makes so much sense because racism in this society is still going on day by day. I agree with Dr. King that one day things will be different and that there will be equality because the color of skin does not determine anything. Blacks did not choose to be black, I’m sure that if they would’ve known that being a color came with such struggles they would not have chose such thing. I hope to one day in the near future see more people standing united because of their intelligence and not by a race, religion or sexuality.
