August 23rd, 1963
Sweat dripping on the late summer afternoon
250,000 people of all color
United, as one
Witnessing the new beginning
Walking together
Without facebook,
and internet
History is made
A movement already ignited
now exploding
not to stop until the promise
promise of this country is fulfilled
he had a dream,
that became reality
he set the explosion
to grant prosperity,
to all people,
regardless of ones appearance
“the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation”
fueled the people who believed in justice
the country that believed in justice
the united nations that believed in justice
to practice his dream
make it reality
as citizens of one country
one world
we stood
and would never sit back
