I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the idea of a democratic and free society. In which all persons will live together. In harmony and with equal opportunity. We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans. We shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds. We shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills. We shall never surrender! I am talking about genuine peace, the kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living. And the kind that enables men and nations to grow, and to hope, and build a better life for their children. Not merely peace for Americans, but peace for all men and women; Not merely peace in our time, but peace in all times. 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! Through our pain, we will make them see their injustice, and it will hurt. As all fighting hurts… but we cannot lose, we cannot! They may torture my body, break my bones, even kill me… Then, they will have my dead body, not my obedience!
