I have a dream

I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

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 human beings are created equal.”

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the daughters of Buddha and the sons of Buddha will be able to sit down together at a table of brother and sisterhood.

I have a dream that women will one day practice a religion where they will not be judged by their gender but by the content of their character. I have a dream today!

I have a dream that to render evolution of mentalities possible means action.

I have a dream today that His Holyness the Dalai Lama and the Karmapa will join together to give the full ordination to one hundred tibetan bikkhunis.

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. »
