Martin Luther King Day

Martin Luther King 3c26559r

Martin Luther King Had a Dream

Martin Luther King was a man for justice
Martin Luther King was a man for peace
Martin Luther King was a man for freedom
Martin Luther King had a dream

Martin Luther King wanted every person
Treated with respect and dignity
Martin Luther King took a stand for liberty
Martin Luther King had a dream

Martin Luther King lived a life committed
Helping all the people on the earth
Working for the world and looking to the future
Martin Luther King had a dream

Martin Luther King has left a vision
Every one of us can carry on
That we live in peace and love each other
Martin Luther King had a dream
