How many times have we heard Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I had a dream” speech? I know as a child I would listen to it and chills would run up and down my spine.
As a military brat, it was hard for me to fathom a time where people were judged purely by the color of their skin. Sure, I knew discrimination existed even still today – but I was fortunate enough to live in a time where people of all colors were learning to respect one another and live in harmony. As a military brat I was taught not to see color – only to see them as who they were on the inside.
What a gift.
