I am Jacqueline Jewell, a student currently enrolled in Immaculata University. I am from southern New Jersey. I am discussing a quote I've heard from one of my professors that was actually there at Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech 50 years ago. I quoted Sister Marcille, whom said this, "I was fourteen years old standing in the crowd of Martin Luther King's ""I have a dream"" speech, and I knew then how important it was. I'd gotten arrested prior to the speech for marching against racism. The biggest mistake we've made was believing it was all over; however, it's a constant everyday struggle." Sister Marcille has acknowledged this quote to me because I'd ask her for her take on the 50th anniversary of that legendary speech. What happened 50 years ago was an civil disobedience act of pure love and understanding with no regard for hatred, but for the rights and justice of all men and women equality. A man stood on the podium before Lincoln Memorial in front of millions of citizens and spoke words of wisdom, freedom, and of God. This mattered then because of the suffering during those times, and it matters now because remembering what our nation was built upon can only make us stronger, closer and live more peacefully as a unit.
