In his “I Have a Dream Speech” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. declared “, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until "justice rolls down like waters, and righteousness like a mighty stream.” As we celebrate his legacy, we might pause to ask ourselves how far we’ve come in accomplishing those iconic dreams outlined in Dr. King’s speech.
