I have a dream...

Yes, “I have a dream...” is the title of a very famous and marking speech given by Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1963. It was a speech that wanted to make a stand, a stand for freedom, for the fulfilment of the “promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the “unalienable Rights” of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

“I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.”, he said.

And he ended his speech saying:

“And when this happens, and when we allow freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual:

Free at last! Free at last!

Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”

Martin Luther King had this dream. He pursued freedom, justice and unity.

I also have a dream. I dream of fairer societies where freedom, justice, peace and unity will reign.

I have this dream In Real Life and also in the Virtual World.

I dream that people will respect other people's choices;

I dream that people will respect other people's opinions;

I dream that people will not “fight” with each other because of their differences;

I dream that people will, one day, come together as one!

And I have this dream because we're human and we're capable of outstanding deeds. We're capable of building better societies, fairer and more human societies. And, in these societies:

We won't be using the Internet to build walls of hatred between people behind computer or smartphone screens;

We won't transform social networks in battlefields;

we won't be throwing our frustrations and anger onto other human beings;

We won't disrespect anyone on any basis!

I have a dream that, one day, we'll be human!
