The Pacers recognized Devonte Tatum with their Dream Big Challenge!

This competition was open to all Warren township 4th to 9th graders. They were to take the following passage from Dr. King's legacy and explain what it means to them.


"I say to you today, my friends, though, even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up, live out the true meaning of its creed: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal."


An original project was selected from each grade level. Devonte represents all 4th graders in the township and we at Grassy Creek are very proud of him. He was recognized at a Pacer game this week.

Read his project below.

What Dr. Martin Luther King’s Speech Means to Me

What Dr. Martin Luther King's speech means to me is that we are all able to be together and not be separated. It also means that sometimes people are rude to others but that doesn’t mean that we can’t step in and make a difference. Also if he was still around I would be able to tell Dr. Martin Luther King that his dream came true. In some places there is still segregation but in America it is a free country. The importance of his speech is that people shouldn’t be judged by their color but by their character and he wants the same for his kids. This is also important because people should not be judged by their shoes, clothes, hair,or their strength because he said that all men are created equal. I also noticed that at his speech that there weren’t just black people there were black and white. I can also picture to kids a black kid and a white kid dreaming that one day them being able to play together and not be separated from each other and I am happy that if he were here I could tell him that his dream just didn’t come true from where he was from but people are together in a lot of places. Also in Dr. Martin Luther King’s speech that he didn’t care what color people were and he wanted his kids to be the same way and be able to help people black or white.
