March on Washington

I have a dream

Charlette Bockner

Hello. My name is Charlette Bockner, but everybody calls me Char. I own a flower shop right down the street from a music store where the employees always play my favorite song, Sugar Shack, by Jimmy Glimmer. I can't wait to get home and eat my Favorite food Fruit loops, drink some ice cold coca-cola and watch my favorite TV series "Mr Ed". Later tonight I am going out with my friends to watch a movie called "It's a Mad Mad Mad World", many people have told me that it was good. It features a famous star called Spencer Tracy. After the movie we are going shopping for a new outfit for my friend Tracy. She is going on a date! We are thinking about getting her a nice plaid dress with a tie in the front. I wish these kinds of activities were all that were going on in the world, but in reality it's just not.
It's not supposed to be this way, black and white. Segregation should be long gone. On August 28, 1963 there was a march. This was not just any march though, this march was gigantic. Over 250,000 people joined together in Washington all for equal rights. I am proud to say I participated in this march on that August day. I'm also proud to stand up for equal rights in anyway I can, black or white we are all people and we all deserve to be treated equally. As we marched along the streets I saw so many signs and posters waving in the air. Most said things like "jobs for all" and "end segregation in schools". Most of us all held hands, walked in lines and sang songs. Finally, we all stopped and were crowded around the Washington Monument, and one man. This man is who will go down in history. This man is who we look up to and respect. This man is Martin Luther King Jr. Mr King gave a spectacular speech that day. We are calling it the "I Have A Dream" speech. In this he talked about how he has dreams about equality in all aspects of his life. I believed every word he said that hot summer day. An American is an American and No one should be treated better than another.
