Pride (in the name of love)

02_-_Pride__In_the_Name_of_Love_._WwW.LoKoTorrents.CoM_.ogg Listen on Posterous

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed:
"We hold these truths to be self­ evident, that all men are created equal."
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.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of
injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom
and justice.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be
judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

-Martin Luther King Jr.

The music of U2 is always full and meaningful. Few bands in Music comes close to the influence of their songs’ lyrics. Today, April 4th, we remember the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. and I find it extremely appropriate to post U2’s song, Pride, in memory of the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.
