I am happy to inform you that America is witnessing a dream come true. Your inspiring speech on 28 August 1963 has remained dear at our hearts and inspired us to work hard to realize it. It is approximately fifty years ago when you and another quarter million people matched to the national museum in Washington, when you shared the dream of America.
