MLK’S I have a dream is always refreshening to listen to ..MLK was..Inspiring, empowering and visionary. May the dream of Dr Martin Luther challenge us to aim high, stand tall and stay faithful to fight all forms of racism, anti-Semetism and oppression

hmmmm ngoja kwanza its REMIX TIME ……Now my own version of I had A dream …. a KENYAN Dream

5 years ago, my kenyan self , in whose symbolic shadow I stand today, came to the USA ..This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of the kenyan’ relatives s in jamhuri who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice.and poverty ..It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of his captivity in the land of disease and origins of mankind.

But 5 years later, the kenyans still is not free. 5 years later, the life of the immigrant is still sadly crippled by the manacles of backstabling and school and also the chains of struggling.
5 years later, the kenyan man in America lives on a island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. 5 years later , the kenyan is still languishing in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. So I have come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.

IIt is obvious today that Unite states has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her kenyan immigrants are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred dream of kenyans , The US has given the her immigrant people a bad check, a check which has come back marked “insufficient funds.” But I refuse to believe that the bank of opportunity for kenyan immigrants is bankrupt. I refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. So we have come to cash this check — a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice. I have also come to this hallowed spot to remind Myself of the fierce urgency of now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of financial wealth… Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of desolence to the sunlit path of financial justiceaway from motherland kenya . Now is the time to lift our selves from the quick sands of social injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God’s children.

It would be fatal for the kenyans to overlook the urgency of the moment. This sweltering summer of the kenyans legitimate discontent will not pass until there is an invigorating autumn of freedom and equality. 2007 is not an end, but a beginning. Those who hope that the kenyan immigrant student needed to blow off steam and will now be content will have a rude awakening if the nation returns to business as usual. There will be neither rest nor tranquility in here until the kenyan is granted his financial rights. The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges.

But there is something that I must say to my people who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice. In the process of gaining our rightful place I must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.

I am not unmindful that some of you have come here out of great trials and tribulations. Some of you have come fresh from Poor back grounds Some of you have come from areas where your quest for freedom left you battered by the storms of persecution and staggered by the winds of financial rutality. Some of you have come from the hills or kakamega , to the plains of bondo.Some of you have come from the maize farms in nakuru to the hills in muranga and nyeri. You have been the veterans of creative suffering. Continue to work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive… nyumbani iko Mungiki .. no turning back !With this faith .. we must be ready to go foward without fail…

Go back to your CNA Job Mississippi, go back to your Security job Alabama, go back to your Studies in college in South Carolina, go back to your night job Georgia, go back to your customer service jobs Louisiana, go back to the apartments and homes of your northern cities, knowing that somehow this situation can and will be changed. Let us not wallow in the valley of despair tumetoka mbali kiambu is far! kaptagat is far.. let freedom reign!

Free at last ! free at last Thank God almighty we are Free at last
