The legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr has spanned across generations of American families.
And while his dream has resonated throughout our nation's fight for civil liberties, each of us has dreams as well.
"I have a dream for my grandchildren and I know it can be realized if I march here today," says Hearne Resident Helen Johnson.
Johnson's dream is not much different than Dr. King's.
Peace, equality and a better future.
It's why she and others are marching, much as King did decades ago.
"I have a dream that we preserve our civil liberties and civil rights, it's the most important thing," says College Station Resident James Burk.
"My dream really has come true, to come together, black, Hispanic, white, everybody's here," says Bryan Resident Donnie Nelson.
And while some say putting differences aside and walking hand in hand is the fruition of Dr. King's dream, their own vision of what the world could be, has not been realized.
"I think the most important thing about the speech was the rights of people, we've come a long way but we still have a long way to go," says Ann Boney, Local NAACP Chapter President.
Although everyone's dream is different there is one common thread of hope.
