Video: ‘Keep dreaming,’ says Kid President at 50th anniversary of MLK’s ‘I Have a Dream’ speech



Internet sensation “Kid President” — also known as 8-year-old Robby Novak, who attends the Estes Church of Christ in Henderson, Tenn. — spoke briefly during the 50th anniversary commemoration of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.
The 1963 march was highlighted by Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. A half-century later, the featured speaker was President Barack Obama.
Earlier this year, Novak visited his fellow president in the Oval Office.

    Dr. King dreamed of a day when everyone had opportunity, when everyone could hold their head up and be respected and acknowledged as a valued member of society. He dreamed of this country allowing a man willing to work, to have a job where he could work and provide for his family and have dignity and self-pride rather than struggle against those who would deny him those things. He shared the dream of our Lord, that a man would provide for his family and teach his children about God and treat his wife with love and loyalty for his lifetime. We must all share the dream and keep working, keep working, keep working to make this dream a reality for everyone. What a wonderful blessing for this young one to be recognized for his personal dream to make a difference in this world. Thank you, Kid President….may all your dreams come true!
