This is a quote I don’t often hear when Dr. King is quoted. But when I think about this and what it really means is, no one should get to determine what you can and cannot be in this life. No one should be able to control your destiny. They shouldn’t have the right to limit you. This can easily go over many people’s head who are rarely affected by racial or gender biases. It wasn’t that long ago that if you dreamed of being a doctor or a sergeant in the military it was impossible because it was by enlarge controlled by white men in power specifically in the United States. And still in different countries and cultures a woman’s destiny, a certain group of people’s dreams are controlled by someone else who really should not have that much power over another HUMAN BEING.
