He had a dream

Posted by Schnecke on September 9, 2007

I have recently watched for the first time the whole ‘I have a dream’ speech delivered on the steps of Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. by Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1963. I had, of course, read a lot about it, heard some parts once and again,… but I had never watched it complete. I want to share it with you, in case you have never seen it either, or if you have, you may enjoy watching it again.

It is a bit long. But I think it is worth it.

The first minutes warmed up the atmosphere, on minute 9 the speech starts to be inquestionably moving and starts to go for the climax with ‘Let us not wallow in the valley of dispair. And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream …’ going up and up to the end. This last part starts around minute 12.

How long is it gonna take us?!

…. …. …. ….  

I think the video is enough comment about the topic. It is a teenager’s speech on climate change which was delivered in the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) also known as the Earth Summit. It took place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from June 3rd to 14th, 1992. It’s been more than 15 years since that summit.

I thank Isabel Perez for her amazing compilation work …

Minesweeper, the movie

Posted by Schnecke on August 29, 2007

Hi again,

As you see, I have not kept my first-day-promise and I have NOT written on the blog every day as recommended by a fellow blogger (see previous posts). I assume that writing on a blog everyday is tiring and many times you do not have anything interesting to share with ‘the family’. I have thus decided to commit myself to writing  on the blog once a week minimum and everytime I have something important to share – provided I have the time to write about it   🙂 !

One of my main interests and hobbies/passtimes is to look  at other blogs to see the thousands of possibilities that blogging may offer and also as a source of ‘interesting stuff’ for my own blog. Today I have been learning to install my site meter – to keep track of the visits to my blog- and I have found a couple of very interesting pages.

1. I highly recommend watching the trailer of the upcoming “Minesweeper- the movie”. I couldn’t stop laughing……. I have created a permalink in my blogroll to Colege Humor, where you can watch the video. Please, let me know if you liked it.

I have to credit El Espontáneo for finding the video………

2. I hear there is going to be a Blog Day August, 31st. I will write a new post especifically about this a.s.a.p.
