In a world drowning in corruption,
I declare for all to see,
That I am a hopeless romantic.
I will not give up hope for the
Pierre Elliott Trudeau promised me.
Here are men who shaped my dream.
Robert Kennedy
Bobby Kennedy
A champion of civil rights and close friend of Martin Luther King, Jr., Robert F. Kennedy worked to help pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964, putting an end to oppressive Jim Crow laws and increasing equality in America. He devoted himself to bringing equality to South Africa as well, championing the anti-apartheid movement. As Attorney General – a position he was appointed to by brother and President John F. Kennedy in 1960 – Kennedy relentlessly pursued the mafia and organized crime; his publicized battle with Teamsters Union President Jimmy Hoffa won him both praise and criticism.
Martin Luther King

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today!

And when this happens, when we allow freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual:

Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!

Pierre Elliott Trudeau
I will use all my strength to bring about a just society to a nation living in a tough world.
It is wonderful to be despised, if, deep down, we know we are right.
Let us overthrow the totems, break the taboos. Or better, let us consider them cancelled. Coldly, let us be intelligent.
Our hopes are high. Our faith in the people is great. Our courage is strong. And our dreams for this beautiful country will never die.
Perhaps the rediscovery of our humanity, and the potential of the human spirit which we have read about in legends of older civilizations, or in accounts of solitary mystics, or in tales of science fiction writers - perhaps this will constitute the true revolution of the future. The new frontier lies not beyond the planets but within each one of us.
Pierre Elliott Trudeau
