i am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as thegreatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.
five score years ago， a great american， in whose symbolic shadow we standtoday， signed the emancipation proclamation.this momentous decree came as agreat beacon light of hope to millions of negro slaves who had been seared inthe flames of withering injustice.it came as a joyous daybreak to end the longnight of their captivity.
but one hundred years later， the negro still is not free.one hundred yearslater， the life of the negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles ofsegregation and the chains of discrimination.one hundred years later， the negrolives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of materialprosperity.one hundred years later， the negro is still languished in thecorners of american society and finds himself an exile in his own land.and sowe"ve come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.
in a sense we"ve come to our nation"s capital to cash a check.when thearchitects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the constitution andthe declaration of independence， they were signing a promissory note to whichevery american was to fall heir.this note was a promise that all men， yes，black men as well as white men， would be guaranteed the "unalienable rights" of"life， liberty and the pursuit of happiness." it is obvious today that americahas defaulted on this promissory note， insofar as her citizens of color areconcerned.instead of honoring this sacred obligation， america has given thenegro people a bad check， a check which has come back marked "insufficientfunds."
ladies and gentlemen， boys and girls，
i am chinese.i am proud of being a chinese with five thousand years ofcivilization behind.i‘ve learned about the four great inventions made by ourforefathers.i‘ve learned about the great wall and the yangtze river.i‘velearned about zhang heng and i‘ve learned about zheng says the yellow rivercivilization has vanished?i know that my ancestors have made miracles on thisfertile land and we‘re still making miracles.who can ignore the fact that wehave established ourselves as a great state in the world， that we have devisedour own nuclear weapons， that we have successfully sent our satellites intospace， and that our gnp ranks no.7 in the world? we have experienced theplunders by other nations， and we have experienced the war.yet， based on suchruins， there still stands our nation----china， unyielding and unconquerable!
i once came across an american tourist.she said， ―china has a history offive thousand years， but the us only has a history of 200 years.five thousandyears ago， china took the lead in the world， and now it is the us that isleading.‖ my heart was deeply touched by these words.it is true that we‘restill a developing nation， but it doesn‘t mean that we can despise ourselves.wehave such a long-standing history， we have such abundant resources， we have suchintelligent and diligent people， and we have enough to be proud of.we havereasons to say proudly：
we are sure to take the lead in the world in the futureagain， for our problems are big， but our ambition is even bigger， our challengesare great， but our will is even greater.
i am chinese.i have inherited black hair and black eyes.i have inheritedthe virtues of my ancestors.i have also taken over responsibility.i am sure，that wherever i go， whatever i do， i shall never forget that i am chinese!

Good morning， it"s my honor to stand here and give you this speech aboutdreams.There I want to start my speech with two short stories.
The first story happened when I was in primary school， I wrote in mycomposition that my dream was to be a teacher when I grew up.Meanwhile， what myclassmates wrote about their dreams was that he or she wanted to be a doctor， ascientist or an astronaut.
The second story happened at my first year in university.At the careersplanning class， when the teacher asked about our dreams， one of my classmatesstood up and said， “I want to be a farmer， because I grow up in a farmer"sfamily and I love to be engaged in agriculture.” When he sat down， everyoneclapped.
These two stories happened during my growth process， from which I got myunderstanding of dreams.When I was a child I believed that a dream must be abig dream， but when I grow up I find this big dream is so far away from me， Iknow little about it， and I have done nothing to achieve it， so it"s not mydream.My classmate"s answer let me know a real dream is not just about being agreat man， or doing a great job， it"s about what you really want to be， and arewilling to try every effort to pursue it.
Because what makes a dream valuable is not just about the result， it"s alsoabout the process， the process when you are trying， when you are struggling，when you failed and restarted again and again， because of the process， dreamscan be meaningful and become your wealth.
