In the Shenandoah Valley, students took  Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s famous words to heart. Hundreds of students at Shelburne Middle School watched his "I Have a Dream" speech together and shared dreams of their own for the future.

Wednesday morning, students watched the entire speech in their classes. Teachers also came up with other interactive lessons and activities. Students discussed what it meant to them, and several said they felt inspired by what they heard.

"We have some displays with pictures of Martin Luther King Jr. in the middle, and we're asking students to publish their dreams," said Robert Craft, Shelburne Middle School principal.

Staff and faculty also completed the dream bubble exercise. Thursday, those ideas will all be displayed on bulletins around the school.
