In the mid-sixties, Martin Luther King made a speech at the end of the people's march on Washington DC, delivered 28 August 1963, at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial, that became an iconic statement of the Civil Rights movement. It became known by just four words "I have a dream". It stirred a generation.

In Jan.l956 I entered the congregation of The Sisters of the Divine Saviour in Abbots Langley, Herts., not far from where we lived in Bushey.  Soon afterwards I was sent off to Rome and after my novitiate made my first profession.  My job was to be the receptionist, along with Sr. Dorothea, who was Brazilian with Japanese parents, in our international private clinic in the same grounds.
