We are a long way from the day Martin Luther King made his "I Have a Dream" speech at a peaceful demonstration in our nation's capital. If you haven't ever read his speech, do yourself a favor and read it now. It's short.
We've come a long way, but still have far to go to see that people are treated equally – not just in the U.S. but all over the world.
I think Dr. King would be happy and proud to see that we have elected a black president, but he would most assuredly see that hatred and bigotry still exist along with a poisonous apathy in our great Land of Opportunity.
As a reverend he was quite aware of the nature of man and the necessity of spiritual revival. He also believed in the American Dream.
So today I ask you, what is your dream?
Do you have a dream of making a difference in the world? Is there a cause you think about but haven't jumped on its bandwagon yet?
Are you thinking about making a big move in your life, in your career or where you live?
If you have a dream but feel blocked in making it come true, ask yourself, "what have I got to lose? I have the freedom to do whatever I want in this country (within reason and within the laws) so what's stopping me?"
I believe in building dreams and going for them.
I believe in you!
