I Have A Dream

“I have a dream, that one day our Nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed – We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”

Today in history, 47 years ago.

Why there was ever a time when anyone had to dream such a dream is almost incomprehensible.

What were people thinking when this was not part of everyday life?

Martin Luther King had the right idea. Dream impossible dreams. Great dreams. Dreams that require courageous leadership.

  1. Unfortunately, I still think it’s a dream. Sometimes it is overt, sometimes insidious, but bigotry and fear of those who are somehow “different” is alive and thriving.

  2. Not disagreeing.

    What do you think the plight would be like today, if the man hadn’t had a dream?

    We must become the change we wish to see.

    That is what Martin Luther King did.

  3. We are getting there, but still have a long way to go. I think the worst thing we can do is to remain silent.
    We must become the change we wish to see. How true!

  4. Lorie, I’ve been reading (slowly) Seth Godin’s “Linchpin”.

    He writes, at length about our lizard brain, the part of our brain that deals with fight or flight.

    When given the choice, the easiest way to survive is what?

    This is why the journey is so long and hard – our lizard brains run away fairness, justice, Love, equality.

    Ever watch the way lions or vultures fight over a dead carcass?
