A Dream...

A Dream...

I Have A Dream - Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Now is the time to make real the promises..."

Do you have a dream? What is it? How will you fulfill that dream? What changes are you making? 

This speech represents one man's dream. Have you ever heard this speech? Most of you will say yes. In it's entirety?  That's where it gets a little tricky. Most have heard one version or another. The wheels of change are upon us in this world. Constantly. Can you feel them? Think back to when this speech took place. 1963. Think of how much has changed There is nothing in this world that can not be changed if enough people stand firm in their convictions. A mass is a controlled manifestation challenging the system. Rules are meant to be broken. 

I once challenged you to look for a cause. To find your cause To stand by it. Support it. Be ready to die doing and representing what you love. This man did such a thing. And I have no doubt within me that there will continue to be such revolutionary figures in this world. It is the same belief that tells me every one of you could be such people if you stand firm in your beliefs. It would be a man's undoing to deny the urge that challenges the impossible. It is important that we continue to push our boundaries. If we fight for a change together there is nothing that can keep that change from coming. 

If you've never listened to this man's dream. I urge you to. And try to listen without judgement. There is a greater message. 

There is no unity in division.
