This has to be one of the most famous speeches and speakers of current days. Can you only imagine how Dr. King must have felt as he wrote and spoke these poignant words? If you have never actually read this speech please take the time to do so as it is such a powerful and moving manuscript.
What if Dr. King did not believe or dream that these types of obstacles could be overcome. How, different the speech may have been. One of the “dreams” he cited states:
“I have a dream that one day this 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."
He did not dream that maybe if all things are aligned and if people so felt inclined that we might be able to be nice to one another that we could all be a little equal. No, he dreamed large, he dreamed of things that he wanted to see in his lifetime, he dreamed of things he could be involved in and ways to help move our society towards a common goal. He didn’t dream half way, he dreamed large and mighty ideas. We too need to have powerful, influential, mighty and grand dreams without them we have little to believe in and without belief we have no hope and hope is what keeps us alive. What is your dream?
