Monday Meditation~Do you have a dream?

 

Martin Luther King had a dream. A dream that shaped the world and the way he lived in it. So today I think it is important to honor our dreams, to shape a few new ones of our own, to define how we want to live in our world and what we hope to see it become.

For Martin Luther King had a vision of a world united. He dreamed……

“I have a dream this afternoon that we will recognize the words of Jefferson, “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with some inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

“I have a dream this afternoon!  I have a dream that one day “every valley shall be exalted and every hill and mountain shall be made low. The rough places will be made plain and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.”

“I have a dream this afternoon that the brotherhood of man will become a reality in this day. And with this faith I will go out with you and transform dark yesterdays into bright tomorrows. With this faith, I will go out with you and tranform dark yesterdays into bright tomorrows. With this faith, we will be able to acheive this new day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, protestants and catholics, will be able to join hands and sing with the Negro in the spiritual of old: “Free at last. Free at last. Thank God Almighty, we are free at last.”

Martin Luther King definitely had a Dream. Do you have a dream?
