A dream is useless unless we do something about it. Right? A dream represents pure opportunity. It is action that ultimately makes the difference.
All of us are walking around and waking up every day with these crazy dreams. Maybe it is simple or a world changing idea. It really doesn’t matter what the dream is. A dream is a dream, you just have to do something about it.
Now come the excuses, we all have dreams but how in the world can we make them happen when this? When that? I get it. I have excuses too. The world is a broken place and we all know it. I use to complain about all kinds of things such as; money, education, the list goes on and on. These are all viable things so don’t get me wrong. However, we have to stop letting these things hold us back. The opportunity is there, the dream is there, and the opportunity to fail is there. Yes, you will fail again and again I promise. Just don’t stop because I together we will win and beat this broken world. Who is with me?
Today we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. a man, a husband, and a symbolic leader of American blacks but also a world figure. Martin Luther King had a dream for justice. He said, “now is the time to make justice a reality for all of Gods Children.” King believed in the solid rock of brother hood and nothing was going to stand before him and his dream. I honor this man for his faith, courage, strength, and trust. This man not only had a dream but lived it out. He was not afraid to fail and even if he was you never saw it.
King said, the following dreams and today we honor him for that. God Bless you King for your good works.
“I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
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.”
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification; one day right there in Alabama, little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.
I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, 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.
Do you have a dream? What is holding you back? The time is now to start living it out.
