First of all, I hope everyone has a chance to recall why today we celebrate the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
I also hope that you take some time today to reflect on what your dreams are, at all levels.
Can you remember what you dreamed last night? What have your night dreams shown you about your life and lessons?
What are your dreams for yourself and your family in the future, near and far?
What are your dreams for humanity, for our world?
Not all of us will have dreams like Dr. King. Not all of us will have a hope so intense, a will so driven, as to devote our lives to a Cause. When the fuel for our work is grounded in a passion, based on a dream, a hope, it takes a special person indeed to follow through.
Think of your dreams again. Are you working to fulfill those dreams? Are the dreams already fulfilled and you living the dream?
If your dream were for all to be created equal, would you say we are living the dream, or is there still work to be done? Surely, Dr. King’s life was not in vain . . . and neither is yours or mine.
