I Have A Dream Too
I have a dream.
That one day the people of different nations will come together in unity;
That little girls and little boys of different countries, different colours, different creeds, will play together as equals;
That they will grow to value each other for their qualities and not despise each other for their differences.
One day I hope a person’s colour and beliefs will cease to create barriers;
That those prejudices, fears and hate of the past will no longer exist.
I have a dream of a new world where nationality and patriotism are big enough to encompass all people;
Where every single person is equally important.
I have a dream of a world where people care for each other and the planet;
Where we all live in harmony with nature and respect living creatures;
A world in which we will no longer rape the planet or act irresponsibly out of greed or ignorance.
I have a dream of a world without barriers – a kinder, wiser and more caring world.
We can all dream.
And sometimes dreams can come true!
I wrote this with a nod to Martin Luther King.
If we wish to build something better we first have to have a dream, a vision to work towards. We might never get to that mountain top but at least we can start the journey. Any improvement, no matter how small, is never-the-less an improvement.
Without a dream we are floundering and are led by the wrong leaders.
