What is Your Dream?

Everyone, everywhere in the world has dreams.

Do you know who Martin Luther King, Jr. is? He had a dream. He wanted people of all races and colors to live together in peace.

“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 a table of brotherhood. I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi , a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I have a dream that my four 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 the state of Alabama, whose governor’s lips are presently dripping with the words of interposition and nullification, will be transformed into a situation where little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls and walk together as sisters and brothers. I have a dream today.”

Everyone can have a dream. You are never too young or too old to dream. What is your dream?

Do you want to be an astronaut, or a firefighter, or a teacher? Do you want to visit Disney World or travel to Hong Kong ?

Some children dream of a world where everyone has enough food. Others dream that someday they can go to school.

We all have different dreams, depending on what is most important to us.

What is most important to you? What is your dream?
