*He Had A Dream*

Age Group: Adult
"He Had A Dream!"
"Love is the only force capable of transforming
an enemy into a friend. "
-Martin Luther King, Jr.
Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote this quote
I was reminded of his amazing fortitude
and his ability to collectively accomplish
so much in the way of equal rights and freedom.
On this day, that honors such a man,
I ponder this question:
How far have we actually come
since that day of his walk for freedom?
We should examine what he stood for,
what he was trying and did accomplish
in his lifetime.
We honor him today,
many people have this day off from work,
students have no school,
but does anyone really understand
what we are truly honoring?
Dr. King's vision included that of equality in:
voting, education, and criminal and economic justice.
We are forever faced with new challenges
everyday in continuing to fight to make
Dr. King's dream a reality.
It takes a whole country,
to complete this dream.
My hope is that Dr. King's Dream
will be a reality in my lifetime.
Author's Notes: Yes, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Had a dream. This dream shall be a reality. All must strive for equality at all times, no matter what!
Love, Peace, Light and Equality for all men,
