I have a dream...

I read a post today on a new blog introduced to me by Lisa,The blog is called Boobs, Injuries and Dr. Pepper. The blog post was titled, "Yes you should", and it was in reference to "I have a dream." Please read it. I really liked it.

I have a dream....

I have a dream that one day we will unite as a country to care for the deserving ones who cannot care for themselves. We will provide health care for our elderly and not force them into poverty with rising pharmaceutical prices for medicines that enable them to simply live.

I have a dream that we will welcome our military home with joy and gratitude and not force our beliefs upon them about a war they fought while we watched it on the news.

I have a dream that one day I will not fear sending my children to a public school.

I have a dream that myself and others like me can speak freely and innocently, with no malice in our hearts, and not be labeled as a person who hates simply because of the words we choose.

I have a dream that people will rise above those words thereby taking away their power to harm.


Here is my dream:

I have a dream that stay at home Moms will be respected for the choices and sacrifices that they make to spend their days being their chidren's teacher, inspiration, and mentor.

I have a dream that Moms who work outside the home will not be treated like they care more about their careers than their children.

I have a dream that there will be a day where children in America do not go to bed hungry.

I have a dream that there will come a time when those who work hard to provide for their families will not live a more sparse existence than those who choose not to work.

I have a dream that there will come a time when everyone exercises their right to vote.

I have a dream that someday teachers will be able to earn more than executives.

Do you have a dream?
