DREAMS...outdated or the new wave?
Does anyone ever dream anymore? I didn't realize how dreaming and making your dreams come true had become obsolete until.........Obama came on the scene. "The Audacity Of Hope" should have been titled "The Audacity To Dream" because that is what he did. He had a dream. If you went through the sixties and seventies then you were a part of the generation that believed in dreams. We dreamed of peace, love, equality, helping one another, protecting the environment and animals. What happened to all those dreams? Who or what woke us up? I am as guilty as anyone for killing the ability, the importance of dreaming. I told my daughter to save money, get as much education as possible, make contacts along the way, compete, compete, compete but never did I tell her to follow her dreams. Sadly, I never bothered to ask her what her dreams were. I would like to believe there is still time to make our dreams come true. The one's that mean the most at least. More importantly, it's time to teach our children about dreams and their importance especially now that one little boy grew up to make his come true...to one day be the President of the best country on the planet. What were some of your dreams growing up? Did you make any come true? If not what made you give them up? Do you talk to your kids about their dreams? Do you think it is ever too late to make a dream come true?
