    There was a man who had a dream,
    a dream of equality
    a dream of respect for all races.
    A dream
    He had a dream where black man & white man jew or gentile could dwell together in harmony
    A Dream
    He went to the mountain
    and looked over into the promised land and saw that his labor of love was not in vain
    A dream
    His words inspired us to dream, capture his vision
    and to proclaim his message of non-violence and equality
    A Dream
    Yet that dream is still a dream, but that dream was never meant to remain a dream.
    That dream was formed to move people into action to bring about a change
    But that dream is still a dream.
    In dreaming about the dream we have failed to understand the meaning of that dream.
    Its time to stop dreaming, and make the dream reality.

    KEEP THE DREAM ALIVE!

    As we scribe and renew the promise of the dream
    It is possible ,it is not as far out of reach as it may seem.
    For the dream represents the prophesy of what God has
    planned for the worthy!
    Not white,hispanic , asian or black by sorrows injustice
    fall short of our true destiny.
    To live in peace and harmony.
    Caring for each other as
    a sister or a brother...
    'THE SCRIBE WAS TIGHT "I MEAN!'
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE :peace: :peace: :peace: :peace:
