Do you have a Dream?

Monday, January 16, 2012, our nation will celebrate the life and tireless efforts of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a man of God who devoted his life to fighting for inequality for not only African-Americans, but for humanity and the disadvantaged. As we reflect on the dream that was revealed to him by God, let us meditate on the vision that God has placed in our hearts and how we plan to bring them to fruition. We have to use our spiritual eyes and incline our ears to Him to ensure that we are fulfilling our personal call. The dream has been established and there is much work for us all to do to ensure that Dr. King's dream doesn't become a nightmare. Our youth are falling by the wayside and it is up to us to hold them accountable and display compassion. God, family, education, and common sense is the foundation for any man's success and we have got to get back to the good ol' days when men maintained jobs, attended church, provided for their families out of love-not because the Department of Human Resources mandates it, and were active participants in their households. Black Men used to be prevalent in the field of education and many attended college to become teachers to serve in their communities. My grandmother's generation were women who walked in integrity and served the Lord with gladness, maintained the spirit of peace in their households, and they wouldn't be caught dead in clothes that didn't cover them. We all have the spirit of excellence abiding within us that has transcended from generation to generation and I am confident that we too can become a generation that will be known for Restoring the Dream and Destroying the Current Nightmare. Be Blessed:)
