MUSIC, LEADERSHIP, CULTURE… and humor (sometimes)

thanks to MLK, I too, Have a Dream

i have a dream

that one day, people of our nation would go beyond semantics and cliches

that they would learn that the phrase “color blind” is not as politically correct as it seems

that we would learn to celebrate our differences and unique fingerprints

that we would really listen and linger, not merely settle and gloss-over

i have a dream

that people will start walking around like they have a pair

that they would get over themselves

without fear or trepidation

take risks in greater, monumental acts of faith

finally go after those buried dreams and let failure be a part of their flavor

i have a dream

that generosity becomes a way of life and not a project or a note-worthy act

that my neighbor’s quality of life will matter to me as much as mine

that I will understand this life is really not about me

I have a dream

that we’ll unite to see the world’s injustices come to an end

that slaves will be set free

that no one would be denied their right to food, shelter, and clothing

that we’ll see each other as brother and sister regardless of race, religion, economic status, prettiness, studly-ness, zittiness, or smelliness

I have a dream

that I could be an example of a miracle this next year

this video was put together by our team from Newsong Irvine and as far as i’m concerned, it’s a must see!  “Pride (In the Name of Love” cover done by our friend Vaughn Thompson and video produced by Sam Song.
