I have a dream

         August 28,1963, American Civil Rights Activist,  Martin Luther King, delivered a public speech that would forever change American history. This speech is titled "I have a dream".

In that speech, Martin Luther King expressed his dream that one day, America would be free of slavery and racism.

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character.

 I have a dream,  one day,  right here in Alabama,  little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.

 I have a dream,  one day this nation will rise up and live up to its creed,  'We hold these truths to be self evident: that all men are created equal. I have a dream...."

At that time,  such a dream seemed so impossible in the midst of racism, boycotting, arrests, segregation and discriminating laws. Today, that dream is fulfilled or at least,  almost fulfilled.

   What is your dream? Is it to be doctor or an artiste one day? Is it transforming your society to a better place? Is it learning a new skill or an opportunity to display your God-given gift or talent?  Well, I have news for you: yes, it is possible!

  It may seem impossible now, but never you give up on it. Life does not become a regret when we fail at something but when we never tried doing what we deeply desired. You know what you want deep down? Then don't give up! Keep on believing, working hard towards it, hoping, being positive and declaring what you want. You may not be where you want to be after so many failed attempts but if you do these, you will surely get there or at least, close to that place some day. A saying goes thus: "Reach for the stars and if you don't get there,  you will land on the moon. "
Remember: "The future belongs to those that believe in the beauty of their dreams. " Let your motto be, "I won't give up, because ...I have a dream. "
