The Dreams Of Martin Luther King Jnr.

Dreams are powerful, so powerful we humans spend our lives pursuing our dreams.

There are some cogent truth I discovered about dreams. If your mind can conceive it, then its possible.

Don’t dream small, dream big because whether small or big, if you work towards it; it will become a reality.

The only thing that makes our dreams to remain in the realm of impossibility is dedication. Study the creation of the world from Genesis. Dedicate some hours everyday to work in your dreams.

The life of Martin Luther king Jnr. is a classic example of the power of dreams. I share with us his speech titled: I HAVE A DREAM.

“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.” I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.  I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.  I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.  I have a dream today! I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of “interposition” and “nullification” — one day right there 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 today! I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight; “and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together. – Martin Luther King Jr.

Was his dream fulfilled or not?

remember, your dreams won’t move you alone, it will stir and move others. In your dreams are the foetus of other people’s dreams- Babashola Timothy Ayeni.
