Go On And Dream

Without a doubt, Dr. Martin Luther King's "I Have A Dream" speech is one of the most profound, heart-wrenching, soul-searching speeches ever given. His words have reached generations, and will continue to fortify generations to come.

His dreams may have seemed radical or far-fetched to some people at the time, but Dr. King knew then, as anyone with a conscience and common sense knows, we're all equal in God's eyes. We all deserve to dream.

I sit here now with dreams of my own. I dream of being a loving mom to my daughter and my son. A daily presence who will send my babies out into the world brimming with confidence and a "Yes, we can" kind of attitude. I hope to lay a strong foundation in hopes they'll easily brush off any potential naysayers, out to crush anyone else's dreams before they've even tried.

As a writer you will be told "No" so many times you'll lose count, and some of the rejections are more tough to swallow than others. It's entirely up to you to decide whether or not you want to continue on this dreamer's path. But I say go on. Dream big, and don't lose sight of it. I have a dream that we will break through. It. Will. Happen.


  1. Yes, as Dr. King paid a price for his dream, we all end up paying a price for our dreams. But certain dreams are worth it. Being a loving mother who nutures lovely daughters is a grand, worthy dream. So is to be a self-supporting author who touches the hearts and lives of her readers.

    Emily Dickinson strived lonely and unappreciated in her lifetime, but her words have uplifted thousands since her death. You or I do not know the ripples our dreams, our novels will have. Keep on the good fight. The shore is reachable. I will be rooting you on.
