I Have Hope

 

I have hope of a world where

  • peace is the atmosphere of our cultures
  • people do not die because of their faith
  • people are not imprisoned for a difference of an opinion
  • war is not engaged because of surface issues such as skin color
  • black, white, yellow, brown, rich, poor, presidents, and people who sweep the streets are all equal in value

Can one person really change the world? Don’t we all think about this question? The answer is that one person by themselves do not but they wield a power that motivates the masses to one vision. By the study of history I am recognizing the power of inspired rhetoric that erupts from the seat of passion.

How different the world would be without:

Winston Churchill …if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, This was their finest hour.

Nelson Mandela – For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.

President John F. Kennedy – ask not what your country can do for you–ask what you can do for your country.

Martin Luther King Jr. 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.

It starts as a dream/vision – words carry it from an unseen world into a world of possibility – action makes it become a reality. They believed and lived with the thought that ‘WE DON’T HAVE TO BE UNEQUAL. POVERTY ISN’T INEVITABLE. IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE UNFAIR. THINGS CAN AND WILL CHANGE’…
