To MLK: Thank you for your Dream. We are still working on it, and we are
not going to give up! -ptw
Life’s most urgent question is: what are you doing for others?

To have a dream is to have a sense of purpose.
To see a dream is to know direction
To realize a dream is to live in an uncertain reality, where the dreaming
is just begun.
-original source unknown
If you have a dream alive in your mind,
Bring it to the world, give it life.
Too often, the treasure which are ours alone to give
are never given the chance to grow.
We each have a unique gift
to bring to this world.
It is our purpose in life
to offer this gift.
For even if only a few people benefit from our offering,
the world is then a better place to live.

I am wrapping up a three-day swing through Pennsylvania where I have been
visiting a handful of fabulous colleges that are getting ready to begin a
new semester of classes just after Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. I was
excited to discover how students of many different cultures are committing
themselves to dream BIG dreams, and how many of them attribute such great
motivators as Rev. King for helping fuel their dreams.
Keep dreaming, and don’t underestimate the power of telling others about
YOUR dream! You don’t have to stand on the steps of the Lincoln Monument
to say these words: “I have a dream…..”!
