I Have A Dream

God Bless You, Rev, Dr.Martin Luther King for your brilliant, riveting "I have a dream" speech in Washington, D.C.  I am borrowing your poetic words out of love and respect.  I am sure your wonderful rhetoric is being echoed by the angels in heaven.

How do you spell greatness:  Martin Luther King
With total respect for this courageous giant of a man, here is the Tales version of "I Have A Dream":

I have a dream that one day soon we will have a president of the United States who will honor with pride the greatness of our country and sacrifices made by our Armed Forces in delivering freedom for millions of people around the world, instead of apologizing for our past "sins."

I have a dream that one day soon we will have a president of the United States who will unite the country, bringing people of every race and religion and ethnic origin together as one to re-establish the exceptional America, instead of dividing the people of this country for political gain, yes I have a dream.

I have a dream that we will soon have a president of the United States who will once again honor our brave law enforcement officers instead of honoring those attacking those officers with hate filled words and in some cases hate filled physical attacks. 

I have a dream that we will have a president of the United States who will be for justice for all, instead of justice for those he deems worthy. 

I have a dream that we will once again have a president who will reach out a hand of support to our friends, like Israel, instead of reaching out that hand in appeasement to our enemies, like Iran, yes, I have a dream. 

I have a dream that we will once again have a president of the United States acting presidential with soaring poetic rhetoric, instead of dishonoring the office of the presidency by calling Americans who disagree with his policies, "the crazies." 

I have a dream that we will soon have a president of the United States who will honor Dr. Martin Luther King's dream of judging people by the content of their character and not by
the color of their skin, yes Lord, I have a dream today.  

And I have a dream that one day again in America we will have a leader emerge as great and as good as the Rev., Dr. Martin Luther King.
