50 Years Later

Today is the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington and Dr. Martin Luther King's "I Have A Dream" Speech.

So how far have we come as a nation in 50 years?

Dr. King's dream that "little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers" is achieved in my home, anyway!

And for that I am so grateful!

But, we still have a long way to go.

Another part of Dr. King's speech brings true pain to my heart:

"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 their character."

Because I have that dream, too, for my four children, but I fear that dream will not be reality for them.

May each of us do our part to get there.  So 50 years from now race is not an issue.  We are people, all of us created in the image of God!


I'd love to hear what you think!
