His dream is alive and well. Tomorrow, January 19, 2009 we will celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King. I thought it would be appropriate to provide this link to his speech, "I have a dream" It will require that you have Real Audio Player. It's free to download if you don't have it. I still have a dream that our country will thrive in this next season. My dream is to see men and women, boys and girls go to higher heights and see their dreams come true.
