4th of July Dreams: Years Later- have you built yours?


From The March on Washington For Jobs and Freedom-- hearing many including Odetta, Peter Paul &Mary and Rev. King remind us being people, just one group,people, not blacks,reds yellow or whites just people was the answer to so many things…
…Womens Rights, NO F’ING WAR…
It was a Valentine Michael Smith Lovelockian Camelot* of a dream… (available but fragmented on your search engine)
Up until the time the little Billy Baker song below morphed in the a cola commercial --That’s was when my dream was formed.
*No on second thought conceive during the JFK Man to the Moon and Safely Back speech
Clarified by I HAVE A DREAM!
up til the simplest portion, the purest portion of the dream was viewed as a sales tool not a message of hope. 1961-71


And if America is to be a great nation this must become true. So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania!
Let freedom ring from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado!
Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California!
But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia!
Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee!
Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring.
And when this happens, when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, “Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”

What are your 4th of July Dreams
What will your America be 40 years from now.
My dream is still a dream-maybe a bit closer but a dream still. :frowning: :o :mad:
Some days I think didn’t move it very much closer and some days think we didn’t even over-come inertia.

Keeping with the board policy of Letting PM’s Be PMs I’ll PM in the clear
receivermayreveal- thanks you were right for the wrong reason (I think- ck PMs) that photo put me in the mind set of the kid with the pig, burning leeches and drinking care package pop. No matter the broader dreams when you are where he was- trust me- the dream is no bigger than seeing tomorrow’s dawn. Today’s dawn brought this thread.
.Thanks for starting it rolling
