Dare to Dream

When you dare to dream you can see your self not just as you are now but as you can be. Some of the greatest people in history were just ordinary people who could see them selves making a difference in the world.

There are so many things wrong with our nation and our world right now that we need heroes, not the heroes that ride in on a white horse and shoot the bad guys with silver bullets, but ordinary people who are willing to be good examples. We are in the middle of a health care crisis that we created by over eating, consuming chemicals and not exercising. Be a light in the darkness. Dream of your self being an example of a better way.

Don't worry that you are out there in front of God and everybody walking or running when you are carrying a lot of extra fluff. You are a point of hope for others who have been afraid to be seen exercising because of their own fluff.

Be an outspoken voice against the filth that is clogging the Internet. Our cyber world is a wonderful place, but it's also a playground for people with no morals. We need to say "Hell No" to the people who are doing horrible things to other people, videoing it and posting it on the net. When you see that kind of crap email your congressmen and senators, email the attorney general. Express your displeasure to everyone you can think of. Don't be silent, be a voice for what's right.

Tell the people who are on the front lines you are proud of them. Tell your child's teacher that you know how much courage it takes to be responsible for our future generations learning. Wave at the policeman you see driving their routes, let them know you support them. If you know someone who has a son or daughter serving in the military, let them know you are proud of them.

We are all such a tiny part of our world but if enough of us try just a little harder to be more involved we can begin to make a difference. But it all starts with each one of us dreaming that we can be better and take the steps to improve our selves.

Thanks for reading.
