19 Ramadan 2014: I have a Dream

“I have a dream today” – Martin Luther King Jr


As we start the last third of this blessed month, the third of salvation and countdown to the ‘farewell’, today’s thought is also a reflection …

I have a dream that …

  • what is wrong is seen as wrong through the assessment of harm to oneself and others
  • all accept and respect the differences within humanity, i.e. race, color, faith, and move on
  • no one tries to ‘fix’ others based on own opinions as opposed to research, study and discussion with an open mind
  • all focus on and look for the positive side of others
  • we all pardon
  • every person has the right and ability to provide their own products and services to an open market to make their own living
  • research is done for the sake of people and improvement and not money
  • gossip stops
  • no one wonders if food is ‘safe’ for consumption
  • we smile more
  • we all realise that no one is better than anyone
  • we all believe in a day of judgement and are accountable for our actions
  • all debts are fulfilled and everyone is free to start anew
  • children enjoy their childhood without being bombarded by consumerism
  • children are children until at least their teens
  • education is fulfilling, empowering and joyous for both young and old
  • we respect each other
  • we say ‘i love you’ and ‘i miss you’

I am not saying these are right or wrong. I am not saying you should like them or not. I am not even saying that I am actually doing all those I list. I am just sharing mine

… what is yours?
