Come in! Come in!

"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a Hope-er, a Pray-er, a Magic Bean buyer; if you're a pretender, come sit by my fire. For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!" -- Shel Silverstein

"I have been to the mountaintop . . . ."

Crispus Attucks fell so that Rosa Parks could sit,
Rosa Parks sat so that
Dr. Martin Luther King could march,
Dr. Martin Luther King marched so that
Barack Obama could run, and
Barack Obama is running so that our
children and grandchildren can fly."

It's a beautiful vision, no?

Oh, how beautiful! Thank you for posting this.

I had a conversation with some friends over breakfast, that in a way reminds me of this. I'll have to send them the link.
