I Have a Dream Too- The fact is we all have a dream that like a piece of a puzzle, fits together to not only allow us to come up as individuals, but allows us as a community to come up as well. This chapter is dedicated to not just talking about how things are but how they could be. The voices here challenge us to dream big enough so that our goals build us up, our communities, and our world. Sadly, many in society have lost this capacity to dream. Part of the reason why the voices of youth need to be taken off mute is so they can begin re-igniting this capacity in a world that dreams too small and too selfishly. Remixing the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., youth in this section demonstrate that art is the artillery to deconstruct the nightmares we experience; and simultaneously it is the tool needed to construct dreams of a brighter future. Helen Keller (a blind author) says it is such a shame when people have sight but no vision. We welcome you to experience the writers who are reaching beyond individual definitions of success to lay hold of a life of significance, and in doing so are inspiring other to realize “ I have a dream too!”

Great quote that should be flipped into a fresh piece!

To dream of what is possible and to put oneself in service of that dream is the formula for a life well lived.–Pete Benson
