Do You Have a Dream?

do-you-have-a-dreamI am living Reverend King’s dream and as such, I am inspired to dream.

I have a dream. It is a dream inspired by King before I was born, and now charged with my own spirit. It is a dream that I can continue his dream and help create an even more open world for my daughter and the children of her generation.

It is a dream that one day my daughter’s spirit will know the freedom of a world in which her dreams are not seen as unusual or lofty because of a trait she has no control over. Where she is not just a trailblazer but a member of an expanding team.

I dream of a world where her mere presence is not more inspiring than the deeds she’s done. Where her uniqueness does not cause others to prejudge her capabilities, dreams and ambitions. Where she is accepted for who she is and who she wants to become.

I dream of a day when my daughter need not justify her passions to those who cling to legacy beliefs. Where her reasons and choices are heard and respected and not assumed or ridiculed based on genetic demographics.

I dream of a world where my daughter knows she has real choices in who she wants to be, whom she wants to be with and what she wants to do.

kids-playing-togetherI dream of a world where my daughter is safe to go about her day or night without fear of random madness. Where fear, anger and sadness no longer rule human interactions.

I dream of inspiring my daughter to find her own dream and of building her passion to succeed at it.

I have a dream that one day, we will succeed in changing the world and my daughter and the children of her generation will be free to dream a new dream.

  6. Hello and congratulations on Freshly Pressed! I hope your MLK Day in Hawaii is/was productive and impactful. πŸ™‚ I live in Chicago and the day is almost coming to a close.

    • Supovadea says:

      Mahalo. πŸ™‚ I’m in Colorado now. I spent my day volunteering at a safe house teaching children how to make it snow and rain in bottles. It was both productive and impactful. Several of the children were so excited they couldn’t wait to try the experiment in larger bottles of different shapes to see what would happen. I hope your day in Chicago was just as impactful.

      • Thank you but unfortunately the Polar Vortex won’t go away. It’s really cold in Chicago and I must learn to make it snow in bottles. That sounds like an amazing effect.

    I loved Martin Luther kings approach and heart but…
    Let’s be honest.. His dream was temporary for America. Let’s look at today. Almost all black women in America (3esp in the public) are trying to be whiter than ever. What’s that about?
    Seems like his dream has been disrespected by money, power, and weakness

  25. I think that every mother has this dream for their daughters, regardless of their heritage. Thank you for putting it so eloquently.

  26. Supovadea says:

    Mahalo everyone for the reads, shares, follows and comments. I am overwhelmed by the response to my post and am honored my thoughts resonated with so many. I am a dreamer but I try to be an active trailblazer, as well. I thank all of you for your inspiration.

  27. Joyce says:

    Nice one!! Love it!!

  28. Such avant-garde thoughts.

  29. Katherine Jean Legry says:

    That’s the nicest thing I have ever heard a mother say. I love it when you dream.

      • katherinejlegry says:

        I don’t know if you’re interested, but I recently (as well as I was late) came across the panel discussion at The New School in NYC where bell hooks made comments about Beyonce being “anti-feminist” and a “terrorist” to girls in particular regards to her more recent appearance on the cover of Time magazine. I am an unapologetic fan of bell hooks and equally unapologetic for my being a non-fan of Beyonce, although I could emphasis with certain aspects of Beyonces “defenders” most of whom felt the need to tear bell hooks down in retaliation. In any case, bell hooks nuanced deconstructive observations of culture, history, language, etc. got lost under the canopy of her revolutionary statements about Beyonce. The power of images, saturation of images on society, and the topics of gender/race, sexuality/ objectification/ slavery and beauty as well as an over arcing emphasis on creativity and personal experience/expression as true female power and identity were touched on. I thought you might be interested considering you are a girl power advocate as well as an accomplished mother and career woman.

    Hey, Yes, I have a dream, for me, for my girls, for my family. That is what I came to share here on WordPress. And Yes, I wish I could do much more for them, but I do not lose hope. As they grow older, they tell me they have not been certain places and done certain things; I tell them that life has seasons, if we sow in the right season, the season for reaping will come. I let them know that there are always joys to be found in life no matter how old one is. The things you missed in childhood, you will not really mind when you are grown. However, we hold on to hope that the things we desire, we will have an opportunity to get a hold of them sooner than later.

    And yes, I pray that my children will continue to grow up and blossom and exceed their own expectations, learn to live on and do better in spite of the prejudice they might face. We are all on earth for a purpose and we each must learn from the others, if we are learning at all.

    Thanks for sharing this beautiful writing.

    • Supovadea says:

      Mahalo for your beautiful words, as well. I love the idea of sowing in one season to reap the rewards in another. That is what we always do when we make plans for the future. I add my prayers to your that your children will also blossom and exceed their own expectations. It’s a worthy dream for all our children.
      Aloha no!

    We cant live without a dream everybody have a dream, the problem is knowing how to explore our dreams and to bring our dreams into reality

    • Supovadea says:

      Mahalo for the reblog. πŸ™‚ Yes, it is hard to find out how to bring a dream into reality. No one can tell anyone how to do it, although many will try. It has to be a personal journey because dreams are personal. But others can guide you on your way. For me, I only needed to read about how others I admired tried to get where they are and try to emulate some of what I could. Eventually, I started to have some success in the right directions, but it is still a constant journey. Don’t give up. Just change tactics.

  38. I really enjoyed reading this, thank you for sharing. I’m realising more and more the importance and value of our dreams, especially as women. The freedom to believe and know that we can be anything we want to be, is in itself liberating. I will definitely re blog this as I think it will really encourage my own readers.

    Thanks you πŸ™‚

    • Supovadea says:

      Mahalo for the reblog. πŸ™‚ It is definitely liberating having a dream and knowing you can do it if you believe. The hard part is convincing people to believe in themselves. Sometimes the best way to convince them is to chase your own dream and bring some of them along for the ride. In my journey, I’ve managed to bring a few of my once negative friends along and they have begun chasing their dreams, too. The key may be proving to people they have the right to dream and the right to believe in dreams.

    Two years later, and my dream is still relevant. Possibly even more now than it was two years ago. There is more anxiety in the world now. Events have transpired to increase fear, misconceptions, and distrust. Voices of discord have become the loudest, and fear mongering the norm.
    But I still hold tight to the ambitious dream, that my daughter and the children of her generation will be free to have a new dream born of peace and hope.
