When I was 3 years old I recited the I have a dream speech by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. My favorite part of the speech is toward the end Dr. King writes in his speech "Let us not wallow in the valley of despair, I say to you today, my friends. And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal." I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood. I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today!"
My dreams oh all of my dreams. I have a dream today that this world we live in will become united, that things like cancer didn't exist and homeless people where no longer existing. My dreams stretch further than my own personal problems, however my dreams are all parallel to those of Dr. King. The idea that America is still not quite there drives me crazy. I have a dream that I will graduate from Bowie State, go to law school and be an amazing wife, mother, and professional. I have a dream I will never have to hear the word cancer again after chemo.
I have a dream that the things the my heart desire were easily obtained. I have a dream that every human body were treated equally. I have a dream that the world were color blind and the amount of money meant nothing compared to the love and compassion you carried in your heart. I have these dreams that the world is going to become a better place and one day we the people will be united. Until they become reality I will continue to dream.

Here we are back in at it, I'm sorry I've been gone folks but I have really been trying to get my life together and I realized it's in shambles because I haven't been blogging and getting my thoughts out on paper and I am so sorry for my lack of consistance. Nevertheless I have began my road to healing for 2014. I am not all the way there but cancer will still not be something to defeat me. Blood work early Wednesday morning wish me luck :)
