I have a dream that one day…

I have a dream that one day we will grow up to realize what kind of a world we have created. We have taken this beautiful world for granted too many times and I say that it’s time for change!

I have a dream that one day our world will come together as one and fix the mess that we have left behind in our tracks. It seems to me that everyone has forgotten what South Africa, our great and beautiful country, is all about. Being free does not mean being violent and cruel to your environment, your peers, or your world. This all just goes back to the saying, “You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone.”

I have a dream that one day I’ll be able to look up in the sky and be able to say that South Africa has finally found it’s purpose on this planet. I have high hopes for this country and I want to see these hopes fulfilled in my lifetime. I would like to see a day when nobody anywhere is harmed emotionally or physically by racism, violence, or drugs. I want to see a day when nobody comes running to me because somebody or something has hurt him/her and ruined his/her day.

I have a dream that one day I can be able to walk through the park without the fear of something happening to myself or others. The thought of something horrible happening to yourself is scary enough. If you want to relax by taking a walk through the park then you should be able to do just that.

I have a dream that one day we will all learn to get along with each other. I hope that everyone out there suddenly realizes that no matter how intelligent or unintelligent, beautiful or ugly, slim or overweight we must all be treated the same.

I have a dream that one day our great world will leave it’s problems in the past and begin to build a better future. Worrying about what has already happened causes stress and worry.

    I have a dream I have a very interesting dream. I dream to be a man. When I was a little girl in the countryside, I was told to do all kinds of housework, cooking, washing and cleaning. One time, when I was washing clothes for my elder brother, I asked my mother: “mum, brother never does any housework, can’t he even wash his own clothes?” Mum patted me affectionately on the head and said: “well, you’re a girl, dear, we should serve the men.” “But why? Are girls inferior to the boys?” Just at that…
