Sing a song of glory, and you’ll be that glory;
Naught are you but song, and as you sing you are.
“Remember, if you can, Martin Luther King Jr’s “I Have a Dream” speech. Dr. King developed and refined his dream over many years and gave voice to his “song of glory” – his dream of a nation undivided by prejudice and hatred. Many listened and took courageous steps toward greater racial equality and harmony as a result. But the song is not finished and did not die with him. The song lives on, touching and inspiring others with its power and affirmation. People continue to sing that song of freedom and equality. His courage to dream and put forth that dream has been a great gift for us all.”
Robert E. Staub II, in The 7 Acts of Courage (New Edition 2016).
So what is your song of glory? To be best parent ever? To create a successful business and provide happy employment for many? To visit another planet?
