A Dream: Not a Nicety, But a Necessity

Martin Luther King Jr

Fifty-four years ago, in a time marked by with civil unrest, hatred and violence, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr stood on the steps of Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., in front of 250,000 people, and passionately declared:

I have a dream.

He did not declare, “I have a vision.”

Nor, “I have a strategy.”

Nor, a 13-point plan.

Nor, one word for the year as is common in this time of short attention spans and instant gratification.


Martin Luther King Jr boldly declared he had a dream. A dream that became part of his legacy.

At a time eerily similar to today, he started with a dream. Not a luxury nor a nicety, but a necessity – to guide him and his supporters and followers in the work to come.

What is your dream? The dream that will, one day, become your legacy.
