I DARE TO DREAM

1. I dream of a government that will not only acknowledge black and white.

2. I dream of a nation that would treat all its citizens equally.

3. I dream of a people that acknowledge the fact that they are neither black nor white.

4. I dream of a people that believe that all colours of the rainbow are equally beautiful and that each colour has a significant

4. role to play in making the rainbow a beautiful work of art.

5. I dream of a people who believe that, they equally helped to shape this country and fought and sacrificed their lives to enjoy

5. the freedom of our current democracy.

6. I dream of a people that believe in themselves enough to boldly acknowledge each other and openly give praise where praise 6. is due.

7. I dream of a people that believe in acknowledging those who have gone before us even though there are none who have

7. come from behind.

8. I dream of a people that value its young people enough to become their mentors and role models.

9. I dream of a people that will speak out against the evil of substance abuse and will bring hope in hopeless situations.

10. I dream of a people that will use knowledge to empower their brains instead of putting dope in their veins.

11. I dream of a people that will stop believing that they are the salami between the sandwiches but that they are the whole

11. sandwich itself.

12. I dream of a people that will stop believing that they are like crabs that continually drag each other down.

13. I dream of a people that will invest in the youth in their community and in so doing build strong future leadership.

14. I dream of a people that will change the stigma of being labeled gangsters, drunkards, drug lords and not being trustworthy.

15. I dream of a people that will stand up and speak out against stereo types that have marginalized and stigmatized our

15. communities.

16. I dream of a people that will come forward and not talk about change but instead live and be the change that they speak

16. about.

17. I dream of a people that will value life and see the beauty in all of God’s creation.

18. I dream of a people who will live meaningful lives instead of living life meaninglessly.

19. I dream of a people that will invest in the infrastructure development of their own communities and in so doing help to

19. eradicate poverty and create wealth and job opportunities.

20. I dream of a people that will openly celebrate its culture and build monuments to remind the future generation of their

20. heritage and legacy.

21. I dream that this dream will not remain a dream, but that I will continue to seek those who are likeminded, and co-labour to 21. see this dream become a reality in my lifetime.
