We Shall Overcome


“The hope of a secure and livable world lies with disciplined nonconformists who are dedicated to justice, peace and brotherhood.” -Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Dr. King not only had a dream for the United States of America, but his dream included all men and women that run this human race. He realized that in order to produce a positive change we must come together as one body and lift each other up in the name of brotherly love.

When we think of the atrocities taking place in our world it may seem a bit overwhelming and discouraging. You may ask “what can I do as one person to make this world a brighter place?” That is when we need to realize that “Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could only do a little.” - Edmond Burke

There will always be negative and there will always be positive. We decide on an individual basis which energy we choose to put out into the world. If you believe in the hope for a secure and livable world you must first make the change within yourself. Once we change our hearts and minds and focus on the pursuit of happiness, freedom, and justice a change will surly come.

Oh, deep in my heart
I do believe
We shall overcome some day
We'll walk hand in hand
We shall all be free
We are not afraid
We are not alone
The whole wide world around
We shall overcome some day
Lyrics from “We Shall Overcome”

-Shannon

If we always remember that change begins with each of us. If we only change a little it can blossom into a lot. Its important to say focused and dedicated good things will come with effort. There will be walls that we must overcome but if you really want something you would not let anything stop you. The joy you get onces you have made a positive change in someones life is a magical momment. I just hope and pray that I can make others feel that way. Because I DO BELIEVE.
