Dare to Dream

I came across this quote today:
“All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible.”
– T. E. Lawrence (of Arabia)
The quote put me in mind of Dr Martin Luther King, whose day we celebrate today… and of Barack Obama, our incoming President, who tomorrow takes office amid many dreams of possibility and hope.
I hope and pray that our new President — with all his optimism and his flaws and his humanness — dreams with his eyes wide open. And perhaps he can teach this country, all beaten down and glum, to dream again, too.
My god, we so need leaders who dare to dream… and who dare to lead!
