I (Also) Have a Dream

Dreaming Our World Into Existance


As promised, this is the second of two inspirational posts from my childhood. This time it is the MLK Day short essay by my brother, the realist, John. Here we go!

I Have a Dream

By John Edson Porter

I had a dream to fix everything in the school. It would be neat.

All the computers would be fixed. And everything would work. All the food would be good. All the kids would be nice. We would know more math. We would buy more pencils, and wash floors, and tables, and buy computers. Kids wouldn’t make fun of people with glasses. We would donate books and get more chapter books. We could get more drinking faucets.

It’s all about the computers. I can only imagine the wonder inside his head as he imagined his world into a better existence.
