Helping people reach their dreams Dr. Martin Luther King Jr

How to Make Dreams Come True
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Helping people reach their dreams requires action. On this day we honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. who took his beliefs public. His message and courageous action inspire many.

Immigrants come to the U.S. with dreams. Many realize those dreams. But some did not. And some do not. Speedy was a kind Black man with a broad smile and a willingness to lend a hand to anyone in need. As new immigrants, my father needed a job. He found one within a few weeks but we had no car and there was no public transportation. Speedy faithfully gave my dad a ride until he could save up the money for our first used car. You don't forget the kind things people do.

Most of us will never lead a major rally protesting social injustice. Most of us can reach out to people in need.

Sometimes it doesn't take a lot to help people on their way to reach their dreams.

Sometimes you have to cross the lines of your times.
