Today marks 50 years since Martin Luther King, Jr. made his “I Have a Dream” speech. While a lot has changed in the past 50 years there is a lot that still remains the same.
My favorite is the human nature to dream. I spend most of my time dreaming. I dream of what I want my senior year of college to be like. I dream of what I want to do once I graduate. I dream of what I want my future to look like and the mark that I want to leave on the world. I dream of ways to make my desires a reality.
Wofford has influenced a lot of my dreams and made me dream for things I didn’t know existed. 3 years ago I was moving into my freshman dorm, in the same way that our Class of 2017 is doing today, with a dream. The important thing is to hold onto that dream, change it as you change, make it grow, and make the effort to make it a reality.
As Kid President said today “We all have a duty to make sure the world keeps dreaming of better things.”
