How Has the Dream Played Out for You?

A day of love
A day of sharing
A day of giving
A day of service
On this very day
Color has no face
Wrapped in grace
Unity took place
All working for one
One working for all

The brotherhood of love, sharing, giving and service rang out a beautiful symphony after creating seven murals, 32 mosaics, and painting a school. Thousands of people sharing in this glorious day. Today and tomorrow the children will smile The gift of love and giving was one man’s dream. I shared in this dream; a portal to my soul was opened. I have been freed from mental bondage and now i can dream my own dream.
