It was a beautiful summer day. The sun was shining as tens of thousands of people stood watching and listening in anticipation of what was to come. And as he began to speak, one can only imagine the electricity filling the mall that day. He spoke of challenges...he spoke of equality...he spoke of justice...he presented a dream. A dream deferred.
But, that dream did not "dry up like a raisin in the sun". It was a dream that festered and began to run infecting all who heard him speak that day. Infecting all who would hear of him after that day. On that day, he told the citizenry that the stench of bigotry and racism could and would no longer be tolerated. He told the citizenry that history could not be re-written in such a way as to sugar-coat the horrors resulting from man's inhumanity to man. He challenged all those listening and those who would some day listen to sag not or give up because in his dream he saw a better day. In his dream he saw freedom.
What happens to a dream deferred?
like a syrupy sweet?
