Martin Luther King Day 2016

mlk s

I have a dream I have a dream
what color is it black and white
rising into songs of freedom
promising to free the light

An open path across the land
I have a dream I have a dream
repeat the bridge come take my hand
no turning back now voices join

Our crossing reaches to the sky
our thirst for freedom rises strong
I have a dream I have a dream
no longer silent come along

No shadowed words will cloud the sun
no definitions cut between
the boundaries will be undone
I have a dream I have a dream

Almost 50 years…but his words and spirit will never die.

    Especially love the music sheet incorporated into the collage: makes it sing! Hope you are having a great (although cold) day.
