This piece reflects how many conflicts are going on in our world today, whether it is racial, social, environmental, or deals with terrorism, immigration, violence, or global hunger… This list is never ending. This piece demonstrates how little we individually can control in this massive society we live in, but at the same time shows optimism for better communities and societies inside and outside our nation. Lastly, Dare to Dream encourages people of all kinds and races to love and dream of a golden day where these conflicts might be resolved, and the positives of being grateful and loving in this complex society.
