Dream On

Posted on Friday, September 21, 2012 in Uncategorized

The U.S. presidential election is nearing; Tuesday, November 6, 2012. It’s forty-five days away.  Millions of dollars have been spent on the campaigns.

These are the campaign values I’ve heard: accusations and slander, grumbling and judgments, unrest and disharmony, false hopes and empty promises.

I know it’s a dream, but these are the campaign values that I wish I heard:

Let’s be devoted to one another in love.
Let’s honor one another above yourselves.
Let’s inspire one another on toward love and good deeds.
Let’s live in harmony with one another.
Let’s accept one another.

Let’s encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace.
Let’s serve one another humbly in love.
Let’s bear with – put up with — one another in love.
Let’s be kind and compassionate to one another.
Let’s forgive one another, just as in Christ God forgave you.

Let’s not slander one another.
Let’s not grumble against one another.
Let’s stop passing judgment on one another.

Let’s love one another.

Yes, “Love one another!”, and it will make the world a better place.

Talk is cheap.  “Campaign promises” mean almost nothing. 

I dream on hoping our world will become a more loving place.  This is mysilentscream.

Aerosmith’s classic song “Dream On” comes to mind.

Every time that I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It went by like dusk to dawn
Isn’t that the way
Everybody’s got their dues in life to pay

Yeah, I know nobody knows
Where it comes and where it goes
I know it’s everybody’s sin
You got to lose to know how to win

Half my life’s in books’ written pages
Live and learn from fools and from sages
You know it’s true
All the things you do, come back to you

Sing with me, sing for the years
Sing for the laughter and sing for the tears
Sing with me, if it’s just for today
Maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away

Dream on, dream on, dream on,
Dream yourself a dream come true
Dream on, dream on, dream on,
And dream until your dream comes true
Dream on [7x]

My dream is that one day “love one another” becomes the legacy of our nation.

  1. “I dream on hoping our world will become a more loving place.”
    And you are accomplishing it one person at a time. 🙂 I will try to do my part, but I have to say…sometimes I stumble

  2. Don’t we all.
    Thanks for being a role model for us!
