The Dream

This month we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for his commitment to social justice and having the courage to dream of a better world for all. When he speaks of "the dream", I think of the opportunities we now have because of the sacrifices of our ancestors. So I asked myself a question that I want to now ask you. Whose dream are you living? Who is that person in your life that paved the way for you to be who you are? For me, it was my uncle Eugene McCall Jr. He was legally blind and the first person in our family to earn a 4 year degree. After graduating from Eastern Michigan University, he moved to Milwaukee to teach middle school for 24 years. In 2004, he earned his masters degree in Educational Leadership in hopes to become a principal. He would never get that chance due to his untimely death in 2007. Everyday I realize that I get to live his dream. It is very important that I take my role seriously not only for the children we serve, but for the many people that I owe to do the right thing. I hope that you take sometime to think about whose dream you are living. I believe that it encourages humility and help us to realize how blessed we are.

Have a great week KHS!
