To Dream
When thinking of Martin Luther King, Jr. I always come back to one of his most important messages which was a dream of peace. I'm then reminded of the lyrics of this song from the musical The Man of La Mancha. Such a beautiful story and an inspirational show. So, in honor of Dr. King, I want to remind you… Don't forget to dream!

“Impossible Dream”

 lyrics by Joe Darion and music by Mitch Leigh.

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
And to run where
the brave dare not go
To right the unrightable wrong
And to love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star
This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far
To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march,
march into hell
For that heavenly cause
And I know
If I'll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart
Will lie peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest
And the world will be
better for this
That one man, scorned
and covered with scars,
Still strove with his last
ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable,
the unreachable,
The unreachable star
And I'll always dream
The impossible dream
Yes, and I'll reach
The unreachable star.
