The Sound of MLK’s Music
It’s Martin Luther King Day, and as his tremendously inspiring quotes poured across Twitter and Facebook , their poignancy struck countless people.
But as I read them, they also brought to mind the words from a musical, The Sound of Music, that I absolutely adored as a child:
Climb every mountain
Ford every stream
Follow every rainbow
‘Til you find your dream
A dream that will need
All the love you can give
Every day of your life
For as long as you live….
And as I reflected on those who are working so courageously to restore the health of our families, I found myself flooded with gratitude for that dream.
As “courage faces fear and thereby masters it” said Martin Luther King, Jr.
Yes, for the sake of our children, yes, it does. And to restore the integrity of our food supply is a dream that needs all the love we can give.
