Survivor’s Dream

On a summers day in August 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King gave his most popular speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. His speech was mostly in regards to the inequity of race relations in the country at the time. Fast forward to February 16th, 2017: Listening to the speech brought to mind how we, as survivors here at Cassell & Associates, also “Have a Dream” of equality, acceptance and understanding. The “Dream” is that we will be seen and respected for abilities rather than our disabilities. That we have a place in our society, a society that strives to understand and accept us as constructive members of this society. So on this day let us all “Have A Dream” that we all can live in a world of Love, Hope and Kindness no matter what our circumstances.
That’s this Survivor’s “Dream!”
