My Daughter’s "Dream"
My daughter has recently turned seven and is learning about Martin Luther King this past week in school. Her teacher gave her a project at school – to write down what she dreams about. Now, we are used to the normal with her :
“I dream I’ll be a princess one day…”
“I dream that I’ll be a cook…”
“I dream that I’ll be like Cinderella…”
…but it was what she wrote that touched me and her mother – so after almost being to the point of tears…I sat her down in front of a mic and had her read her “I Have A Dream” project from school.
Feel free to click on the link to hear her read it. I’ve also included the text below (in her cute mis-spellings) so that you can follow along.
I Have A Dream
by Amber Whitehorn
I want all people to not have to pay alot. because they mite use up all of their money and will be poor. so please don’t use so much money.
I want all snakes to not have pooysen. because if they do the mite bite somewon and and that porson will be hurt. so work hard to not git close to a snake. I want all test to not be hard. because if it is you will git itleste something wrong.
I want every body to Love God and Jesus and beleave in God and Jesus. I want everybody to go to church. And when people go to church don’t be mean cause God and Jesus don’t respect that because that is a sin.
