Martin Luther King Jr.

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."
     "I Have a Dream" speech, August 28, 1963

An amazing dream indeed...what can we do with our children to ensure that we are promoting a future free of race based hatred? What can we do to show that diversity and difference are good things? How can we further the causes of inclusion and equality? Is it enough to teach them not to hate or is it better to show them to love openly?

If you are off work today, enjoy your leisure time. Take some of it to think about why you are off and how we can all work toward making the dream as close reality as possible.
