True Inspiration

I just finished reading the galleys for Beyond the Shadows!

In it, I had to write a stirring political speech. On today of all days, I know nothing I could ever make up could come close to the power of one man and the inspiration he has given all of us.

I can invent strife, I can invent inspiration and show you made up people inspired by it. The truth is, reality is so much more powerful than words. I'm humbled by a spirit that was able to change the world. I'm daunted by what I believe he would say now about the struggles we have yet to overcome. I'm inspired by his life and very saddened that he was taken from the world far too soon.

Thank you, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I have a dream.
