Are Dreams Becoming Abate?
So many have lost hope it seems. Where is the college dream? Where are the singers talking about signing a big contract? The diminishing talkers and friends going around pumping up college has many wondering. Many Christians aren’t even talking heaven publicly. With a weakened ‘dream factor’ in America, what’s next for the millennial? Some speculate that many have HIV and aren’t telling the public eye. But how can we dilute this problem or even make it dissipate? Can we pray? Or speak that many Gays and Lesbians have gotten through it. They kept trucking. Many still laughed, talked about plans and even desired to love. Of course HIV is not every gay man’s final destination, some have escaped unscathed. But what about straight people? What’s going on out there? Is contention a rare find overall? Who is talking heaven? Or even going to get an MBA? Or Bachelors even? Everyone is not going to meet a star or leader one day who will change their lives forever.
Is the point of departure here for the dreamer? Of course not. I guess with dwindling salaries in Hollywood and in the Music Industry, many have lost touch. They hear of less money, less sparkle and more competition. So many get on TV for free, it drives the wages down. But many are starting ‘cool businesses’ and working on a great future by investing in tomorrow through start ups, technology and more. So we have less dreamers hopping on a Greyhound or SouthWest Airlines plane, and heading to the Golden State for a Modern Day Gold Rush. But we have more remote game developers and others who are planning great things.
What about Emmy’s, Grammy’s and Oscar’s? Are folks waiting to find a rich Bush to live off of? Or are they plotting to just give up on life cause they see a diminishing return as far as investing in the future is concerned? Well, we need bright leaders for tomorrow! We need another Obama who was a college grad who soared to achieve greatness. We can’t have another Jesus perhaps who has accumulated thousands of churches centered around him. But who will be that? One who goes out and speaks with great conviction and heals?
What do we have left? Are pundits spitting out superficial jargon or are they empowering leaders for tomorrow? Time will tell. Let’s keep doing great things. Let’s hang in there. America can still be great. The Christian must speak heaven, maybe it will catch on to even thinking of great ‘heaven-like ventures’ on earth. We can still think heaven and perhaps think of doing something great here on earth while we dream of heaven. Amen.
