If I Can Dream

Well, would you say America has now hit rock bottom? I would.  We are being pelted with one thing after another and there is no logical end in sight.  It took years for us to get here and without real change it may take centuries for us to dig our way out.

But there is hope! Hope for a praying nation, ready to humble themselves and start again. Elvis sang a song in 1968 which I believe sums it up.  The words are…

There must be lights burning brighter, somewhere 
Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue 
If I can dream of a better land 
Where all my brothers walk hand in hand 
Tell my why, oh why, oh why can’t my dream come true, oh why 

There must be peace and understanding, sometime 
Strong winds of promis that will blow away 
All the doubt and fear 
If I can dream of a warmer sun 
Where hope keeps shining on everyone 
Tell me why, oh why, oh why won’t that sun appear 

We’re lost in a cloud 
With too much rain 
We’re trapped in a world 
That’s troubled with pain 
But as long as a man 
Has the strenght to dream 
He can redeem his soul and fly (He can fly) 

Deep in my heart there’s a trembling question 
Still I am sure that the answer gonna come, somehow 
Out there in the dark, there’s a beckoning candle 
And while I can think, while I can talk 
while I can stand, while I can walk 
While I can dream, please let my dream 
Come true, right now 
Let it come true right now 
Oh yeah
