I have many wishes for you, but one of the biggest wishes I have for you is this. Love. And love with all your heart. Let that love shine to your family, your friends, your teachers, your bosses, your neighbors, the people you don’t even know.
My wish is a dream, a dream that you won’t let borders get in the way. Opinions, words, laws. Love, just love with all your heart. While I may not ever see eye to eye with every one of your decisions, know that deep down, I love you with all of my heart and soul. Your choices are your own, your destiny is what you make of it.
Don’t let someone else bring you down because of how you feel or who you support. We are a team, our ‘lil family of four, and don’t ever forget that. Love will always win.
Years ago, a very wise man named Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke these words (and they will forever reign true):
And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.”
Keep dreaming, keep loving, keep true.
