I Have A Dream
I have a dream that one day the whole world will truly live out this creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.”
I have a dream that someday someone from my country can say on a Thursday: “Let’s go to [first world destination] this weekend,” buy the ticket on Friday, and fly out on Saturday — and not have to go through a multi-week visa application process where they are asked questions like “How much of your monthly income do you give to your family?” or “Do you plan to engage in terrorist activities?” (If only all terrorists would be so honest!)
I have a dream that everyone and their four little children will one day live in a world where their intent to travel will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
In the meantime, I have a dream that I will get to use this hard-earned visa again before it expires end of this year! 🙂 Not very likely, to be honest, but…is anything on this dream-list?
