I DREAM OF THINGS THAT NEVER WERE

George Bernard Shaw wrote “Some men see things as they are and say “Why?”  I dream of things that never were and say “Why not?”  This quotation is frequently attributed to Robert F. (Bobby) Kennedy who used it in a speech which his brother “Edward F (Teddy) Kennedy quoted at RFK’s funeral. Authorship belongs to George Bernard Shaw.

Part of the problem with using quotations is trying to be certain you are attributing to the right person.

The following is my contribution – to I DREAM OF THINGS.

I dream of living a long life and remaining alert and aware:

I dream of witnessing my grandchildren graduation from college and perhaps marrying and become parents themselves.

I dream of a world where racism does not exist and Human beings can live together on our planet without threatening its annihilation;

I dream of a world without disease, without illness and without rapists and pedophiles.
I dream of all the things that never were and perhaps never will be.

But to quote George, “Why not?”
