As Abraham Lincoln himself said;
"In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years."Then thoughts of one great man roamed to the next, as I realised I was basking under the sunshine right beside the pool where Martin Luther King gave his famous "I have a dream" speech. I still remember the days I spent dissecting the "I have a dream" speech with my pupils to explore the importance of being socially ethical and try to inspire them to find their own dreams during my teaching days.......perhaps in many ways I am still looking for a dream and will continue to do so in my old age.....I pondered.
