I was honored to witness second graders from our Hyannis West Elementary School raise their young voices at the February 14th meeting of the Barnstable School Committee. Students from Ms. Duran’s second grade class kept Martin Luther King’s dream alive through their own words, as they shared their hopes and dreams. Although these students are as young as seven years old, their wisdom is far beyond their years, and their words an inspiration to all “grown-ups.” I am pleased to share a few excerpts from their American Dream speeches:
“I will build houses in our community where people from every country can move to. They will live together peacefully, speaking all kinds of languages." – Stela D.
“I have a dream that my family is not going to be judged by the color of their skin, but by the heart of their own. Don’t let people be judged by their culture or their skin. Look into someone’s eyes and realize they are good inside." – Jacob Z.
“I want the world to be peaceful. I want to be a mayor in a peaceful town, or a town full of peaceful people. In this place love will stop fights.” – Kevin F.“Can you believe that the leaders of the world are grown-ups? I can’t. I may be only 7 years old, but I want to teach them to use words and peace! We can work out our differences with words. Violence is never the answer. I want to see people spreading peace all over the world,…holding hands together.” – Rightassie C."I am a brave and bold young boy who is determined to stop wars of violence and bring back peace." – Hassah A.
