The impossible Dream!

We need today, more than ever before, people who are willing to be engaged in their personal quest.  People who will reach beyond limits; those who are prepared to live out their dreams and have the courage to do so.

I am reminded of a scene in the musical, “Man of La Mancha.”  Don Quixote was with his visionary dream girl, Dulcinea, answering her question; “What is your quest?”  By singing the popular song, “The Impossible Dream.”

The lyrics (out-of-order) are:

This is my quest

To follow that star

No matter how hopeless

No matter how far

What is your quest?  Where is your star?  We have many who have gone on before us who lived life with no limits.  These were people who kept hope alive and were unaffected by the journey.

To dream the impossible dream

To fight the unbeatable foe

To bear with unbearable sorrow

To run where the brave dare not go

 

We are living in a world today that were the dreams of yesterday.  Yes there were fights; the strong prevailed.  Of course there was pain; they moved forward knowing it was worth it.  They ran where others won’t go; each time being better for it.

And the world will be better for this

That one man, scorned and covered with scars

Still strove with his last ounce of courage

To reach the unreachable star

Nothing else needs to be said.  Just know those who survive, those who make a difference in our world and those who are remembered; lived the impossible dream.
