Dreams Dashed but not Broken

Watched the DREAM Act debate in the US Senate today. Hoped and prayed that the votes would be enough to allow this legislation to move forward but it did not happen today. This legislation would open the door for so many young people, some of whom are discerning a vocation. But more than that it would have allowed children growing up here in the U.S. the opportunity to dream, to participate, to share, to live, to be...

In the words of John Kennedy "Let us think of education as the means of developing our greatest abilities, because in each of us there is a private hope and dream which, fulfilled, can be translated into benefit for everyone and greater strength for our nation."

I am feeling sad and disappointed at the moment but have hope that this legislation will come back for another vote soon.
