Thinking about Martin Luther King, Jr. Day reminded me about my dream.

Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream.  He wanted to make the world a better place so he helped give people rights.

I had a dream that I helped preemies and then all babies aren’t born early anymore. 

So how can I really do this?  I think of it like like a train and all the train stations.  The first stop is the Seeing Station where everyone sees my blog.  The next stop is the Reading Station and everyone there reads my blog about my dream.  The last stop is the Doing Station where everyone (hopefully) helps do what my dream is – help fighting for preemies.

So far, all of my other dreams came true.  And I hope this one will come true too!

    Howdy all!! I’m not quite sure who reads this but im leaving this comment in hopes that Joshua or his family will see it. I am a sophomore in the Corps of CAdets at Texas A&M, and every year we have what i have heard is the biggest, most profitable march in the country. Its called March to the Brazos, which is an 18 mile, round trip walk that almost 1800 cadets plus military officers and non-commissioned officers make every year, and all the money made is donated to March of Dimes, in addition to the amount that each individual outfit within the corps raises.

    This is the first time that ive heard March of Dimes has a “poster child” of some sort. I think it would be very motivating if Josh and his family could meet us out there, and talk to the corps about what exactly were doing, and the impact we’re making for families. We would love to have Josh there, and hear his story firsthand, and how the March of Dimes saved his life, and how many more like his could be saved as well.
