Dream Big - A World to Share

“When I grow up, I want to be a gymnast,” our daughter announced. I was a bit surprised. Today, everyone was allowed to dress up for school in the profession they dreamed of, as part of the Dream Big Event happening in the gymnasium that evening.

You could unleash your creativity with building blocks, create your own little book, or study real chef’s knives. But among the firefighters, ballerinas, geologists, and engineers, you could also find the tables of philanthropists and the flower shop. The children could assemble food packages for the Tulsa Day Center and make small flower bouquets to give away.

Is it dreaming of a world where we share what we have and no one goes without? Or a closet full of sparkly outfits and a world where you get to keep the flower bouquet for yourself? Or perhaps something in between?
