Dream Can Move Mountains
Abba Song: "I Have A Dream" _ Dream Is Beautiful and Powerful!
"I have a dream, a song to sing to help me cope with anything if you see the wonder of a fairy tale, You
can take the future even if you fail I believe in angels Something good in everything I see I believe
in angels When I know the time is right for me I'll cross the stream, I have a dream I have a dream,
a fantasy To help me through reality And my destination makes it worth the while Pushing through the darkness
still another mile I believe in angels Something good in everything I see I believe in angels When I know
the time is right for me I'll cross the stream, I have a dream I'll cross the stream, I have a dream I
dream, a song to sing To help me cope with anything If you see the wonder of a fairy tale You can take the
future even if you fail I believe in angels Something good in everything I see I believe in angels When I
know the time is right for me I'll cross the stream, I have a dream I'll cross the stream, I have a dream."
The reason I posted this song lines because I love this song so much. I forget how many times I have
this song. But each time I hear of the song, it just like something always hits my heart and brings me back
to my childhood.
When I was little I started to know I wasn’t a smart kid. My scores were lower than the average. Each
time I did something like homework, I remember, I always needed to take more time than others. I
am not smart. The reason, it is caused probably, I think, that I had been suffered from the deadly
illness when I was 6 years old. After that, I remember,
I couldn’t even keep count the numbers after 100. From that time I started to realize I needed studied and
worked harder than others just like the story “the Turtle & Rabbit race”. That is the way I could dp
better in my life.. Because this I started have more dreams…….
I dreamed of being professional basketball player. I did… I dreamed of becoming engineer, I did…and
when I grew up I dreamed of going to the United States, I finally did.
Without the dreams, just like car without gas, without dreams just like trees lack of water, and without
dreams just like person out of foods. You feel no energy, no hope and no future at all. Dreams can make
me feel I have hopes …… Dreams are so beautiful; it could make me feel I could have more in life, and dreams
could move mountains….. When I have dreams plus believe……. No one could stop me doing anything. It just
I remember in 1982, I was on the train from Shanghai back to Nanning, the capital of Guangxi province. I
was reading something by the window. One old man walked and sat next to me. He started to talk to me:
“What are you reading?” he asked.
“An English book”, I answered. The reason I studied English because I tried to be a science and tech
interpreter. In some ways, I believed, I could do better than doing my engineer job.
“That is great” he was so excited.
“Try to go which country? England or America?” he asked with smiling.
“Country?” answered with surprised. “I never thought about it” I added. But my mind felled like shocked
by electric current and all the sudden my mind was opened.
“You know, I just came back from visiting my daughter. She is in Mississippi State of America, studying
mechanics in Mississippi State University. She told me how much she loves there………” He started talking
his daughter's story………
“I suggest you should go there. There are more opportunities. Try to have another kind of life.” He
sounded honestly. At the moment, I really felled his words coming truly from his button of the heart. …………….
All the sudden, I felled my future was so bright….. I honestly say I didn’t know how I could go to the
United States and what kind of qualifications I needed, but I did know I needed to study English.
After that journey, I started my new dream: go to the United States for studying…. And I dreamed about
talking and discussing projects with professor… I dreamed of driving along the Mississippi river …….
And I dreamed of kissing the Status of Liberty in New York Harbor…….
After two years hard studying and preparing, I was admitted to pursue MBA in Hawaii Pacific University
in Honolulu. You can imagine how surprised and happy I felled at that moment….. Only me can understand
why. I am not that such excellent student graduated from big university like Beijing University...
in China……. I just graduated from a very common university in home town……
I was so excited to tell every friends and relatives and shared the happiness with them....
I remember how much hard to get my visa to come to United States. Here is my story:
I went to,after I got the I-20 from Hawaii Pacific University, the US Embassy in Guangzhou for visa.
My friends and my brother were so exciting and came with me.
Just exactly like saying goes, “Extreme joy begets sorrow”. My visa was rejected by the officer.
Some people started laughing at me….. “I told you he is not the person can go to the United States,
otherwise everyone can do.” I did felt very sad when I heard of someone said that, but I just forgot
about what they said. I believed in myself. Nobody could pull me down.
I tried second time and only my brother and one friend came with me.The result was the same, rejected…….
Before trying the third time, my father finally talked to me: “Son, come and sit here. I am so proud
of you. You have dreams, you have passions and you study and work harder. I know how hard for you to go
to the United States. I feel even harder than go to the moon. But I still encourage you try again. but if
you fail this time, listen to me, you just keep staying in China. You know China start taking off
right now. You still have good future here……”
“Dad, you know me. After I decide to do something, no one can stop me. When I was little I was just
like that. I need to try until I can make it.” I calmly and firmly talked to him……..
And the third time I went the Ambassy alone, but I finally got the my visa.
Folks, never stop your dreams, keep dreaming...........
"I have a dream, a song to sing To help me cope with anything If you see the wonder of a fairy tale
You can take the future even if you fail I believe in angels Something good in everything I
see I believe
in angels When I know the time is right for me I'll cross the stream, I have a dream……..”
