Can a Dream Change the World?
Your dream can change the world!
Is there anything you have thought you could never accomplish?

Well you were wrong! As long as you have the perseverance to make your dream come true, it can. Your dream can change the world. Good Luck!
“And I can fight only for something that I love, love only what I respect, and respect only what I at least know.” - Hitler
Dreamers that changed the world....
Martin Luther King Jr.
Nelson Mandela
Abraham Lincoln
Charles Darwin
Ben Franklin
Louis Pasteur
Margret Thatcher
Johann Gutenburg
"How can we do that? You were the one who said that if we believe in something greater than our lives, then our voices will only multiply even if we are dead. We can't disown our campaign!' - Malala Yousafzai
Many dreams come true everyday. The difference between a dream, and a dream that can change the world is simple. A dream that changes the world affects the lives of several people. A personal dream can either effect the whole world or just one individual.
Mr. Pickering
Malala believes that all females deserve equal rights. She is an advocate for girls everywhere. She has not changed the world (yet) but she has brought awareness too her cause. In the future we believe she has the potential to change the world.
Thomas Edison
Thomas Edison's dream changed the world. He was a great inventor who created many things. Life without Edison's inventions would be very different.
A Dream...
A dream can be defined as a succession of images, thoughts, or emotions passing through the mind.

Although Hilter's dream was not one that benefitted society, his dream did indeed change the world. He made the world aware of what could happen with extreme power.
Malala Yousafzai
While being interviewed, Mr. Pickering told us his hopes, his dreams, his inspirations, and what it takes to put a dream into action. In the interview, Mr. Pickering explains that dreams do come true, but you need to be persistent with your actions.
