Reflections on Nati­onal Action to Realize the Dream 

I have been reflecting on the importance of the National Action to Realize the Dream march on August 24, 2013, in Washington, D.C. It was a huge, very diverse march with people coming from all over the country to be part of a historic event. 

Why does it feel that while the movement is still alive, the energy and vision are missing?
