Dream A Little Dream

Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream.  I imagine this experience of Sidney Poitier's would have fit into that dream just fine:
"When I was 15 I was sent to live with my brother in Florida.  One day I was really hungry.  I saw a lady and decided I would ask her if I could do anything around her house for something to eat.  She was a white woman.  And this woman took my mother's son, whom she had never met before, and fed him like my mother would have done.  I came to understand what an internal sense of humanity is.  That was a major point in my life."
Big shoes to fill.
