Listen To My Dream by Debi Pearl Book Review

July 5th, 2010 by wys

History shows that some men have the ability to call to others to rise, stand and be counted for something greater than self. These are the purveyors of hope, individuals that spur others on to a higher calling, a nobler purpose. These inspire others to dream of more, to dare to reach for the possibilities.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. lived his life in this way. His life is in contrast with others that loved fame and sought to be well-known. It was not enough that the laws of the land be changed; He pressed for individuals to have their hearts turned to do right. He encouraged others to live their lives in pursuit of excellence.

What changed King from being an average preacher to an international figure calling for change? It started when Martin Luther King met Coretta Scott. Coretta and Martin Luther both loved opera. That was what brought them together for their first date. The following spring, King proposed to Scott and she accepted while agreeing to support his calling as a preacher. After the incident where Rosa Parks was arrested in 1955 for not giving up her bus seat to a white man, King was called and with Coretta’s permission, accepted the position of leading the boycott against the bus system that propelled him to a more prominent stage in life. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. went on to inspire change amongst his followers by taking action to gain certain civil rights such as the right to vote, the right to gather to talk and the right to march.

With Dr. King as her inspiration, a Tennessee grandmother has written a tribute entitled, Listen To My Dream.

This volume is the first children’s book written by Debi Pearl. With her husband, Michael Pearl, as illustrator, Mrs. Pearl has managed to produce a work that continues the call of Dr. King to the next generation. The book is available now and was made possible with the cooperation of the Heirs of the Estate of Martin Luther King, Jr.
