American Dream breakfast Tuesday

If you asked me to pick one photo, one poem, and one quote of what the American Dream means to me, here are my choices.

See the friend in every face
See the neighbor in every name
See the American in every immigrant

This quote:
• Do not make people feel oppressed, humiliated, de-energized, or belittled.
• Do not mistreat people who are less powerful than you.
• Focus on win-win.
• Focus on ways you are no better or even worse than others.
• Focus on ways you are similar to people, not different.

I will be joining a few hundred other people to celebrate the American Dream tomorrow, Tuesday, at the fourth annual American Dream breakfast at Lipscomb University. Starting at 7:30 a.m., the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition will present the Johnny Hayes American Dream Award to Mr. Daoud Abudiab, the Welcoming Tennessee Award to Nashville Public Television, and the Face of Courage Award to Mrs. Cristina Condori.

The celebration is open to the public. More information here.
