I was once called a 'Dunce', and made to sit in front of the class wearing a fool's cap …. simply because I sat and stared out the window, dreaming of becoming an aviator. Of course, today I'd be prescribed some pharmaceutical drug for an Attention Deficit Disorder.
After that humiliating experience, I decided that I didn't want to be a 'flier' after all. I wonder how many of our children today are not going to be able to 'fly high' because they dared to dream? I wonder if Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak of Apple fame, both of them dreamers, ever wore dunce caps?
I wonder when we, as a people, are going to honor and encourage our dreamers instead of making them wear silly hats?

PS: Almost forgot that ultimate dreamer, a guy named Einstein!
