Dreamers Pledge

  • I pledge to live in the light because I will soon be able to live out of the shadows, in the United States of America, the country which I have adopted as my own.
  • I will strive to reach my maximum potential for I know that in me are deposited the hopes and dreams of my family and my community.
  • I understand that I will be held to a higher standard of behavior than others and I vow to carry out my personal life always exhibiting only exemplary comportment in my daily life.
  • I will only seek out the company of those who also walk in the light.
  • I will remain engaged to the plight of those who are forced to live in the shadows so that one day they too may walk out of the shadows.

Thank You For Protecting The Dream:
