Writer's Block: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

What is your dream for your children?
The brilliantly written Sorkin answer? "If fidelity to freedom and democracy is the code of our civic religion, then surely the code of our humanity is faithful service to that unwritten commandment that says 'We shall give our children better than we ourselves had.'"

The less eloquent answer? I want my kids to be happy, high-functioning, well-adjusted children who grow into happy, high-functioning, well-adjusted adults. And those three things are based off of what they want their lives to be~you can be happy, high-functioning, and well-adjusted in damn near any place or occupation if you live or do what you love.
