Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Has a
Dream for Jazz
Everybody has the Blues. Everybody longs for
meaning. Everybody needs to love and be

there is a stepping stone towards all of these.
My personal New Year’s resolutions have
already been made and broken (I’ve enjoyed
sugar, incurred library fines, consistently slept
fewer than 6 hours, and not done enough
weight training. How about you?), but I’m
hopeful that I will continue to follow through with
my teaching resolutions. --This article is 2
