I literally wrote this song because of all of my conversations in driving for Lyft here in Colorado Springs, Colorado and from our many divine encounters over the last 6 years of traveling with my Follow Your Dreams Tour across the country and Alaska.

I didn’t realize at the time that I included the instrumental track for America The Beautiful that Pikes Peak was the mountain that inspired that song. I had already planned to put the mountain in the background so it just made it that much more special to me as I stood on top of Pulpit Rock for the filming of this video.

My passion in writing, singing and in wanting to see our country come back together where we become Americans again, helping one another, and encouraging each other, was the driving force behind the creation of this song.

I’m tired of hearing people telling me they’re on the edge of giving up, or helping others pick up the pieces from a loved one who chose to go the way of suicide. I want to be on the other side of this. I want to talk about dreams and hope. Come on neighbors we are better than this. We’ve risen to the challenge in all the wars we’ve fought over the years when we were challenged. We’ve come together as a country and we became stronger. Let’s not let this generation be the one that let’s it all fall apart from within.

We must become the change we want to see, not just keep pointing out the faults and blaming others. I hear immigrants tell me all the time that this is the greatest country in the world. Sure we have short comings, but we can overcome them. We The People are responsible for this country, not the politicians. If real freedom is what really matters to us, then we must stand up, united, and proclaim it. Then we must join our hands together and walk with each other until it becomes a reality. It has taken people to this point of division in our country, but we can be better than they are and we can and must rise above it.

We can change our nation and become that which our ancestors fought so hard to start, the land of the free and home of the brave. Dare we let their blood be in vain? No! I say, “Let us DARE TO DREAM again.”

I was in Charleston, SC the day of the shooting there. That town rejected the hate message and instead, 15,000 of us spanned the 1.9 miles of the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge to show the love. That day, love won. The media were flying helicopters over us and filming. There were folks from all over the world and many different cultures. We were talking to each other and hugging each other. We didn’t even know each other, but it was the passion of love that spurred us on. Love wins! Blessings to you in your journey and Dare To Dream again. Let’s do this.

One of my dreams is to sing this song live in Washington DC, July 4, 2020, to declare these words over America. Let Freedom Ring! Someone once said it’s better to shoot for the stars and land on the moon than never to have dreamed at all. Yes! Let’s see how far we can go! Dreams! They change everything!

DARE TO DREAM – w/m Joseph James

Tommy’s on the front porch sorting through the lies.
Julie’s in the kitchen with tears in her eyes.
Dreams are all planned and a path to run.
Storms all around, can they weather this one?

CHORUS
This is America, where dreams come true!
This is America, home of the red, white, and blue!
This is America, where freedoms ring!
This is America, where we dare to dream!

Ben’s up on the bridge, looking over the rail.
He didn’t see it coming, what an epic fail.
Everything is gone and all seems lost.
Picking up the pieces, is it too great a cost?

Our dreams are all planned as best as we see.
But when it goes bad can we see through the trees.
The forest’s still there, but we’re lost in the night.
If we just keep going, we can find the light.

EVENT INFORMATION | https://www.facebook.com/events/148201769396480/

We all need some clouds in our day to have a beautiful sunset, but sometimes the temporary storms are too much. Then we need some help to walk through it. There should be no shame in needing help, as this shame isolates and magnifies the problem.

God’s Restoration

Sometimes we get separated from people we’re close to, and sometimes lose touch and wonder where they went, but when it comes to a family member, it can be traumatic. I lost touch with my daughter when she was two weeks old. It was the one and only time I’d see her until… God’s Restoration! That restoration birthed a song in me that helped me navigate the journey when the connection was restored. 27 YEARS AGO.

ON COMMON GROUND

Over the last 5.5 years, we have traveled the USA, Canada and Alaska, going where the Lord told us to go with my business paying our way, with the exception of a small amount of donations. We’ve experienced many miracles in the journey and lots of divine appointments when we arrived at our destinations. We mainly stayed in Hilton brand hotels over the last four years, giving us Diamond Status for those four years. We’ve seen a lot and experienced a great deal more. It’s one thing to turn on the news to see what’s going on, it’s another to be there in some of it. Believe me, the actual sometimes has little to do with what’s reported. Even in the churches, there’s a lot being said about those on the outside that’s simply not true in many cases. If we are ever to make any kind of long-lasting difference in our generation, we’re going to have to refocus. ON COMMON GROUND…
