The film, ‘Straight Outta Compton” reminds us that we can give birth to dreams in the unlikeliest of places. While gun violence, police brutality and racial profiling may not plague us, all of us know what it is to be in a place where our dreams seem impossible, unreachable, and unrealistic. In this week’s podcast I use the Valley of Dry Bones to speak life back into your dreams and let you know that wherever your dreams are stuck, you can come Straight Outta’ that place.
