What I liked about it? The idea of making you think of your dream, the beautiful background music, the imaginative way of representing our dreams, EVERYTHING.
After typing in your dream, you can share it via Twitter, facebook or even embed it, like I did just below:
My dream was: I wish one day all nations would be united in peace, helping each other overcome their difficulties and learn to respect their differences.
