    New York – Bernard Lagat has a dream.

    No, not the obvious ones – of winning the classic Wanamaker Mile at the Millrose Games for a sixth time this Friday night at Madison Square Garden, or far more importantly, running to one – or maybe even two – gold medals at the Beijing Olympic Games.

    This dream transcends sport. This one relates to “the real world” beyond the athletic arenas of the universe, this one relates to “real people” and the real horrors of the political unrest currently tearing apart his homeland of Kenya, and the resultant deaths of over 800 people, two international athletes among them, thus far.
