Now We Will

I don’t think I’ve ever made a political post in this blog, but tonight is an exception.

We’ve never had an election like this. In my lifetime, I’ve never seen one man and his family and his campaign have such an impact on the direction of this country and this planet.

My wife and I were in tears watching Obama’s acceptance speech with our two sons. Just what it means to see Barack and Michelle and his daughters going to the White House – it’s a symbol to every last one of us of what is possible not just in this country but in every country.

It’s also a huge first step towards restoring our good name in the world.

It is a turning point for the 21st century? No one can say for sure. But I’m going to wake up tomorrow with more hope in my heart for my boy’s future than I have in a long time.

It’s now longer just Yes We Can.

It’s Now We Will.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Drum.

    Looking at the names of the people that President-Elect Obama is looking to choose for his cabinet and advisors, it seems to me that he is transcending the usual process of selecting party favorites (with an occasional token tossed in) and choosing the best in the field.

    Maybe I’m just feeling the euphoria that follows pouring time, energy and money into a 2 year contest, but I have to say that for the first time in a long time I have allowed myself to indulge in optimism about the future. Barack’s message of hope has ignited my marrow and am ready to follow this magnificent human being.
