Yes We Can

In the world of post 9/11 we have lived in the shadow of fear and the never ending threat of possible future terrorist attacks. As a parent of five daughters I am fearful of the future they will have to live in if this mindset continues. Our world has changed but the possibilities that they should have as American’s should never be less than what I have had.

America has never been about what we should be afraid of as much as it is has always been about what we can all do together. We as a people will not prosper if we are forever looking ahead of us with a sense of dread and danger with every step. Our world has never been perfect and yet the future is only bright if we look at the future as a new adventure with unknown surprises that together we can all overcome. We can not overcome our fears of the probabilities if the messengers of our government are burning the olive branches offered as kindling to heat the cold halls of our government. Our nation was not built on fear but on determination to secure a brighter and better future for the next generation to come.

We need change and we need inspiration from our leaders. Separation of the people to achieve political objectives is over and the time for new ideas, new dreams, and hope is upon us. Together we can make a difference. “Yes we can” is an American right of passage and yes we can make America a better place together.

This little video from Black Eyed Peas is simply inspirational and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Wish I could see the video. The Bushies have used fear to manipulate the vulnerable and ignorant in this country. I lived through the Cold War, the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Free Fall ride at Six Flags. And, so far, the space junk hasn’t fallen on my head. I am not afraid. MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann has tracked the pattern of “terror alerts” connected to bad events for the Bushies. Very interesting. I’ll send you the link. Your girls will be fine, because their papa is fighting for them.

Click on the link and listen to the music BJ. It's a melting pot of Obama's speaches and musicians that I really think you would enjoy.
