There are point of history when a something set on fire the public heart, to think it can soar.
By soar I mean to think the better angels can win. 1776 in a backward part of the world on july 4th changed the world. Or in the 50’s a court decided that equal was to mean equal.
Maybe that not giving up one’s seat was a call to action. There are moments when the world can spin the other way. There are times when the world and you say yes we can.
For the future of my grandchildren and everyone else’s grandchildren it is time to once again to regain the American dream of a better us.
This why I support Obama, not for him but for us.
