Make sure your voice is heard…VOTE!

It is tremendously exciting to see so many people voting rather than staying home; being a part of the process. Regardless of who you are supporting it is so cool to see so many people engaged rather than apathetic.

I thought it was neat how they turned a speech into a song…just sharing, not making a political statement (yet).

It was a creed written into the founding documents that declared the destiny of a nation.
Yes we can.
It was whispered by slaves and abolitionists as they blazed a trail toward freedom.
Yes we can.
It was sung by immigrants as they struck out from distant shores and pioneers who pushed westward against an unforgiving wilderness.
Yes we can.
It was the call of workers who organized; women who reached for the ballots; a President who chose the moon as our new frontier; and a King who took us to the mountaintop and pointed the way to the Promised Land.
Yes we can to justice and equality.
Yes we can to opportunity and prosperity.
Yes we can heal this nation.
Yes we can repair this world.
Yes we can.
We know the battle ahead will be long, but always remember that no matter what obstacles stand in our way, nothing can stand in the way of the power of millions of voices calling for change.
We have been told we cannot do this by a chorus of cynics…they will only grow louder and more dissonant ……….. We’ve been asked to pause for a reality check. We’ve been warned against offering the people of this nation false hope.
But in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope.
Now the hopes of the little girl who goes to a crumbling school in Dillon are the same as the dreams of the boy who learns on the streets of LA; we will remember that there is something happening in America; that we are not as divided as our politics suggests; that we are one people; we are one nation; and together, we will begin the next great chapter in the American story with three words that will ring from coast to coast; from sea to shining sea —
Yes. We. Can

    I wanted to add… the best line of the Democratic debate was… "It took a Clinton to clean up after the first Bush, It might take another to clean up after the second!"

    Amen! This was cool. What makes me wonder, however, is why everyone does not see how important their vote is. "We the people" do have the power to make a change. We certainly need a change. Our global issues alone are enough to scare the pants off of us and the economy is a MESS. So glad GW didn’t raise taxes, he sure raised the cost of EVERYTHING else with his spending! McCain is one scary rerun of Bush! I don’t think the middle oops… waning, disappearing, vanishing middle class can take too much more of GW and his type politician. I vote. I will make sure I vote in November. (Guess everyone knows my political preference! Go Hillary! For the record, I did watch the Republican debate and liked what Ron Paul had to say in the brief ten minutes he was given to speak.)
