the audacity of hope

‘...While we breathe, we hope.
And where are met with cynicism and doubt and those who tell us that we can’t,
We will respond with that timeless creed that sums up the spirit of the people,
Yes we can.’

Barack Obama...
Is the president elect...
Will be the 44th US President...

There has never been anything false about hope.

I'm so happy for Obama, he has proven that barriers can be broken and dreams can become true. What people thought was impossible a year ago, has now happened before our very eyes. And we also have a black First Lady!

Anyway, as the incoming president of the US, he has a lot on his plate to deal with. Now I just hope the people that elected him as president will be patient with him and know that the promises he made will not happen overnight.

But I await the day when Nigeria will have a leader like Obama that we can believe in, who will serve rather than rule.

Yeah, he deserves to win!

Smaragd 5 November 2008 at 14:15

Yes, there has never been anything false about hope. Hope is what keeps us living from one day to another...without hope, death prevails. But we are alive because we hope for a better tomorrow.

Yes, we can!

Obama winning is just proof that 'cos 'thas not been done before does not mean one cannot do it. 'tis a new dawn of HOPE, let's all consciously and continually keep HOPE alive.

Never have those words been more real. Timeless creed I tell you. It will take a while for the reality of all of this to sink in for me...
