“…to reclaim the American Dream and reaffirm that fundamental truth – that out of many, we are one; that while we breathe, we hope, and where we 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 a people:
Yes We Can.”
-Barack Obama, President Elect, November 4th, 2008
Wow. As I sit here and type this I am still in awe of what happened this week. I have heard all of the pundits say that this election was won not out to fear but out of hope, what could be more inspiring than that? In a time when things are so uncertain and up in the air, we elected a man who clearly was put on this earth to lead us to another place. Who admits that he does not have all of the answers but promises to work his hardest to find them. And we have faith that he will. Who does not have the experience that other candidates may have had but who sees the world in a different light. It is that light that gives us hope. This is a man who does not cower in the face of challenges but is instead called forth by them. When the world has always told him, “No, you can’t.”, he has responded with “Yes, I can.” And now he has passed on that creed to us. For those of us who were doubtful about what is possible, he has given us that hope. Anything is possible.
So, how does this hope affect your life? What have you been telling yourself or others told you that you cannot do? How will you inspire hope in others by saying, “Yes, I can.”?
