Anything is Possible!!

November 5, 2008

We can no longer be detered! After last night, after electing the first black president of the United States of America just more than 40 years after the passage of the Civil Rights Act, absolutely anything is possible!

As we walked through a celebration rally last night in downtown DC, the group chanted lots of slogans, ranging from “Yes we can” to “Si se puede” to “Bring them home!” As I held up our War Is Not the Answer sign, I was really appreciative that the Obama supporters remembered that ending the war in Iraq is still a major concern.

And there are lots of other major concerns that we must not forget. I was going to use this post as an opportunity to speak out about Barack’s plan to increase the size of the military and send more troops to Afganistan, but instead I am going to look toward the future with unbridaled hope and optimism. And again I say, if we can elect a black president, we can do anything!

Last night in his speech, the President Elect said, “If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time, who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer.”

It is a historic time, and we have to take advantage of this historic opportunity. The energy, the optimism, the power of this moment could help bring our troops home, to repair our relations with the world, to work toward ending global poverty, to bring about a better world!
