HOPE Lives "All things Are Possible"

Yes we can!

"Our pride is based on a very simple premise, summed up in a declaration made over two hundred years ago: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights. That among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

That is the true genius of America — a faith in simple dreams, an insistence on small miracles:

- That we can tuck in our children at night and know that they are fed and clothed and safe from harm.

- That we can say what we think, write what we think, without hearing a sudden knock on the door.

- That we can have an idea and start our own business without paying a bribe.

- That we can participate in the political process without fear of retribution, and that our votes will be counted at least, most of the time."

-President Elect Barack Obama

His speech made me cry because it was full of hope. This election is the best thing that has happened for a long time.
Thanks for posting part of the speech--I paid attention, but I liked reading it too.

The darkness is receding and the clouds are breaking up. I have never been more proud to be an American than I am today!
