I am an American whose pessimism and disenfranchisement has ended. Replacing a muddied esoteric political view is a clear vision. Today my heart and
mind have been captivated; my reverence and anticipation ratcheted to levels I thought unattainable. Today, I witness the rise of a righteous and true
That righteous and true leader of course is Barak Obama.
My road to understanding.
You might find it hard to believe, but until recently I was undecided. Undecided on whether or not I would vote. I figured Barak Obama didn’t need
me (and I sure as shoot wasn’t going to vote for McCain/Palin). Sure, Barak Obama’s run was historic and great, but in my cloudy pessimism I saw
the same old divisive politicking that weakened this nation instead of strengthening it. So, as an independent free-agent who feverishly disliked the
endless partisan rhetoric, and who harbored a general suspicion of politicians, I sat in the stands watching what I thought was just another circus.
Then everything changed as revelation struck me like bottled lighting.
I had been on the road, spending many hours alone with my thoughts (and hours of satellite radio) when I heard not Barak's voice but Michelle Obama
in a montage of speeches saying, "Barak is going to ask a lot of you....He is going to challenge you!"
Something clicked and I drank that bottled lighting. Suddenly, I understood that this election transcends politics, it transcends
race/taxes/Iraq—most importantly it transcends our personal biases, fears, and cognitive limitations. This election is about a true leader arising
to help reveal the destiny of this nation and of humanity. A massive change is occurring as I write this, arriving from over the horizon. Barak Obama
is the one who will lead us into this change, this New Way. A New Way brimming with opportunity, dreams, and challenges that will transform humanity.
Without righteous and true leadership, we will have great trouble navigating the New Way. It would be like playing the Super Bowl without a head
coach, or devastatingly worse if McCain/Palin were to be elected, a dubiously negligent coach who has no intention on leading the team to victory.
As a leader, I understand the importance of following. And I know in my heart and mind that Barak Obama is a righteous and true leader. He is someone
I will follow.
I am prepared to be challenged. I am ready to be asked ‘a lot of.’ This perennial free-agent has hitched his wagon to something bigger. Today, I
am as grateful as I’ve ever been to be an American.
~May Peace, Prosperity, and Love be with you~
...This is just the beginning...
