Yes We Can
Because voting is the SMALLER part of our privilege and responsibility. Our personal day-to-day toil to bring light into dark places is more important, regardless of who sits in places of power. That's what I see in this video.
Let's redefine "places of power" to mean every single one of us.
What are you going to do with YOUR power? By all means, VOTE with it. But don't stop there. The responsibility for our country and neighborhoods continues with each of us individually. On the stump, Mr. Obama often quotes poet June Jordan, "We are the ones we've been waiting for."
This video got me thinking about that.
