I'm a single mom with two great kids living near Dallas, Texas. This is my life; day to day things that are probably only important to me. This is my record of my ups, my downs and the road that I've taken along the way. For whatever reason YOU'RE here, I hope you find something you can enjoy and/or relate to. God bless.

Yes We Can...

Saw this at my friend epsilonicus' blog. Loved it. Don't have to want the man to be my president to appreciate his words. I simply love this video.

My favorite line: But in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope. Love that!

It was a creed written into the founding documents that declared the destiny of a nation.

Yes we can.

It was whispered by slaves and abolitionists as they blazed a trail toward freedom.

Yes we can.

It was sung by immigrants as they struck out from distant shores and pioneers who pushed westward against an unforgiving wilderness.

Yes we can.

It was the call of workers who organized; women who reached for the ballots; a President who chose the moon as our new frontier; and a King who took us to the mountaintop and pointed the way to the Promised Land.

Yes we can to justice and equality.

Yes we can to opportunity and prosperity.

Yes we can heal this nation.

Yes we can repair this world.

Yes we can.

We know the battle ahead will be long, but always remember that no matter what obstacles stand in our way, nothing can stand in the way of the power of millions of voices calling for change.

We have been told we cannot do this by a chorus of cynics...they will only grow louder and more dissonant ........... We've been asked to pause for a reality check. We've been warned against offering the people of this nation false hope.

But in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope.

Now the hopes of the little girl who goes to a crumbling school in Dillon are the same as the dreams of the boy who learns on the streets of LA; we will remember that there is something happening in America; that we are not as divided as our politics suggests; that we are one people; we are one nation; and together, we will begin the next great chapter in the American story with three words that will ring from coast to coast; from sea to shining sea --

Yes. We. Can.

*GASP* @ dabich!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Bite yer tongue missy!!! Don't make me get all political up in this 'peaceful blog'. Political talk sucks, doesn't it???

I have to say, this is one of the most positive, inspiring things I have seen and read in a very...very long time.

Politically speaking: I love them both. I am on the fence. The one thing that I lean more towards to re: Hillary is "more experience". But, there were plenty of good presidents that came into office without experience.

I'm totally on the fence lately. I don't think I'm even going to vote.

I even like...



Sweet Jesus! Can He run for president???

::Picking Deb up and dusting her off::

Now, easy girl =D

If we could get Sweet Jesus for President, we'd all be better off!

As for McClain, he's not all bad either.

I saw this posted on another blog for Super Tuesday what a profound message for change.

I wonder if Obama directly or indirectly paid for this remarkable production. Either way...it's doing what it was made for--giving Obama the edge!

Dabich, yeah I do like McCain actually...

Hey, I just saw Michelle Obama on the news somewhere - forget which channel, and I absolutely loved her! I wanna vote for her actually! :) Very intelligent, confident woman who is just amazing. Have you seen her?

No, I haven't, but now I'd like to. I can't believe the narrow-mindedness of people. I say I favor Obama, and the response I get it "What?? Vote for a terrorist?" I'm like..WTH?
This country is sad.
