Barack Obama - "A Change we Believe in"

Change,
the ultimate hope!


fears gone

tempers calmed


visions cleared
obstacles removed

threat disarmed
innocence harbored

poverty checked
hunger lessened

faith instilled
suspicions cleared

gunfire silenced
peace established

Alas,
change is but a phase.

What will it take
in order to sustain
a '
change we believe in'?

Vote Obama
is the claim!

it feels good to know that
democracy is still alive
in this big beautiful country
and that we today have
a new elected president

Amen to that.
What a lovely way to say that we have a new president. I think a lot of people are breathing a sigh of relief today.

Without a doubt, the one thing that won't sustain change we can believe in is complacency. We need to remain active, do what we can to help Obama, as well as criticize him when we disagree. And, of course, we can't leave everything up to the government, either. We need to be active in our own communities, homes, and families.

Great post.

hmmm... very impressive... and he won... because many believed in change...
"Yoga" says it definitely right... not just the governments but each individual person has got an influential say... let's act...

hope all these come true...

I'm glad he won - and I hope that the change holds true to its promise.

Sometimes change can end up short-changing people.
