We Can, Yes....Or Can We?

I know this has been oversaturated throughout the web, but it is kinda inspiring when you think about it.

No, I am not at all saying I support Obama in the forthcoming election, IF he gets the nomination, but the video was very well put together, by of all artists, will.i.am. I dislike his regular music, but this mosaic is nice.

Saying and doing are two different things, let us not forget, but if we all can come together, we really can be unstoppable. Right now we stand on the brink of some bad things, economic depression, nuclear war, and the whole of the world just not really liking what we have been doing in Iraq and Afghanistan, and what we have become.

I am not saying America has to be the best country. No. I am saying that we just need to get a better reputation amongst the rest of the world, and right now we are the source of ridicule, well, at least that is what the news suggests.

Anyways, enjoy the words and video to "Yes We Can", and lets hope it inspires some of your guys to help out the world.

(France, though, may be iffy XD)


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 want 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.
