I was reading Britt Bravo's Have Fun Do Good blog last week & she featured this 2 minute campaign announcement preview. No matter what your politics, I was struck by Senator Obama's message.
It's true. We get so jaded. We think: politics are corrupt, the world is a mess, it's up to the rich and powerful to change it, and they never will.
But as Senator Obama points out, there is another possibility.
The possibility that we could reengage.
Odds are, one person might not make too much of a difference (though, thankfully, there are always the Mother Theresas and Paul Farmers out there to prove me wrong). But, if you engage a little, and your family engages a little, and your friends and neighbors engage a little...
This is how change occurs. Little by little. Day by day.
The same way that messes get cleaned up.
So whoever you're pulling for in 2008...
Let's roll up our sleeves.
Let's get involved!
