I seriously can’t remember ever being this inspired by a political movement. Granted I’m only 26, but the fact is that an inspiring political movement has not happened in my lifetime. But it is happening now with Barack’s run for President. And it’s not just the actual politician who inspires — it’s everyone around him. Joe Biden just gave a fantastic speech that I watched on NBC after work tonight. Michelle Obama gave an awesome speech the other night in Denver that I wanted to share (for those who haven’t already seen it).
Here are a few of my favorite lines from the speech:
America should be a place where you can make it if you try.
The world as it is just won’t do.
Each of us has something to contribute to the life of this nation.
We all know there are some people, and you know who you are, who others naturally gravitate towards and want to associate with. The cause for that desire to follow and associate with includes a number of traits. It’s intelligence. It’s passion. It’s kindness. It’s values. It’s straightforwardness. It’s honesty. It’s competence. It’s charisma. It’s the desire to change the world for the better. And it’s all of those things put together.
To me, it is obvious Barack Obama is one of those special people.
