12 days 2 go..... Carpe Diem!
For me... the wait is like labor... the contractions get harder and harder at the end
but it 's fine because it is the Birth of a New Nation....
the beginning of a new America..
the awakening from a long fitful sleep
to the actualization of a multicultural, multiglobal Dream.
Barack Obama has not only practiced Carpe Diem
but he has seized the moment in history...
a profound moment of change
that resonates around the nation.....
and around the world
as loudly as the moment that was seized by Rosa Parks....
This is not a refusal to go to the the back of the bus,
but a profound moment to drive the bus
into a new future for America and the world.
