The Avalanche

Filed under: Uncategorized — ononehand @ 9:00 pm

Never in my 23 years in this country have I seen the horizon glowing like it is today.

Never in my 23 years of waiting, waiting have I seen the oceans tremble with this haunted hidden thunder of redemption.

And if we lose I know we are winning, because the gates have been thrust open and this avalanche if put on hold is sure to come through with increased determination. It has been promised. It has been sung. We have been to the mountain top and seen the future, it is sweet, sweet.

We will crack this nation open. We will make the first to be last and the last ones first. We will puff our chests and take pride in the soil of our birth for the first time since we were too young and simple to criticize ourselves.

We will run – don’t walk – to Pennsylvania
we

will run – don’t walk – to North Carolina
we

will run – don’t walk – to Indiana
we

will run – don’t walk – to Montanna, Oregon, Kentucky, Puerto Rico, we
will run don’t walk to Washington to the White House we will shake this nation and then raise our goblets to each other in the colors of red, white, and blue.

It is a promise, ringing, first a whisper, then like laughter, then a roar:

Yes we can!
Yes we can!
Si se puede!
Yes we can!

2008!

Barack.
Hussein.
Obama.

  3. We’re so close and we can’t let them steal it from us.

    Energy is contagious, let’s focus on keeping up the direct action in the weeks to come.
