hope

I’ve listened to Barack Obama’s acceptance speech nearly a dozen times and I still cry every time I hear his words – just as much for what he says as how he says it. He’s intelligent and his words are rhythmic. As I look back at election night I can’t fail to see the symbolism. Obama’s rally was an open invitation to the citizens of Chicago and America while McCain’s was invite only. Obama’s was in a public open space and McCain’s was at an exclusive and expensive hotel. McCain’s supporters booed when he mentioned Obama and Obama’s supporters cheered when Obama mentioned McCain. Obama’s speech said so much, but the rallies spoke volumes.
