Sunday 4:20

Hello America -

Live from Washington - Barack Obama -

What is it that we love about America?
the pre inauguration
celebration of American renewal

Our nation is at war
Our Economy is in crisis
millions are losing jobs
how do families pay bills
uncertainty about the future

can we pass on what's best?

It will take many years
set backs
false starts
days that test our resolve as a nation
despite the enormity of the taks that lies ahead

I stand hopeful
we will prevail
the dream of our founders will live on in our time?

What is the dream of our founders.

Unlikely stories and unyeilding faith

All for the sake of an idea

Men and women like my grandparents

Free the world from tyrannys grasp

Quote the King -
Content of their character

what is the greatest hope of all


americans of every race, region and station

you believe in what this country can be
you can help us get there


recognize ourselves
everyone together

list the everybody - don't leave out anyone

proved that people who love this country can change
i will take your voices with me

hold common hopes
we only ask what was promised

that we will make of our lives what we will

this binds us all together

Is he hammered?

millions of voices calling for change

the true character of our nation is defined by the right we do when the moment is hard

help define that character
to carry the legacy of our four fathers
into the future

and cut...
to the announcers - 10's of thousands applaud
and scream

and it will be rebroadcast

and the crowd shouts


And then the BOSS comes on -
and sings

this land was made for you and me.

this land is your land
this land is my land

All I can think...


Are people ready?
Or are do they think their work is done?
