"This victory alone is not the change we seek. It is the opportunity to make that change." – President-Elect Barack Obama, November 4, 2008.

He made activists out of all of us by enlisting us in his campaign.  And now we must continue our activism and not just go back to our private lives.  It's not about him; it's about us.  And he can't do it without us.

And no, we don't think he's the Messiah. Or Superman. We know it won't be easy for him to fulfill all his promises.  But many of us sense that he does have a "rendezvous with destiny."  He is the right person at the right time, at this pivotal point in our history.  

Oh yes, yes we can.

Thoughtful, sparkling comments. . .

    Wow! You folks really did it – the future looks a little brighter this morning.
    I just wish we had someone over here with half the passion and charisma of Barack Obama – all we have is dour Gordon Brown or greasy David Cameron. Although in Scotland we do have Alex Salmond.

    Here it is November 5th – and a picture like that is still making me cry tears of joy.

    Yes we can, yes we can. Such a small thing to say, but within those simple words resides such great promise and possibility. After too many long years, the oppressive clouds of fear, anger, and despair have begun to part. Shining through is a thin, but powerfully hopeful light of what can be.
    Will we, as individuals, a country, and citizens of the world, have the courage to rise to the challenge?
    YES WE CAN!!!

    You’re absolutely right – now is the time for all of us to get busy … and that doesn’t necessarily mean making more phone calls or speaking to other people. We must each decide and choose: Barak Obama’s new presidency WILL be the catalyst to bring about a global change – healing for our planet and everyone on it!

    The sense I get about Barack Obama is that he makes other people feel that they can change things. He helps others get a sense of the power within themselves.
    I’m not sure there is one American dream however. It will be interesting to see how Obama now articulates and puts into action his vision, how he manages all the conflicting and vested interests.
    He’s an intelligent, calm and visionary leader however! I do wish Americans well.

    Christine Kane’s post this morning resonated with me:
    http://christinekane.com/blog/president-elect-your-last-name/
    “After all didn’t Gandhi tell us to BE the change we wish to see in the world? Doesn’t that mean that we have opportunity after opportunity to decide to end the anger and derisiveness, no matter who “started it,” and in spite of how uncomfortable we feel?
    If that’ so, then each of us is the President-elect. Each of us is a leader.”
    and Garrison Keillor’s line:
    “A toast to the Obamas as they enjoy a brief, golden moment before beginning the grueling business of disappointing their followers, astonishing their enemies and doing what is right for our country.”

    We’re all in this together. Blessed be!
