"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.
