As I sat last night drinking coffee, I imagined if we were sitting drinking coffee what we would talk about....and what are we thinking about....I have thought alot about the last few weeks....watching all of us come together...be Connected...and how that is History....How just a week ago, Our New President rode a train and looked out the windows at the people...US....and he witnessed We The People, he looked out those windows and saw people shivering in thin coats, and houses that need more than paint.....he saw people that need work, medicine and better food and better jobs.We saw a plane crash, steered with care into the water and then the people help each other to safety with calm hands even on Cold Icey Waters of the Hudson. The Pilot was a Hero, but so were the People that helped with the rescue...
We are all on a New Journey Together...and it is up to each of us to find ways to help each other on this New Journey....How to be calm and how to adapt and work together....and take care of each other....connecting and reaching out. We will not get through the Rough Times alone...it is time to explore the depthes of Out Compassion and Empathy.We need to be able to connect and keep talking.... and Obama will need Our help, Our Creativity, and Our Resourcefulness....He got elected because we all found ways to work together....we are on this Road Together, never underesitmate the Strength of that.
We all have been watching Obama as Our New President act swiftly on multiple issues,and has been working to remedy some of Bush's more egregious Policies....it has been heartwarming and thrilling to see such action, he is a Man of the Law, he taught Constitutional Law....He is attempting to Bring Back and Honor Our Constitution and Rule of Law....I do think we need to be patient, but also nurture our own faith, he is starting to keep Promises within 3 Days....because we have no idea of the Extent of the Level of the Mess that he has been handed on so many fronts, we only have a small glimpse into the horror of it. In the Post below...I have some articles worth reading...and some blogs worth reading....Scroll down there is plenty from this month.
About being able to Breath Again..Song is " Breathing Air Again" Robbie Seay Band
( another song about hope is linked to the title, the song gets a bit religous at the end...but in a nice way...the rest
of the video montage is beautiful.....I just like the messege that we can all breathe again...on this "drive" together...)
