Obama Countdown ::19 Hours and 43 Minutes..... Martin Luther King Day....

{{{ This is just a 4 AM-Can Not Sleep Post...my MLK post will be up later today....and there is plenty down below...this is just some Hopemongering Music...}}}
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
So I had to go to work yesterday afternoon, and this was the last song I heard and watched from the Lincoln Memorial Event was " Shower the People" sung by James Taylor and John Legend and others.....This Song has been my song since I was 15, it is the one song that says all that I believe in ....and I have sung and lived it through thick and thin...and some Very Bad Times....It is my Anchor ...That showering people with Love Makes Us Stronger...always... I have lullabyed my son to it, sung it to sick PEDS and NICU babes,hummed it to dying AIDS patients and friends, and danced at weddings to it and driven across this Country seeing Our Country in the background....I Know it is what keeps Us Together....( and HBO can kiss my ass I am posting THIS song...watch the people swaying together by the thousands....so moving....)

Video Below is Highlights of Obama Speaking (2004) at the Convention.(My story.... I have blogged before how I was living in a rooming house on the California Coast , in one room that summer with my teenage son, having lost Everything as a Witness and Whistleblower on a Huge Federal Criminal Environmental Case that Bush's People shut down....Covered Up....Hope was beyond Fragile...and 6-6 made me Stop and Listen to This Man Talking about E.Pluribus Unum....We The People, We are ONE People....and 6-6 said "He will be President One Day"....and I thought hmm, yeah...One Day...NOW we KNOW that ONE DAY IS HERE....and I am beyond grateful that this One Man Planted a Seed of Hope with Us and Millions of Others....)

New Song, called "I have seen tomorrow" by Craig Parsons, song by Josie Aiello,Amazing Lyrics in the Comments,

4 AM thoughts..."Right Here, Right Now"......(again I will put the lyrics in the Comments).Because this song still keeps beating along how CLOSE we are .....small wonder I can not sleep ?.....

( Martin Luther King Post will be up later today....before I go to work....scroll down there is plenty from the WhistleStop Tour and video and photos from the Weekend....)

"I'VE SEEN TOMORROW"
MUSIC AND LYRICS BY CRAIG PARSONS

You and I,
We've been through it all,
We've come so far together,
Reaching for our dream,

And yes,
I know the road stretches on,
And we must meet the challenge,
We must climb the mountain,
We must find the answers,
For living our own way.

Yes, I've Seen Tomorrow,
You and I together,
We are one for the other,
We will never stray,

Yes, we are stronger,
When we stand United,
We are one for the other,
We will never stray.

The truth that lies within us,
The faith that leads us onward,
The goal that lies before us,
Is like a bright new day,

Yes, I've Seen Tomorrow,
You and I together,
We are one for the other,
We will never stray,

Oh, Yes we are stronger,
When we stand United,
Oh, Yes, the dream were holding
Is growing day by day,

Oh, Yes, there is a reason,
That we walk together,
We are one for the other,
We will never stray,

Oh, Yes we are stronger,
When we stand United,
Oh, Yes, the dream were holding
Is growing,

Yes, its growing,
Growing day by day,
Yes, we are one,
Yes, we are one,
Growing day by day.

"Right Here, Right Now" by Jesus Jones:
A woman on the radio talked about revolution
When its already passed her by
Bob dylan didnt have this to sing about you
You know it feels good to be alive

I was alive and I waited, waited
I was alive and I waited for this
Right here, right now
There is no other place I want to be
Right here, right now
Watching the world wake up from history

I saw the decade in, when it seemed
The world could change at the blink of an eye
And if anything
Then theres your sign... of the times

I was alive and I waited, waited
I was alive and I waited for this
Right here, right now

I was alive and I waited, waited
I was alive and I waited for this
Right here, right now
There is no other place I want to be
Right here, right now
Watching the world wake up from history

Right here, right now
There is no other place I want to be
Right here, right now
Watching the world wake up from history

Right here, right now
There is no other place I want to be
Right here, right now
Watching the world wake up...

Shower the People ( James Taylor)

You can play the game and you can act out the part
Though you know it wasn't written for you
But tell me, how can you stand there with your broken heart
Ashamed of playing the fool
One thing can lead to another; it doesn't take any sacrifice
Oh, father and mother,and sister and brother
if it feels nice, don't think twice (yes)

Shower the people you love with love
Show them the way that you feel
Things are gonna work out fine if you only will(do as i say, yeah)
Shower the people you love with love
Show them the way that you feel
Things are gonna be much better if you only will

You can run but you cannot hide
This is widely known
And what you plan to do with your foolish pride
When you're all by yourself alone
Once you tell somebody the way that you feel
You can feel it beginning to ease
I think it's true what they say about the squeaky wheel
Always getting the grease.

Better to shower the people you love with love
(Yes and) show them the way that you feel
(I know) Things are gonna be just fine if you only will
(what i'd like to do to you)
Shower the people you love with love
Show them the way you feel
Things are gonna be much better if you only will

Shower the people you love with love
Show them the way that you feel

They say in every life
They say the rain must fall
Just like the pouring rain
Make it rain
Make it rain
Love, love, love is sunshine oh
Oh yes, Make it rain
Love, love, love is sunshine yeah
Oh, right, Everybody, everybody, everybody, everybody

Enigma,
Have you heard that Krispy Kreme is giving away "a free doughnut of choice" to each customer to celebrate Inauguration Day? The bad part is that the American Life League is raising a stink because the word choice means the doughnuts promote abortion.

enigma4ever said...

Hairball..
hmmmm, Donuts...Yeah...that is a Way to Celebrate...well- it is an "O"...so that makes such sense

....oh screw A.L.L....what do THEY know about Donuts???- they are same NimWits that wanted to feed Terri Shiavo- paraded around with Giant SPOON Signs " Feed Terri Now"...do you remember that ? Summer of 2004...it was like some kind of bad SNL skit- that was the first time I heard of them....LOL....

hmmmm, I feel like Homer Simpson...I NEED donuts....right here...right now...

;-)

{{ nice to know Someone Else was Sleepless....}}}

Hairball said...

The nearest Krispy Kreme is over a 100 miles from me so no free doughnut for me. :(
