A rising force, history is about to be made. A giant from a small town named Hawaii is heading for the white house. The world’s greatest achievement by an individual who believes that the time for change has come and ‘YES WE CAN’ do it. This write up to me will be to compliment the efforts of one who has displayed enough to show that he is up to what he is gunning for in a country which will all know as God’s own country.
An African American for once has been given the chance to champion a campaign for the Democrats. Barrack Obama, his father was from Kenya and young Obama was born in the United States, Hawaii to be precise. He grew up not having so much and took loans to see himself through school. Afterwards he worked in different churches and later became a lawyer.
Politics in his life started in his days as a student as he grew up with a view of uniting people together. As a senator he helped to fight for Illinois veterans to get the disability pay they were promised.
Recently he had these to say about September 11, ‘Today, we honor the memory of the lives that were lost on September 11, 2001, and grieve with the families and friends who lost someone they loved in New York City, at the Pentagon, and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. We will never forget those who died. We will always remember the extraordinary efforts of our firefighters, police and emergency responders, and those who sacrificed their own lives on Flight 93 to protect their fellow Americans. And we give thanks for the Americans defending us every day in our communities at home, and in our military abroad.On 9/11, Americans across our great country came together to stand with the families of the victims, to donate blood, to give to charity, and to say a prayer for our country. Let us renew that spirit of service and that sense of common purpose. Let us remember that the terrorists responsible for 9/11 are still at large, and must be brought to justice. Let us resolve to defeat terrorist networks, defend the American homeland, stand up for the enduring American values that we cherish, and seek a new birth of freedom at home and around the world’.
This statement made a difference in as John McCain has made a truce on hitting on each other via media campaigns and others. John McCain has appreciated senator Obama over and over on different times during his fight for his party ticket which to me shows all we need to know that he himself has competence in Barrack Obama.
Would he bring change to Washington? Obama is good at public speaking, organizing the poor and is a good husband and father. He wears his clothes well and carries himself well in foreign countries. Flush with acclaim and attention after his eloquent speech at Democratic National Convention he decided to strike while the iron was hot and run for president of the United States. He has attained remarkable success running for president in that he outdistanced far more qualified Democratic runners than he. According to Janis Dorris, she tried to make the readers of phoenix take a bias look at the issue on ground by insisting thjat the huge task of bring change in Washington should be entrusted to those with proven records of accomplishing change : like Sen. John McCain and Alaska Gov. Sarah Paslin. But she forgets that the same people that want to bring change will only try and change things they put in place at the first place. Meaning they knew these actions were wrong and put it into play all the same. How do you trust someone like that? Compared to a man who has kept all his activities open, who initiated the change every one is now talking about, who also explained why Americans need this change, how then can people say he is not ready for the white house and that he is not experienced? He has done his work by studying and proposing solutions to the problems which the government has, and should be given a chance to execute his plans.
So far he has been a man of his word living by example, in December 2006 he toke an HIV test as a way of showing support to church leaders who organized a summit on AIDS and the church. He also applied to other public office holders to do the same. He has been chosen to run under the Democratic Party as presidential candidate, insulting him that he is not ready is the same thing to me insulting the Democratic Party and their voters.
Change should be looked at from action and not by words.
