My entire life has been spent experiencing the terrible political effects of Richard Nixon's Watergate. Cynicism reigned supreme which peaked under Bush 43's administration which thrived on lies, fear and hate. Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton charged their political base, but were unsuccessful at uniting our nation. They were polarizing figures. America desperately needed a presidential candidate to energize and unite our nation. No one could meet that challenge... until now.
Barack Obama is changing the civic attitude of our nation and I witnessed it firsthand last night. The crowd was a true slice of Chicago. I saw rich, poor, middle class, college students, grade schoolers proudly holding their parents' hands, black, white, asian, and hispanic. It was impossible to determine a demographic majority. I witnessed no discouragement or any form of content for any political figure. The atmosphere was charged with celebration and pride not for a sports team or a fireworks display, but for the future leader of this nation. It was a cherished moment of American history.
The inspiration of Obama can be seen beyond our country's borders. I've never seen so many nations share in our country's excitement from news reports of people dancing in the streets to message board posts from French women stating that they cried in joy at the news of Obama's election. Today, our world is filled with some much needed hope.
Wonderful! I wish I could have been there. It looks so exciting and emotional. I feel like today is New Year's Day!
My humble musical letter to president Obama:
