Remember how you felt?

[link:|




I still get goosebumps to this day when I hear that song or see that video.

My daughter was there in person, I was watching it on TV and I felt something I have never felt before. I didn't really start following politics till 2000, so I missed out on the feeling that I might have got with Bill Clinton.

We nominated and got elected a president that appealed to the heart of people. With hope. With change.

Has he been perfect? Of course not. Has he had to compromise on things we wish he wouldn't compromise on? Of course.
But he's been pretty freaking great for us and for our country.

Healthcare, economy, wars, taxes, civil rights, middle class....he's pretty much been with us. Much more so than the alternative would have been.

I feel safer, I sleep better, I stress less.

I'm thankful for President Obama.

Just wanted to share, heard that song on shuffle while doing yard work.

1. President Obama is one of the greats.

 

I don't agree with him on everything and I wish he was more progressive and less corporatist, but overall he is a fantastic, wonderful, impressive leader.

3. Thank you so much for posting this, I'd never seen it and it is beautiful! And I agree:

I feel safer, I sleep better, I stress less.

I'm thankful for President Obama.


It's on a deep level, that makes some of the daily insanity and hatred much less hurtful.
