Hey GlobalGrinders! it's @ConnieChris
Yesterday, the nation prepared to watch President Obama speak in a Town Hall to address the youth. Today I'm reflecting on the many different ways I felt during his campaign run to the White House. I have to be honest in saying that I now feel disappointed and ashamed.
Oftentimes as a people we take on the notion that once a task is completed, we are justified in sitting back and relaxing. I feel that this belief is evident in our lack of enthusiasm for change in the two years since WE elected Barack Obama as President. We’ve lost it! All of us!
I can remember being excited to go to the rallies in my area! It made me proud to be able to say that I was there. But even more than that, his campaign gave me the permission to dream again, to believe that the impossible could very well be possible. It motivated me to “be the change I wanted to see in the world.” See, when President Obama spoke of CHANGE, it spoke more to my spirit than to my wallet.
