I loved this line from Obama’s speech in Chicago: “We are the change that we seek.” I didn’t quote it in my previous post for I wanted to make sure I got the quote right. Well, I got it now from Raw Data, part of the Fox News network, can you believe it?! It has a complete transcript of the speech. Here’s the part I liked best:
We are the change that we seek.We are the hope of those boys who have so little, who’ve been told that they cannot have what they dreamed, that they cannot be what they imagine.
Yes, they can. We are the hope of the father who goes to work before dawn and lies awake with doubt that tells him he cannot give his children the same opportunities that someone gave him.
Yes, he can.
We are the hope of the woman who hears that her city will not be rebuilt, that she cannot somehow claim the life that was swept away in a terrible storm.
Yes, she can.
We are the hope of the future, the answer to the cynics who tell us our house must stand divided, that we cannot come together, that we cannot remake this world as it should be.
