Barack Obama and Hope
There is nothing false about hope. Yes, I can (and will) be in eternal opposition to our lamentable sadly bipartisan foreign policies in the Middle East (particularly in Israel/Palestine), and fear that even a Barack Obama presidency won't change enough.
But there is an elixir to hope, there is a beauty to believing that we are not destined to be who we have been (our shadow selves) or act the way it seems we are destined to act (our shadow selves). May there be some hope that greases some gears of change, and hope that mucks up the gears that have ground down the hopes of peoples at home and throughout the world.
Thanks to Chris Kempf for sending this along.
