He Runs So Others Can Fly
Oh boy, America, the day is almost here. I know that everyone is trying to remind themselves that Obama isn't some kind of mystical figure who will wave a magic wand and transform the world into a utopia, but man, is it ever nice to see so many people feeling so hopeful. When I see the people gathering around in Washington, it occurs to me that it's not even about this man -- it's about the way that he's making people feel. It's you, America, who has a chance to change things right now. Show us what you've got. I know you have it in you.
The above photo is of a little piece of art that Aaron's sister gave him for Christmas. I don't know who made it, but she bought it from a craft fair, and it's a really brilliant idea: the word "hope" printed on a dictionary page. The fist word on the page is "intellect." Seems appropriate for this week, no?
