Today’s “Obama Video of the Day” is short, but sweet – it’s a call to action, donated by YouTube-r ‘Rorchik’. And I love it.
It’s another example of how technology has made it possible for anyone to express themselves, and a continued testament to the impact that Senator Obama has already had on our society, just by running for the highest office in the land.
You don’t hear about it much – how people of all races, ages, socio-economic backgrounds, have all found a common hope in Senator Barack Obama – the news media won’t make the point, and clearly the conservative talk show kooks won’t shout it out loud. It’s only through the individual expressions of amateur videographers, the jittery hands of Obama supporters holding cell phones and camcorders, and posting their content all over the web for the world to see – technology run rampant – that we see the unifying miracle that is the Obama Movement:
I’ve never been part of a movement – I never cared to be. The real miracle here is that pretty much everyone I talk to who has gotten involved in the Obama campaign has a similar tale to tell – one of exclusion, cynicism, and political detachment. It took Senator Obama to awaken a sense of hope in me and so many others, which is how Black Women for Obama was born!
Long after Senator Obama takes office, millions of Americans will have a renewed sense of citizenship that will serve us all as a nation, and unite us in away that we’ve never been united before. So yes – I’ll endure the twangy rock music in this video, because it was produced by one of my brothers – a fellow Obama supporter!
Man, this is a BEAUTIFUL time to be an American! Obama ’08!!!!
