Yes We Can. Yes We Did!

As someone once said, “Change does not come from Washington — change comes to Washington.”

Barack Obama -- Yes We Can

I will offer a more “sociological” analysis of Obama’s historic victory in an upcoming post but for now, I’d like to share the first thoughts that came to me when all the major news outlets officially declared Barack Obama to be the next President of the United States:

We shall overcome, We shall overcome
We shall overcome, some day.

Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe
We shall overcome, some day.

We will walk hand in hand, We will walk hand in hand
We’ll walk hand in hand, some day.

We shall live in peace, We shall live in peace
We shall live in peace, some day.

We shall all be free, We shall all be free
We shall all be free, some day.

Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe
We shall overcome, some day.
