Yes we can.

Will.i.am: “It’s a New Day” video (embedding disabled by request).

As January 20th approaches, and we look into the possibility of a new future for our country and our world… even with the fear and anxiety we and so many of our friends, family, and community members are feeling as we watch the news, our bank accounts, the state of our neighborhoods… I hope we can at least turn our hearts, prayers, and support to our new leadership.  Whether you voted for President-elect Obama or conscientiously chose not to, I hope you’ll join me in praying for him and his team to make decisions with integrity, thoughtfulness, reason, and fairness on the behalf of this country and our global community .  With grace and with humility.  With respect and hope.  As I listened once again to his speech this morning, I felt joy in the possibility that, indeed, we can be the people and nation we claim to be.  Yes, we can.
