yes we can

Kita bersyukur, berkat internet kita bisa melihat munculnya pemimpin baru yang karismatik. Sayangnya ini merupakan pemimpin di negeri lain. Kapan di negeri ini muncul pemimpin muda sekelas ini ? Ramah, percaya diri, berpengetahuan luas, dan bisa berkomunikasi dengan bahasa yang sederhana.

Semoga Obama tidak melakukan blunder seperti pemimpin-pemimpin lainnya. Dan semoga di antara generasi muda Indonesia yang suka mengeluh, akan muncul pemimpin karismatik yang selalu optimis, seperti Obama.

Kita jangan hanya bangga dengan telah “meng-ekspor Obama” ke USA. Tapi kita juga perlu Obama yang lain untuk kebutuhan dalam negeri sendiri… 🙂

… that is America, there has never been anything false about hope. For when we have faced down impossible odds; when we’ve been told that we’re not ready, or that we shouldn’t try, or that we can’t, generations of Americans have responded with a simple creed that sums up the spirit of a people.

Yes we can.

It was a creed written into the founding documents that declared the destiny of a nation.

Yes we can.

It was whispered by slaves and abolitionists as they blazed a trail toward freedom through the darkest of nights.

Yes we can.

It was sung by immigrants as they struck out from distant shores and pioneers who pushed westward against an unforgiving wilderness.

Yes we can.

It was the call of workers who organized; women who reached for the ballot; a President who chose the moon as our new frontier; and a King who took us to the mountaintop and pointed the way to the Promised Land.

Yes we can to justice and equality. Yes we can to opportunity and prosperity. Yes we can heal this nation. Yes we can repair this world. Yes we can.

And so tomorrow, as we take this campaign South and West; as we learn that the struggles of the textile worker in Spartanburg are not so different than the plight of the dishwasher in Las Vegas; that the hopes of the little girl who goes to a crumbling school in Dillon are the same as the dreams of the boy who learns on the streets of LA; we will remember that there is something happening in America; that we are not as divided as our politics suggests; that we are one people; we are one nation; and together, we will begin the next great chapter in America’s story with three words that will ring from coast to coast; from sea to shining sea – Yes. We. Can.

Barack just concluded his speech underneath the Gatway Arch in St. Louis, in front of a record crowd of over 100,000 people. “All I can say is, wow,” Barack said as he took the stage.
