Great article by Seth Graham-Smith today.

Brings me back to center a bit:

I believe in Barack. Maybe you don’t.

But I don’t hate you for it.

Yes, Hillary would be better for this country than John McCain.  That, I am pretty sure of.  

But I think Obama would be better for this country than anyone else.  I believe in him. 

 

Maybe it’s because his speeches are filled with visions of grandeur for this country.  Maybe its because he has that great compasion in his voice that fills you with the weird idea that this country isn’t completely filled with money-grubbing, self supporting, easily perswayed by  money elitists.

Maybe because he makes me listen.  He makes me want to know what is happening in the country.  He makes me want to vote, and want to stand up for myself and my beliefs.  It makes me feel more united with people in states I have  never visited.  It makes me feel like part of a movement.  Like an active citizen.  Like an American, in the truest definition of the word.

I can now say I agree with Michelle Obama.

For the first time in my life, I am proud to be an American.
