Paying Attention, with Don Cummings
I've been watching that 'Yes We Can' video for 3 days and I'm still crying. Obama had a rally here in Baltimore and filled a Springsteen-sized arena. I was going to go but it was 20 degrees with a howling wind. People still waited in line for hours to get in. Then last night in my painting class there was a woman who takes the bus home from work past that arena and she said the whole bus was full of people coming from the rally and they were so energized and so positive and all colors and ages. It was like this whole bus full of tired commuters suddenly woke up and were all friendly and happy and alive. I had forgotten what it's like to feel hopeful.
