These songs are posted with limited commentary because a) you’re all ready and b) the songs say everything I could hope to. You’re ready for change. You can feel it in the air. There is a restlessness all around you, and you’re right there in it. I could barely sleep last night, I got a total of maybe four hours of sleep.
Today we will make history.
You know, as do I, that after today the game is changed forever. No matter who wins, we have all won. Change is imminent here in America as we work to regain our foothold in the world, and I have strongly believed for a long time that the voice of that change will be Barack Obama.
As election day comes in America, I urge you that you must, absolutely MUST vote, regardless of whom you are voting for. I, for one, voted for Barack Obama and Joe Biden. I voted Yes on Referendum Five here in Memphis, the Instant Runoff Voting (IRV) initiative. I hope you will do the same.
Today, moreso than at any election held in my lifetime, we must come together as one nation. I hope you already know what’s at stake. If you’re reading this and you haven’t voted, get up and go. Please. Your vote does matter and it is important.
With that, I say God bless Barack Obama and Joe Biden, and God bless the United States of America.
