Sen. Barack Obama’s Full Speech to the DNC

This was the first time in my life that I felt “connected” to the government...I became proud to be an American when I heard this speech given by Barack Obama at the 2008 Democratic National Convention. I now believe in the Pledge Of Allegiance”...for liberty and justice for all”. Y-E-S, we can win and we will change this world policies for the better for every man, woman and child. When you are reluctant to change...Think of the beauty of autumn. Get it? Change is Beautiful...Change is Powerful...Change is of Greatness!!!...Let’s not be afraid of change. Let’s welcome it with an open heart, open mind and open arms.

I hope you will enjoy and appreciate this speech as I have.

Hi Stephen, I know it’s been a very long time since I have submitted an article-I just couldn’t resist sharing this piece of history.

BELOVED

Favorite Quote

I’ve heard some great speeches this week at the Democratic Convention but this is a great line by Bill Clinton.
“...people have always been more impressed by the power of our example than by the example of our power.”

Reflecting

I’ve been dealing with a lot recently and my outlet for stress is poetry. I sometimes keep things bottled inside but on some occasions it helps me to put pen to paper to put things in perspective.

Reflecting

Here I sit reflecting
Reflecting in my cube of solitude
Looking at my world and life around me
Things that affect me

Reflecting on my feelings, my hopes and my dreams
Reflecting on my past and my present
Trying to find out what it all means

Contemplating life without you
Contemplating life with you
Are they both interchangeable
Can I have my cake and eat it too?

Reflection is bringing about my perspective
Is it too late to start anew?
Do I look upon the boldly rising sun or squint into it not quite sure if I’m worthy
Worthy to work my way back to the being I once was
The being who was able to move mountains, cross valleys, and overcome any adversity

Or do I just continue to sit here in my cube of solitude and continue to just be.

I think my reflecting has come to an end and I know what the end shall be.
To reflect no more and to stand strong and firm and end this cube of solitude and embrace the path I’ve chosen to deflect all past wrongs before and smile boldly
Walk right through the door because my reflection is all done.

France accused in Rwanda genocide

From http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/7542418.stm

Some 800,000 people died in the 1994 genocide in Rwanda

Rwanda has accused France of playing an active role in the genocide of 1994, in which about 800,000 people were killed.

A justice ministry report said France was aware of preparations for the genocide and helped train the ethnic Hutu militia perpetrators.

The report also accused French troops of direct involvement in the killings.

It named 33 senior French military and political figures that it said should be prosecuted. France has previously denied any such responsibility.

Among those named in the report were the late former president, Francois Mitterrand, and two former prime ministers, Dominique de Villepin and Edouard Balladur.

Someone to be proud of.

I love this girl.

I apologize if you’ve already seen this, but…

I felt that you needed to see it again.  If for no other reason, the reasons outlined in the video should be enough to bring our troops home where they belong.

I’m ashamed to say that this isn’t alarming anymore.

Is this 16 year old awesome or what?

American Story: From bad hair day to pay day
Bob Dotson introduces an ingenious teenage entrepreneur

Today’s American Story with Bob Dotson comes from Williamstown, N.J., where a teenager thinks she’s found the key to success. It’s not a question of being dealt a good hand, she says. It’s playing a bad hand well, over and over again.

I found Jasmine Lawrence watching her mom struggle to learn how to load a high speed-labeling machine. Shampoo bottles were spinning and sticking, their labels crooked. April Lawrence hung her head in frustration

“There’s a label stuck here.”

“Oh, Lord,” mutters Jasmine. 

She is living every kid’s dream. She gets to boss her mom.

“Hold the bottle up to here.” April works for her 16-year-old daughter.

“How’s that working out?” I smile. Jasmine’s mom laughs.

“A couple of times I thought she wanted to fire me!”

Bacon mania
Why are Americans so batty for bacon? It’s delicious, it’s decadent—and it’s also a fashion statement.
By Sarah Hepola

Jul. 07, 2008 | I stumbled across an Internet link several months ago that made me gasp. At a time when Amy Winehouse implodes via RSS feed and Mini Me has a sex tape, genuine surprise is as hard to come by as affordable gas. But this link was fascinating and repellent at once. Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce: the bacon bra.
The bacon bra did its little cha-cha around the interweb for a good week last April, sparking debate about everything from the offensiveness of a naked woman covered in raw meat to the bra’s functionality—which, let’s face it, exists in that vast flyover between a Maidenform underwire and, umm, whipped cream. But what struck me most about the reactions, whether from online commenters or my own friends, was how they were shot through with a childlike giddiness that sounded something like this: “Ohmygod, baaaaacon.”
