Bus Essay #2: Yes we can.

I kind of feel like Obama has stolen the word "change" from I should get some things out of the way. I am not a republican or a democrat. I voted for neither party is this last election & will probably continue that streak for a long time to come. I do think we needed some sort of change in the offices of our elected officials, but I don't think it was just a party change. I think we need an overhaul of structure - end political speech -

I recently saw a t-shirt that said "I will be change" - BUT it had this giant silhouette of Barack Obama in the background. I don't think political change was on Gandhi's heart when he said "Be the change you want to see in the world." I don't think he meant "Be the change you want to see in the office of the president." Don't get me wrong, I think President Obama is a genius. He had a viral campaign like none other. His campaign will go down in history as one of the best. I just think change is a heart issue and not a voting issue. To me change has a lot more to do with our interactions with people and recognizing things we could do in order to better our lives and theirs.

Here's a few things that I'm going to try to do this week in order to "Be the Change"

-Help my co-workers with work without complaining in my mind.

-Help my wife clean the kitchen.

- Pray More.

-Enjoy the things that God has blessed me with and not just want more things!

-Give some money to a homeless person and not think "they are just going to drink this away".

-Praise God for life.

-Not watch as much TV.

-Say "Thank you" more.

Yes we can.

I vote Dave!

I have a new mantra derived from a quote by Jesse James (motorcycle guy) of all people. It goes something like "you can't change the world if you can't change the stuff on your doorstep first."

But Dave, that means I actually have to DO something.
