What change they will see?

Here are some questions of Barrack Obama that we Pinoys of today must ask ourselves.

We have seen so much. But there is so much more to do. So tonight, let us ask ourselves — if our children should live to see the next century; if my daughters should be so lucky to live as long as Ann Nixon Cooper, what change will they see? What progress will we have made?

I wish all Pinoys can answer Barrack Obama’s questions truthfully.

Well, it is not too late. We still have time to make our firm resolve to change ourselves and our nation starting today.

I hope we all can. I pray it will start now.

    I believe that hoping and praying or asking ourselves poetic questions about the future generations will not change the world.

    With having a firm resolve to change–there must be action, too. At the moment, when all else seems impossible, particularly with the way the affairs of the country are being run–we can only hope and pray a LOT!

    The US has “In God We Trust” in its monies, that no one can deny. Even from the very beginning, the Americans (and amny other countries for that matter) have been praying.

    Barack Obama epitomizes the American Dream, that anyone in America regardless of race, color, gender, creed can become great and realize his dream. Barack just made the first step which in itself is already an incredible achievement. Let’s see if he can cross the finish line and deliver what he promised🙂

    Obmma is an epitome of change. he clicked because a lot, not only in America, wanted to change. it’s true that a good, poetic speech cannot change the world. but in expressing his inner, sincere hopes and wishes for his country is a step towards the goal. i think we just have to give a chance to let him try. it is not an easy task after all. what is important is someone dared the challenge.

    It’s clear that the GOp has just failed to catch up with the times and hold on to policies that are reminiscent of old politics, from McCarthyism to Cold War, failing to recognize the emerging new age mindset that’s enveloping the world, unlike Europe which had responded so well. I doubt if they can ever rebound so swiftly from this defeat, it’ll be a very hard climb back to White House.

    Obama being elected as the next president of the most powerful nation in the world only goes to show that democracy reigns in the US. Anything is possible. People are empowered to make their choices.

    It’s sad that we cannot say the same thing for our country, where election results are tampered with by power-hungry people in the government, where corruption is the name of the game. My heart grieves for the Philippines. Truly, we can only hope and pray for the best while doing the practical steps to spur positive change in our society as individuals.
