o I hope that our nation will understand death not like an eleven year old playing a video game but like someone who is facing their own mortality.
o I hope that my community, the LGBTQ, is given full citizenship.
o I hope our community if allowed full membership in all the faith communities.
o I hope he can find enough white males that are not threatened by all of the diversity that is and always has been America.
The blood of all colors runs red when it is spilt for or in our nation and you can’t tell which is which as it runs together in a theatre or a battlefield or a place of worship.
o I hope we all can agree that regardless of whether we believe that life begins at conception living begins at birth.
o I hope that I die with a job.
It made me feel whole.
It makes anyone feel whole.
o I hope that all of us looking for work find it.
o I hope that those of us who need to be retrained will find a way to be retrained.
We need to realize that educating ourselves can never stop.
o I hope people understand that the arts are as important to our nation as creating wealth.
It is as important as Wall Street, State Street and Main Street. It’s where we it's where we learn to think critically and find our true expression
o I hope I die an American.
I do not understand how I could be as fortunate as is our President to be born an American.
o I hope that people will look at the President again and realize that the only nationality that he could be is American.
His story is America.
o I hope that people will see that Mitt Romney’s story is not uniquely American.
Those stories are a dime a million. Rich people begetting rich people is a not a new story and it certainly isn’t uniquely American. It’s as old civilization itself. Rich people have always had a head start in the world since it began.
But a lower middle class kid coming all the way from that to be President why that’s just a plain old miracle. A miracle only found in America.
o I hope we embrace the miracle that is Barack Hussein Obama because that’s what he is and he is as American as Jazz.
A fusion of so many feelings and colors and rhythms and quiet dignity that can suddenly flash and throw you against the wall when afterward all you can ask is WTF?
o I hope for a lot I know but mostly…
o I hope to hear President Obama take the oath of office of President again in January 2013.
I will no longer have to hope.
o I will know then that the country will have finally changed for good.
There will be no turning back.
o It will be different but oh in the end it’s going to be all good.
