Love and Shake
The new axiom for 09'.
Simply meaning love your neighbors and shake the haters off.
Yesterday was such a remarkable and heartfelt day. The emphasis of good will and service to your community was the focal point of every Inauguration event. It was not just a day of swearing in but a day of action for every American to step up to the plate and be accountable.
We as Americans are being called to be accountable for the progress and change in our relationships and communities. We are on the heel's of true patriotism being restored. We are getting back to the romantic America, where you love your neighbor and have pride in all that surrounds you and for once in a very long time I am excited and hopeful.
My axiom,"Love and Shake", derived from those very thoughts of the new administration. With all of the fervor around yesterdays activities there was still just enough hate, which ofcourse we'd all expect.
I witnessed people voice some of the most ignorant comments yesterday, and and I was disheartened for a moment. I later shook it off after hearing someone on television refer to President Barack Obama as not only the President of the United States of America but the Leader of the Free World!.
