RE: current affairs
DREAM WE CAN BELIEVE IN


I never thought, not in my wildest flight of fancy, that it will become a reality during my lifetime. It was a dream so soft and fragile that the merest whisper could blow it to tiny little pieces. For it to come true on this beautiful morn! You see, its not just the dawn of a new day, its the dawn of a new era. An era where any dream can and will come true. What started as a daydream for a young African-American growing up in the crime-infested neighbourhood that is the world of black Americans has today become a reality that will forever inspire the rest of us. It is the dawn of a new era, the era of dreams coming true. An era that says all you have to do to make your dreams come true is to hold on to it and make a living breathing reality of it! (am I taking the metaphor too far?)

T.E Lawrence was not far from the lie when he warned of the danger of men dreaming with eyes wide open. He was wrong on one score, not all men who dream with eyes open dream negative.If the dream of Barack Obama to be the first Blackman in the white house was dangerous , then i urge us all to dream dangerous dreams. Yeah, dreams that can change the course of history; dream dreams that inspires billions to reach for heights greater than their imaginations can encompass, dream...the Obama dream.

Now the political analysts among us (a more bothersome lot you never see!) are going to elucidate a thousand factors that contributed to Obama’s histrionic; was it the global economic crisis, the bungled wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the erosion of the middle class in the US or the lacklustre economic and foreign policies that characterize the Bush years? Or was it God working in His mysterious ways? (that’s for the spiritual amongst us!) but honest injun, I don’t know. What i do know for sure is these, Obama’s victory is for mankind. Whatever the colour of your skin, please believe me when i say this victory is for us all. This ‘change’ that we’d believed in for some 18 odd months now (and which has finally come!) represents for me the greatest height that America has attained since the Declaration of Independence. ‘When America sneeze, the world catches cold’ (Like it or not it is the truth) and so by extension veritable lessons are in these for the whole world to learn: we can soar to the greatest height of Reason known to Man if only we can shrug off the backpack of deadweight bricks that is the various bias and idiosyncrasies we so haughtily carry.

As i join billions of people the world over celebrating Obama’s triumphal entry into the Jerusalem that is the White House for African-Americans (well, from now on it is), I’m inspired. I belief that just like Barack Obama, i can reach out, beyond these squalor and murk that’s Africa my continent, i too can reach out and touch the sun like he ‘d done. Yeah, this is a dream i can believe in now.
so do you have an Obama dream? share with us...

RE: current affairs
my friend dinbaba, one piece of advice from an old man...no one has the patience (or perhaps even the brain) to read a thesis as long as you have just put down.

i just about manged to read the last paragraph, so next time, just para-phrase for us abeg.

we are all too old here and cant handle more than one liners.
yes, i do have an Obama like dream, but i wont share it cos no one knew of his dream till it happened...dats the ting about dreams, they are supposed to be secret and confidential.
