Barack Obama Can't Do it Without You

Change isn't going to happen by watching the president to see if change happens. The change we wanted was change within ourselves. No president can do that. We have to do it. You have to do it.

Want politics to be different? Stop creating and listening to attacks on politicians.

Stop giving support to those that create unending steams of trash talk: from The Daily Kos on the left to Michelle Malkin on the right. They have many important and intelligent things to say, but they are hidden amid an endless stream of attacks on their opponents.

Want media to be different? Stop creating, watching, and passing around cruelty, pranks, bad taste, and embarrassment. Turn off those channels. Vote with your ear and eyes.

Want people to be different? Be different. Be kinder, listen more, help more. If Obama's government is going to make a difference, it needs 250,000,000 volunteers to make it different. Obama's not going to make the world different while you're sitting back to watch to see if it happens. You're the difference that you were voting for. He can't do it; you have to do it.

Clean your street up. Fix your leaky faucets. Walk or bike more. Buy less processed foods. Smile. Make charity a habit. Volunteer. Reduce, recycle, reuse, resell. Learn. Teach.

Be the example you've been waiting for.

Well said, I could not agree more.
