The Power of Love

Not to play off of the extreme cheezy reflection of the 80’s and Huey Lewis and the News but then again that is what half of the Facebook community does each and every day, but I want to demonstrate the power that love can have over an individual and it’s last effects.

We all feel love in various ways but how often do we experience moments where we sacrifice all rational thought and action just to be swept away in an unforgettable breath of perfection.

This is a journal entry from Tuesday, December 28, 2004 – FYI: We are not together

“We shared a moment Sunday night. Unlike any moment I have shared in the past and more powerful than any emotion that could be created by Hollywood. Was it the stare, or the way she took my hand; the kiss on the forehead or the way she whispered “I love you” soft enough that I didn’t hear her. No matter what, we both shared a moment that neither one of us could or will forget for the rest of our lives. She is still in limbo right now. I cannot understand but each moment together is one more reason to be together.”

Do not be afraid to let yourself be vulnerable. It may not last forever but those rare individual moments of pure unification of love do…


One Year Later…

David Plouffe, Author of “The Audacity to Win” and campaign manager for the Barack Obama’s Presidential Campaign donned the camera’s of Meet the Press this morning as Rush Limbaugh provided insight on Fox Sunday morning. Two perspectives, two parties, and very different messages to the American public. With three major races in the balance for Tuesday, Virginia and New Jersey Gubernaturial and New York’s 23rd District seat, the question of how these elections could effect the Obama Administration loom.

The possibility of two Republicans and one conservative taken down the incumbant Democrats in these three races could have a continuted sliding effect on the public’s confidence in Obama and his pledge for government reform, energy and health care reform and the greening of our nation.

A recent poll showed confidence in Obama at 49% while only 39% believe he is doing an effective job to change government.

With some liberal focused Republicans leaving the party and no sign of a strong leadership presence, there is still a major change that needs to occur to re-energize that party.
With public concern for Obama leading to possible dissention in the up coming polls on Tuesday, there are signs that perhaps promises will not turn into implementation in the near term.
The Republicans in Washington are fighting hard to hold back policy agenda but is it valid?

One year later, discussions are running rampant, the economy has hinted at a recovery, the global turmoil lingers and unification of the two parties is still a dream.

As I look to the audience, what grade do you give this new administration one year later?
