he is the Man, we are the Wire

A remix of “Man on Wire”: This exceptional documentary tells the story of a high-wire walker who in 1974 performed a sort of “anti-terrorist” stunt by sneaking into, setting up and walking a wire between the twin towers of the World Trade Center. 

With time, the resonance and symbolism of this daring act, combined with the monumental and tragic destiny of the towers, serves to reflect the enormity of the challenges that lie ahead of us.

The passing from one societal architecture into a new one will be a daring moment from which there is no turning back. 

As president-elect Obama takes leadership of a broken nation. He is the Man and we are the Wire.

the darkest night calls for the brightest sun

a billion voices, and a letter:
Friends, Who among us is not at a loss for words? Tears pour out. Tears of joy. Tears of relief. A stunning, whopping landslide of hope in a time of deep despair…
…But what a way to start! Barack Hussein Obama, the 44th President of the United States. Wow. Seriously, wow.  Yours,
Michael Moore

each election is a choice between futures

Our vote on November 4th 2008 will be more than a choice between two candidates, it will be our last chance to undo the blunders of our past two elections. With each vote we will dictate a future that could be either out of control and lethal, or in harmony with nature and humanity. That future belongs to our kids more than us, so let’s think forwardly and act presently.
