Good or Bad News from Masschusetts

Posted by Al Hathaway Wednesday, January 20, 2010

Is the optimism we once held being replaced by pessimism? Are candidates who are resistant to change suggesting that we have had enough change and let's return to business as usual? It was interesting that when I watched the acceptance speech of U.S. Senator Elect Scott Brown the picture on the stage was somewhat disturbing. The rich diversity of America was missing and what was projected was people of the same racial and social group. Are we witnessing a reversal from diversity to sameness? If so, people of good will who believe in the vision of a broad based society that is not the exclusive domain of any one group need to heed the wake up call being heard around the country out of Massachusetts. I pray for the sensitivity of Scott Brown to an American where all people are created equal and are endowed by their Creator with inevitable rights. Do not trample upon the wishes, desires and needs of the masses to promote policy that exclude and segregate. Those persons who support President Obama need to heed the message of Massachusetts and understand that forces are at work to reverse the tremendous feeling Americans felt just a year ago when they against all odds voted for an African American President. We cannot relax or become complaisant. The revolution will not be televised. It is being fought everyday in the hearts and minds of people all over America who are organizing to advance their agenda. We must never relinquish ours that addresses the needs of the last, the least and the lost.
