The speech that inspired the video, Barack Obama's
concession speech after the New Hampshire primary, February, 2008 =>
"Yes We Can" - the poem. From a speech by Barack Obama and a video made from it. Plus links to the video and to an MP3 made of its soundtrack. YES WE CAN It was a creed, written into the founding documents That declared the destiny of a nation: Yes we can. It was whispered by slaves and abolitionists As they blazed a trail for freedom: Yes we can. It was sung by immigrants as they struck out from the shores, Pioneers who pushed westward against the unforgiving wilderness: Yes we can. It was a call of workers who organized, Women who reached for the ballots, A president who chose the moon as our new frontier, And a King who took us to the mountaintop, And pointed the way to the promised land: Yes we can, to justice and equality. Yes we can. Yes we can, to opportunity and prosperity, Yes we can, to opportunity and prosperity. Yes we can heal this nation. Yes we can repair this world. Yes we can. We know the battle ahead will be long. But always remember that no matter what obstacles stand in our way, Nothing can stand in the way of the power Of millions of voices calling for change. We want change. We have been told we cannot do this, by a chorus of cynics That will only grow louder and more dissonant. We have been asked to pause for a reality check. We've been warned against offering the people of this nation, false hope. But in the unlikely story that is America, There has never been anything false about hope. We want change. For the hopes of the little girl Who goes to the public school in Dillon Are the same as the dreams of the boy Who learns on the streets of LA. We will remember that there is something happening in America, That we are not as divided as our politics suggest. That we are one people, we are one nation. And together we will begin the next great chapter in the American story With three words that will ring From coast to coast, from sea to shining sea: Yes we can. ###
