We are the change that we seek. Yes, we can heal this nation. We don't ask you to believe in our ability to bring change, rather, we ask you to believe in yours. We have been told we cannot do this by a chorus of cynics. We need change. America will rise again. America, this is our moment. America, this is our moment.
And they want that choice. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. It is a sign of neither courage nor power to shoot rockets at sleeping children, or to blow up old women on a bus. We have been told we cannot do this by a chorus of cynics. Change doesn’t come from Washington.
Change comes to Washington. Yes we can. We are a people of improbable hope. Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time.
