Yes We Can!

I first saw this music video several weeks ago, and i was stunned by how effective it was in mobilizing emotions. If only BN politicians could be so progressive…

will.i.am tells us in his own words why and how he wrote the song.

it was that speech…

like many great speeches…

that one moved me…

because words and ideas are powerful…

It made me think…

and realize that today we have “very few” leaders…

maybe none…

but that speech…

it inspired me…

it inspired me to look inside myself and outwards towards the world…

it inspired me to want to change myself to better the world…

and take a “leap” towards change…

and hope that others become inspired to do the same…

change themselves..

change their greed…

change their fears…

and if we “change that”

“then hey”..

we got something right…???…

This is the speech that inspired the song. Hard to find a better publich speaker since JFK. He is quite amazing. Many of Malaysia’s tone-dead politicians could do well to learn how to speak as well as him, not just in form, but in substance. Enough talk about bleeding kerises, more talk about the issues, pls.

This landmark video, predictably, spawned several imitations; one of the best of which, is a parody of Senator McCain, the Republican candidate for President of the United States. God help us all, should he win.
