So I want to say to my supporters: when you hear people saying or think to yourself “If only” or “What if”, I say, please, don’t go there. Every moment wasted looking back keeps us from moving forward.
Life is too short; time is too precious; and the stakes are too high to dwell on what might have been. duanwenw.com We have to work together for what still can be. And that is why I will work my heart out to make sure that Senator Obama becomes our next president.
When we first started, people everywhere asked the same question: could a woman really serve as commander-in-chief? duanwenw.com Well, I think we answered that one. As we gather here today in this historic, magnificent building, the 50th woman to leave this Earth is orbiting overhead. If we can launch 50 women into space, we can someday launch a woman into the White House. Although we weren’t able to shatter* that highest, hardest glass ceiling this time, thanks to you, it’s got about 18 million cracks in it.
And the light is shining through as never before, filling us all with hope. Indeed, the path will be a little easier next time.
我的信念This I Believe
I believe it is possible for ordinary people to achieve extraordinary things. For me, the difference between an "ordinary" and an "extraordinary" person is not the title that person might have, but what they do to make the world a better place for us all.
I have no idea why people choose to do what they do. duanwenw.com When I was a kid I didn’t know what I wanted to be when I grew up, but I did know what I didn’t want to do. I didn’t want to grow up. And I certainly didn’t think about being an activist. I didn’t even really know what one was.
My older brother was born deaf. Growing up, I ended up defending him and I often think that is what started me on my path to whatever it is I am today.
If I have any power as an individual, it’s because I work with other individuals in countries all over duanwenw.com the world. We are ordinary people and we’ve all worked together to bring about extraordinary change.
I believe that words are easy. I believe that truth is told in the actions we take. And I believe that if enough ordinary people supported our desire for a better world with action we could accomplish absolutely extraordinary things.
谱写生命的乐章Write Your Own Life
Suppose someone gave you a pen —a sealed, solid-colored pen.
You couldn’t see how much ink it had. It might run dry after the first few words or last just long enough to create a masterpiece (or several) that would last forever. You don’t know before you begin.
Under the rules of the game, you really never know. You have to take a chance!
Actually, no rule of the game states2 you must do anything. Instead of picking up and using the pen, duanwenw.com you could leave it on a shelf or in a drawer where it will dry up, unused.
But if you do decide to use it, what would you do with it? How would you play the game?
Would you plan and plan before you ever wrote a word? Would your plans be so many that you never even started writing?
Or would you take the pen in hand, plunge right in and just do it?
Would you write cautiously and carefully, as if the pen might run dry the next moment, duanwenw.com or would you pretend or believe (or pretend to believe) that the pen will write forever?
And of what would you write: Of love? Hate? Fun? Misery? Life? Death? Nothing? Everything?
Would you stay in or on the lines, or see no lines at all, even if they were there?
There’s a lot to think about here, isn’t there?
Now, suppose someone gave you a life...
