Yes We Can

没想到2004年才被全美国认识的奥巴马今年会让美国人如此疯狂,虽然他离我们很远很远。可他的影响却飘过了太平洋,向我们袭来。这是黑眼豆豆主唱 根据奥巴马在新罕布什尔的一场演讲,创作的单曲《Yes WeCan》(是的,我们可以),在youtube上我见识到了这首MV——、斯嘉丽•约翰逊、约翰•莱杰德、卡瑞姆•阿布杜勒•贾巴尔、何比•汉考克等大腕不遗余力地倾情出演让我不禁感叹奥巴马的魅力。这就是部分奥巴马演讲词:Yes we can.

It was whispered by slaves and abolitionists as they blazed a trail toward freedom.

Yes we can.

It was sung by immigrants as they struck out from distant shores and pioneers who pushed westward against an unforgiving wilderness.

Yes we can.

It was the 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 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 have been told we cannot do this by a chorus of cynics...they will only grow louder and more dissonant ........... We've 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.

Now the hopes of the little girl who goes to a crumbling 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 suggests; 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.
