"Ev'ry time I think I've had enough and start heading for the door" - The Jacksons, Never Can Say Goodbye [buy the album] Parts 1 and 2 by me. Now, the supplemental from Africana.com's Brown-Eyed Girl.
I had my own dreams of holding elected office some day, and I dreamed big. I thought I could be President my damn self… now that I see the kind of scrutiny that these candidates undergo I know I don't have a snowball's chance in hell, but it's all good. I don't want that job any more. I want to do something that may actually make a difference. Vote, yes, but do more than that.
Bonus (and probably some much needed perspective for we dreary disillusioned non-believers): Afronetizen's Mea Culpa to Deaniacs.
