You can tell sometimes when real change is coming, and last night with Obama’s acceptance speech ending a flawless convention you could feel the ocean swell rising. When a tsunami approaches, animals, especially elephants, sense it and head for high ground long before humans catch on. Usually we are the last to notice when something huge is coming.
We need to remember that before change can come, first there must be destruction. As for our country we can now see the damage clearly, what with 911 and the Bush followup with self inflicted damage to our nation.For those who see the wave on the horizon and are ready to ride, their own lives undergo change as well. Change is not a superficial ripple. Real change is a wave that carries everything with it. One either rides it or drowns. Change has no favorites. Change doesn’t mess around. God is change.
So as the tsunami of change moves across our nation, we can see those who are learning how to ride it and those who resist it. For those wanting to ride there is hope and renewed energy; for those who don’t there is only fear and stagnation.
