Whose going to lift us up?



Whose going to lift us up?, originally uploaded by Rabujee.

The other day I posted this shot to Flickr in my way of reminding people how important it will be to vote this year. I know that every time elections come around, there's a whole lot of negativity in the news. Sometimes, its nice to just find out the basics about a person and their attributes. Anyways, take some time out to read this article please. I hope that its a true account because it really gave me a nice feeling.

wow that was very generous of him to do that. and especially since he was a poorly paid community worker (he probably worked at a call center or something..lol)

you know how we always hear negative stories about presidents or future presidents and about their pasts and how they used to smoke marijuana or didnt pass a certain exam,etc well i just have to say that it IS refreshing to read something different and like this that shows us his character and personality from a non-political viewpoint.

does that make sense?

p.s. im stupid, but i dont quite get how the pic reminds you of voting..am i missing something?

haha CA if you visit the picture link, you'll see why i related it to voting through my caption...but if you don't have time that's fine ill just explain here briefly... mainly, it was to move detroiters/americans to vote and since the picture is of GM headquarters its representative of our (detroit's) economy ...plus taken at night, i meant to portray how dark the days look for detroit with all the automotive companies in big trouble...bad explanation... its more connected in my head, than what i wrote here...sorry lol...so to sum up i guess the picture mainly to evoke peoples thinking on who would uplift our economy better and in that respect only one candidate proves worthy of our support...
yes i agree that this is a breath of fresh air amongst all the hostility....
he didn't work for a call center lol i think he worked in some church-based community outreach/growth organization in chicago... i THINK thats the one they're referring to here ... but looking at his bio, he's been active with many organizations like that in his past...

snake charmer thankssss for confirming =D, i was being careful not to get my hopes up and find out later in the news that it was a hoax lol...and thank u for appreciating the pic =)
