Yes we can

Wahrscheinlich kennt es eh schon jeder, aber ich find es einfach genial, was die Jungs da, zusammen mit Scarlet Johansson und Nicole Scherzinger, aus der Rede von Barack Obama gezimmert haben.

Nachtrag: Das Ganze basiert auf dieser Rede (A chorus of millions) und folgendem Wortlaut:

It was a creed written into the founding documents that declared the destiny of a nation.

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 cynicsthey will only grow louder and more dissonant .. Weve been asked to pause for a reality check. Weve 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

6 Gedanken zu „Yes we can“

  1. Die Amis haben’s wirklich drauf. Und ich meine das durchaus positiv.

    Aber stellt euch mal ein Deutscher Politiker würde so eine Rede halten…

  2. Ein Deutscher Politiker würde sich aus der Masse der Jammerer hervorheben. Schau Dir nur jedes Jahr am Aschermittwoch an, was die können: Nur über die anderen schimpfen, Angst schüren und jammern.

  3. Ich finde diese Rede von Barak ist aussergewöhnlich und “inspiring”. Es ist historisch .. Leider wir deutschen können nicht mit so was umgehen .. jeder weiss warum ..
