In light of that, there's no more fitting song for today than Savatage's "This is the Time." I spent a few hours tonight whipping us up a little inspiration:
This is the time,
And this is the place,
And these are the signs
That we must embrace.
The moment is now
In all history
The time has arrived,
And this is the one place to be.
I don't think there will be another election like this in our lifetimes.
Carpe diem, my darlings. Seize the day for Obama, for America, and for us. Seize it for those who cannot:
Seize this day for them, and for yourselves. This is our time. This is our place. This is our moment.
Dear Americans, then, whom I have never met, and yet whom I love with all my heart. This is my plea to you. Do it for me. Get out the vote with every bit of strength you have.
Do what we cannot, myself and my friends and all the other Britkids from a thousand different backgrounds, who wait and hope. Because we may not be your fellow citizens, but we are your honorary fellow liberals. And we're with you.
Yes we can.
