It is the day of the second presidential debate...the bailout has begun for Wall Street, Ben Bernacke has announced that the financial crisis is deepening...people are frightened...jobs are disappearing...a huge raid in SC today brought about the capture of over 300 people believed to be illegal...just wanting a job that no one here will do. It is a dark world for many.

In that darkness we need light. In that darkness we need hope. It is time people...ordinary people...began to dream dreams and see visions again. It is time for rising above the ordinary by which we are described into the extraordinary which we are. It is time for hope and justice to roll down. It is time!

It is time...
Time for beginnings,
When ordinary men and women
Find that extraordinary spark we truly are...
All of us...
Brothers, sisters,
Dark-skinned people like my daughter,
And pale skinned people like me.
It is time...
For us to band together
In peace and love
To explore the greatness we are meant to be,
When we demand greatness
Of our leaders
And Justice for the least among us.
It is time...
Time to put self behind
And others before us,
To put me into the closet
And we into the living room
It is time...
It is time...
For greatness,
And hopes,
And dreams.
It is time!
Let us do this thing!
It is time!
