I'm off to D.C.
I will be back on Jan 21st with stories and maybe some new FLIP videos, if I can master the thing and improve my cinematography skills.
This for me is less about political affiliation and more about History. This country's history that is being made before our very eyes. People of different faiths, colors, political views and ethnicities gathering together to celebrate something that is greater than all of us. This is more than just about a new administration. It is about what is possible.
My parents moved to this country from Greece (to Chicago) when I was about 7 because of what they thought was possible. They wanted something good for themselves and their family. My Mom & Dad worked for my uncle's restaurant and learned to speak English on the job. They worked everyday and dreamt of owning their own home and giving me the chance for opportunity. Both those dreams were accomplished and like most people, they were realized due to hard work and the belief in possibilities.
I believe in possibilities. They drive me. They inspire me & give me hope for the future and present.
I feel blessed to be able to go to D.C. and be with others that feel the same way regardless of our backgrounds or personal experiences.
I am inspired by the people I meet and the voices I hear telling their stories. This election has encourage and energized many of us.
This is a challenging but incredibly exciting time.
Everyday is a chance to write your own history. Everyday I see people being kind, caring, giving and hopeful. I choose to focus on those moments and though I know that there is no such thing as a quick fix for anything in life, I do believe that we are in for a new set of possibilities.
Thank you to President Bush and his administration for your time and service and welcome President Obama and (new) First Family to your limitless possibilities!
