My American Prayer


  1. I see I wasn't the only one scouring YouTube last night! I posted another one at my blog that I think you'd like. Love this song! Downloaded it from iTunes after I snagged the vid.

    Beautiful . . . absolutely beautiful. I loved your post yesterday, too. Thanks, Lesley.

    I watched this and started crying after I realized I have been literally holding my breath for most of the day. Thank you for sending me this link of one more inspiring piece of hope.

  4. Andi - I shamelessly snagged this from your fabulous blog! I was so moved, I had to get it up quickly and forgot to post where I found it. I love the other Obama clip you posted. I could watch these over and over again. And, yes, I love the song, too!

    I'm so tense, I can hardly stand it.

    Kim - Thanks. I found it on another blogger's site and was so moved, I had to post it.

    I doubt you'd recognize it, but that huge flag (on yesterday's post) is from the gas station at Cornhusker Highway and 84th Street.

    Take care.

    Swan - My dad said it made him weep, too. It's just so well done and like you, I think many of us are holding our breath. It will be good to finally have this behind us, one way or another. It's been such a long campaign.

    And, I'm amazed at all the comments over on my photo blog from photographers all over the world. This isn't just about us!

    this is so great, thanks for posting. here's to staying up late and watching the results roll in...

  6. Oh please, Les, no credit necessary. I think I snagged it from Terri at Reading, Writing, and Retirement and had to get it up so fast I didn't give credit either! LOL

    I think I'll be diving into a Jack and Coke soon if for no other reason than to loosen up my shoulders!

  7. Heather - Glad you enjoyed viewing the clip. It's one I'll come back to over and over again.
