Though I’m not an American, the “Filipino Dream” is (was?) inescapably and undoubtably heavily influenced by the American Dream. Sadly, we never played that up very much. Patch of land to your name; making a decent living out of hard day’s work; bunch of kids playing in your simple home; a carabao or two (lol)… an education… sure sounds attractive to me. I guess it’s all too easy to lose sight of. Americans are lucky to be constantly reminded. Americans still dream.
Anyway, watch the video if you haven’t already heard this speech. Unlike what we’ve been getting around here (abunchofplagiarizedcrap and stupidity), this made me think: now that–that is a speech. Also, that is a powerful woman and a lady. A weapon for Obama and the democrats for sure.
