Obama's Call to Action

Now it’s time to finish what we started – let’s get going.

High-stepping into his second term, President Obama offers a challenge to America’s compatriots: come together and serve. 

Blaming our inept Congress for all life's ills has turned into a national pastime. But is Congress really what’s holding this country back? The president knows if we truly want change, it’s up to us to get it done.

And as Warren Buffett sagely pointed out on CBS’s Sunday Morning show, “What is right about America just totally dwarfs what’s wrong with Washington. 535 people are not going to mess up 315 million over time. I know it.”

That's not to say positive change comes easy, there's a reason Obama said “We, the people” five different times in his inaugural speech. Meeting our challenges will require the best of all us, 315 million people working together. 

This is our journey, our time. Let’s not waste it.

For those needing a nudge, is a great place to start.
