Obama and the Law of Attraction

When he entered the race, Senator Obama’s Intention was to become the 44th President of the United States of America and thus help create a better world in unity through diversity.

He wanted to create a better world and fully put himself in service to do so.  This his intention was larger than himself, and as such people were drawn to the sincerity of his call.

YES WE CAN became the mantra, the slogan, the chant, the Peace Cry, rallying all those who had a deep belief that they could, but who lacked the courage to say it out loudly and really did not believe that they could.

The rallying cry was picked up all over the world and suddenly dreams and hope were unleashed – YES WE CAN became a movement and supported the actions the Senator had to take to realise his dream and hopes, all wrapped up in his intention to become the 44th President. And, YES HE DID


The First Family – the 44th President of the United States of America
The election of America’s First Black President has laid the groundwork/foundation for dreams, hope, love  to be no longer fanciful concepts, but concepts which lead to concrete action, AND, WHO KNOWS, the beginning of a peace movement around the world.


Martin Luther King’s I HAVE A DREAM

Jessie Jackson’s KEEP HOPE ALIVE

The United States is a melting pot for people from almost every country on the planet.  Which means that every country has at least one family member or friend who is a citizen of the United States.

Obama on Peace Corps

Given that I am tuned in and turned on to the creation of a Global Peace Corps, my sensitive ears caught the mention of the possible expansion of the Peace Corps during the second presidential debate.

There are so many young people working energetically during this unprecedented political process, as well as those around the globe following on their televisions, cell phones, laptops, the internet, that it would be effective and efficient for the United States to consider revisiting the existing, unidirectional Peace Corps, and promote the establishment of a Global, multidirectional, Peace or Youth Corps and leave PEACE FOOTPRINTS across the globe.

For example, youth from the USA could consider as usual spending time in any country – not only in the developing countries as is with the current Peace Corps, but in other countries in this globalizing world where issues are becoming broader than developing vs developed country challenges.

Moreover, disparities in the world should no longer be consider rural vs urban.  They should be looked at in terms of eco-zones where behaviours are culled depending on habitats – mountain, forests, deserts, plains, small island states – and because of the environmental challenges faced by theses ecozones, their people are descending on the urban areas in droves – urban areas which are becoming “more harmonious and sustainable” and which are acting like magnets for those from not necessarily the “rural” areas, but from these specific habitats with urban areas built in.

A dramatic example of challenges faced by people in the various ecozones was seen in 2007, where a pygmy chief from the forests in the Central African Republic and his posse descended on the World Bank to make a claim for people to stop cutting down the trees in his habitat.  Indigenous populations are most at risk when their habitats are attacked- some joint venture with logging companies click here

The US will not be alone in this –“Let us change the world, together” said Gordon Brown at the end of a riveting speech on globalization at the Clinton Global Initiative.

Calypso for Obama

Calypsonian sings about Obama

The Mighty Sparrow (the Birdie), Calypso King of the World sings on happily in support of Barack Obama whom he endorsed in 2007.

“The respect of the world, which we now lack, if you want it back, then vote Barack,”


The song gives an exposé which takes the listener through Barack’s humble beginnings and his rise to the top. The sharp lyrics, which skillfully layer a rhythmic Caribbean melody, present Barack as a true family man, capable intellectual, effective grassroots leader and legislator, and a progressive Presidential candidate with a solid agenda for real comprehensive reforms in education, healthcare, economic development, and foreign policy.

“Barack! Barack! He is fighting for openness and honesty in government.
Barack – is doggedly defiant; phenomenal strength; and wisdom beyond comment,” Sparrow sings in the chorus.

The calypso single, titled Barack the Magnificent, is not yet available in record stores.
Francisco Slinger, better known as the Mighty Sparrow and, affectionately dubbed, The Birdie is the unrivaled Calypso King of the World, with a career that spans over 40 years and counting. This artist par excellence has earned his rightful place as “King of the Calypso World” by defeating every other competitor/pretender to his throne. He has entertained audiences across the globe, including, the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, Africa, North and South America, to name but a few. Read more here
