Yes We Can!

I don't normally blog about anything political. I have at times talked about some of my opinions, but I wanted to share a video regarding one of the candidates. It's basically a speech given by Barack Obama with added background music. In my opinion, this speech evokes the spirit of John F. Kennedy. This message is one of hope and change, something that it seems we all desire.

There are lots of connotations and meanings for the number 18. In mathematics, it's a semiperfect number and in religious circles, specifically Judiasm, The Hebrew word for "life" has a numerical value of 18. According to Chinese tradition, the number 18 means prosperity. In our country, the age eighteen signifies being "of age", meaning that eighteen year olds have the right to bear arms, own property, marry without parental consent, get an abortion, donate their body to science, and serve on a jury (just to name a few).

So, what's the significance of the number 18? Well, it just so happens that eighteen years ago this month, I met the man to whom I would commit my heart, life, and soul. To stop and think that eighteen years have gone by since we first laid eyes upon each other is astounding. I'll never forget that evening. It's permanently etched in my memory. He was the epitome of everything I'd ever said I wanted in a boyfriend. See I had always had a thing for blondes and I'd even said that I'd marry a guy with blonde hair and green eyes, boy was I cocky or what? And yet there stood this tall, blonde, green eyed god. One look and I was gone. Of course I thought he would never be interested in me, cuz you see he was a college boy and I was just a high school teenager. Then when I found out days later that he was indeed interested in me, I was on cloud 9 for days. Well, here we are eighteen years later and he's just as handsome to me now as he was back then. He's still exciting and things only get better every day. I'm truly blessed.

A Story

As formerly requested, here is the story behind my previous post of Guns 'n Roses' "Sweet Child o Mine". You see, I was young and there was this gorgeous guy I was dating and he was a fan of the aforementioned group. I, of course, being the pop/new wave music junkie I was, had never really heard of Guns; heavy metal just wasn't my 'thing'. Unless it was Poison, or Bon Jovi, or maybe even those guys from Europe, cuz we all know it's not really about the music, it's the hunks in the band. Right, girls? Anyhoo, back to my story. I was really into this guy and he was really into me, and as we were grooving in his car one day, he looks at me with his deep green eyes and said that when he listened to that song, he thought of me. That I was his "sweet child". So, naturally I became not only a fan of that song, but of the band as well. Oh, and it didn't hurt that that sweet hunk would play that smokin guitar solo for me. What is it with girls and musicians? So, while I'm not a spring chicken anymore, I'm still his 'sweet child' and always will be.
