Christian was moved again this morning on the ride to d.c. when he heard interviewed on npr about his song, "yes we can." The song is a tribute to, or really a musical version of, an exceptional speech Obama gave during the campaign about the power we have to change and repair unjust and intolerable circumstances, even when the odds seem impossible. Will said he was driven by that speech to accomplish something -- in this case to use the power of his ability to highlight the speech's importance so that children will study it in schools along with other great American speeches.

C and K are planning to catch the, Bono, Springsteen, etc. show tomorrow at the Lincoln Memorial. So curious to see how many millions will be there.
