in dreams begin responsibilities

It is an historic day, awesome in the original, true sense of the word. A day worthy of Copland's "Fanfare for the Common Man" (which just happens to be on WQXR radio right now). But, as the president-elect reminds us, the responsibility for change lies with all of us. I came across a passage by C. S. Lewis recently that expressed a similar concept in theological terms. Of course, I have been completely unable to locate it right now. Stay tuned.

I just recently re-read his book, A Grief Observed.

Post it when you find it! I really like C.S. Lewis.

I like that Obama's repeated message is essentially that all he can really do is help facilitate the changes we've demanded. I hope people are taking that to heart.

Or if you're a Marxist, in responsibilities, begin dreams?
