Chrishayden, this is a short web film that has been making the circuit among bloggers. The site doesn't have an "about" or "further info" section so it's impossible to know who is behind it. At any rate, though, it is very well done: A series of people--purposefully "diverse"--stating a kind of pledge. The main upshot of the message is that it is time for people of good will to get over the election, current state of US govt, etc and get to work to take back our country.

I might have been in a bad mood or something, but when I first saw it I was a bit underwhelmed. I thought, "where were these folks for the last 400 years during various 'battles' to make our country do and be the right thing?" It just seemed to me the type of empty talk that gets some people fired up, but that has no real context--not to mention concrete plans for how such work should proceed.

Since then, though, I have calmed down somewhat. If this little video makes some people feel hopeful, then great, I guess.
