He would have fixed this mess GW made. We need to "force the spring" again



Blue Wristbands

FORCE THE SPRING Wristbands

We may have lost the battle, but we haven’t lost the war.

That adage probably takes on new bittersweet meaning in light of this most recent election. The results were like a sock in the stomach. Can you relate at all to that sentiment? You’re in the company of nearly 56 million voters who probably can, plus millions more who didn’t vote. But now is not the time to give up hope for our nation or for ourselves. More than ever, we need to stand up and let our presences be felt and our voices be heard. We need to channel our emotions into something proactive. And we need to do so with pride, strength and dignity.

These wristbands are the beginning of my way of doing just that. Some days reality hits harder. Some days people need an extra push, a tangible reminder to keep going. That is what purpose these wristbands will hopefully serve. The phrase chosen to be on them, FORCE THE SPRING, is from the following:

"Today we celebrate the mystery of American renewal. This ceremony is held
in the depth of winter. But, by the words we speak and the faces we show the
world, we force the spring. A spring reborn in the world's oldest democracy,
that brings forth the vision and courage to reinvent America." – excerpt from former president Bill Clinton’s first inaugural speech

It’s a message of hope, perseverance and inspiration. It’s a message that hopefully many people can draw from and utilize however it best helps them.

I am not doing this for any sort of personal gain. If my efforts do anything to affect someone in a positive way, that is my "personal gain."
