 Think back to the weeks and months leading up to the most recent presidential election. There was a sense, more than anytime I can recall during my lifetime, that every individual mattered, that each of us actually had the power to bring about change in the world. For me personally, it marked the first time I contributed to a political campaign. I made phone calls, I got involved, and I actually made notes about key dates regarding the campaigns in my calendar. The exhilaration of the political climate in 2008 seemed to echo sentiments we all associate with the 60s and 70s, when social change was making gains daily.
