By all accounts, Barack Obama is a great human being and a great dad. He is doing his young daughters proud by showing them that dreaming big and going after your goals are good things to do. I believe this lovely song about dreaming big sung by David Cook on the American Idol finale embodies Barack Obama's personal philosophy.

On Father's Day, Senator Obama delivered a moving speech. If you haven't seen it yet, please go to the following link:

Music...

Original American Ido performance sung by David Cook.
Lyrics by Emily Shackelton.

Here's a link to Emily's myspace page. I think you'll love her recording every bit as much as David Cook's. They should record it as a duet.

"Dream Big"
When I was a little boy
I swore that I would change the world
when I grew up
nothing else would be enough
back then it all seemed black and white
but these days
I just can't seemed to find
the child in me
who always believed

I see it every day
We settle for safe
And lose ourselves along the way

But if we don't Dream Big
What's the use in dreaming
If you don't have faith
there's nothing worth believing
It takes one hope
To make the stars worth reaching for
So reach out for something more

Took a while to perfect a plan
for me to finally understand
that it's not me
faith is something you can't see
I loose the reins
and let them go
I broke the chains of fear
that had their hold on me too long
when all I felt was wrong

I've wiped my tears away
now it's time for a change
No, I can't waste another day

But if we don't Dream Big
What's the use in dreaming
If you don't have faith
there's nothing worth believing
It takes one hope
To make the stars worth reaching for
So close your eyes
and tell me what you see
between what's real
and make believe
here's the path
we've all been searching for
so reach out for something more

than you could ever imagine
then move
don't wait for it to happen
life's too short
for not taking chances
the stars aren't as far as they seem

If you have a Barack Obama inspired creative or community project, let Hope Made Human know about it.
