  Barack Obama Music Video  

Wednesday, August 13, 2008

Dear Barack Obama,

When I heard you speak to the group of us outside at the Santa Fe rally on February 1, it was as if I were struck by a bolt of lightning. In one fell swoop, I felt an awareness of who you are and your presence as a portal for the consciousness and change the planet is poised for. For the first time in my life, I felt called to contribute whatever I could to a political campaign.  As you said, we don’t have any time to lose. In the end, I wanted to feel that I had done the very most I could to help our country elect a leader who would help shape a future that we and the world deserve. I am grateful to have been given the vision to make the Choose to Unite music video with love, quality and TLC, and to see it come to fruition.

I want to share the perceptions of one of the first people (a writer named Rinaja) who saw the finished product when it landed on my desk today, which I asked if she would put in writing:


“This video was conceived as a medium for calling into the collective human consciousness of this country the potential for union that reflects the larger truth—that we are all One. The project gathered its own momentum as a highly diversified group of people, representing various ages, ethnic backgrounds, races and color, came together both physically and in spirit to celebrate the vision of hope and change that you represent.

A myriad of overlays of music, light, love, joy, dance, peoples’ radiance and Santa Fe’s beauty offer a magnificent visible display to be thoroughly enjoyed. And the power of the video is its reflection of an enormous invisible energy. It emanates the attainability of our planet’s highest imperative—to live in harmony so that each expression of life is supported by the whole.”


In the making of this video, I have talked to hundreds of people about you and the hope that your leadership could offer. This work reflects the feelings of a larger community of people who care so deeply for the future of humanity and the world.

With gratitude and blessings for your being,

Susan Slotter
