The phrase “Yes We Can” becomes the day’s clarion call for action. Sleepy eyed students smile at the phrase – the very fact that they get the reference is something special. From over here, we sense something special – something like history. Are we guilty of expecting too much, piling too heavy a load on those slim shoulders ? The students have seen that iconic setting before, and a black man addressing a huge crowd there before, on grainy black and white film. So it’s not surprising that expectations should soar, perhaps uncontrollably, for today, at least.
