Moral Imagination

Moral Imagination. These 2 words came out of the mouth of our President Obama this evening. He was speaking about the tragedy that occurred in Arizona.  For me these words made me immediately feel something.  That something was seen first in my mind’s eye and second in my body.  Moral according to webster.com has many definitions; however, all are based on right behavior.  Imagination according to webster.com is the act or power of forming a mental image of something not present to the senses or never before wholly perceived in reality. So what the President is asking us as a country is to create an image of good behavior.  Sounds simple and yet it is something that in today’s society is hard to come by. In light of the tragedy that happened I say let’s give it a try. Let’s try to rise to a higher level and seek to be better than we have been before.  If not for ourselves, honor those who lost their lives and those who were injured.  I am gonna do it, what about you?
