The reality of will and its fundamental power seem to me central in any philosophy.
A note to my friends who are concerned with Charles Sanders Peirce
Interesting that the matter of will is not given a more central position. Because, discussing thought, we might wish to infer that we think because we will to think. Thus, even Peirce's Threes require some action of will to enable that progression of thinking to come into being. While this train may be natural, it does not just happen. The reality of will and its fundamental power seems to me central in any philosophy. We operate within multiple layers of mystery Thinking realistically is a choice, an action.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

I have lived here in (name) for (time). Thanks to (President Obama's (name) Act ... and so forth for ten seconds. Close with a continuation of the story narrated over evocative images and simple acoustic music.
This would be a fantastic way to counter the attacks on the President. For every specific attack, a video that shows the truth. And grass roots people who intend to vote for the President.
