I read the transcript of Obama's Inauguration speech. Without agreeing with all of what he said, I see something different in it; something good, something humble, something that has no trace of the typical American arrogance in it and in short something beautiful. If he means what he says, and if he says what means, and most importantly, if he really attempts to act on what he says and if he is allowed to act on what he says, then this may really be a new era for the United States. I offer my sincere hopes and wishes for Obama's said intentions as a whole picture to become reality.
....To the people of poor nations, we pledge to work alongside you to make your farms flourish and let clean waters flow; to nourish starved bodies and feed hungry minds. And to those nations like ours that enjoy relative plenty, we say we can no longer afford indifference to suffering outside our borders; nor can we consume the world's resources without regard to effect. For the world has changed, and we must change with it....
This is absolutely beautuful, and if true, Obama will secure at least one person, me, as one of the United States' fans. Let's wait and Let's hope that he really means what he says. Here is the transcript
of the speech.
