Obama's Inaugural Address (Imagine)

 

What is required of us now is a new era of responsibility -- a recognition, on the part of every American, that we have duties to ourselves, our nation and the world, duties that we do not grudgingly accept but rather seize gladly, firm in the knowledge that there is nothing so satisfying to the spirit, so defining of our character than giving our all to a difficult task.

Transcript - Barack Obama’s Inaugural Address - Text - NYTimes.com

Imagine this happened here in Kuwait. Imagine someone talking to you. Telling you to get your act together; you can do it! That we have gone through difficult time but we will come out on top. That our economy will flourish, our nation will rise and our spirits will be lifted. Imagine this person was chosen by merit not family name. Imagine he or she had an agenda and popular support. Imagine looking up to this person and dreaming along. Just imagine..
