Obama's favorite part..

"...To those leaders around the globe who seek to sow conflict, or blame their society's ills on the West -- know that your people will judge you on what you can build, not what you destroy. To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history, but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.
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 relatively plenty, we say we can no longer afford indifference to the 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..." - Barack Hussein Obama

After this speech, I'm sure not only Americans are hopeful, but the entire world as well. As of now, I actually don't care if everything he said will be achieved or not, I don't think that far too soon. I'm just really happy for the hope that it's given the world, especially for those who suffer from today's many crises. I'm happy because HOPE is exactly what we need to have. With hope we always have something to look forward to so that however miserable you are right now it wouldn't really matter that much. We must learn never to deprive anyone, including ourselves, of hope..because sometimes, it's the only thing we've got..
