奥巴马广告批判 - 张羽魔法书 - 张羽魔法书

看了奥巴马的所有演讲稿,的确煽情!但大多数言论都没有超越政府官员俗套的“大词癖”,唯有这一段显示了他的过人之处。他把一个百岁草民的平凡人生上升为美国史诗。。。。,用人情味的生活细节淡化了真实历史的野蛮与血腥,也为他赢得了广大草民的热爱!

 

奥巴马《美国的变革》节选--------

This election had many firsts and many stories that will be toldfor generations. But one that's on my mind tonight's about a womanwho cast her ballot in Atlanta. She's a lot like the millions ofothers who stood in line to make their voice heard in this electionexcept for one thing: Ann Nixon Cooper is 106 years old.这次选举有许多第一,许多故事,将会代代相传。但是,今晚在我脑海的是一个在亚特兰大投下了她的票的女子。她就像数以百万计的在这次大选中排队发出自己声音的人一样,除了一件事:安-尼克松-库珀,106岁了。

She was born just a generation past slavery; a time when therewere no cars on the road or planes in the sky; when someone likeher couldn't vote for two reasons -- because she was a woman andbecause of the color of her skin. 她出生在奴隶制刚刚废除后的那一代,一个道路上没有汽车和天空中没有飞机的时代;当时像她这样的人不能参加投票原因有两个-因为她是一个女子,因为她的皮肤颜色。

And tonight, I think about all that she's seen throughout hercentury in America -- the heartache and the hope; the struggle andthe progress; the times we were told that we can't, and the peoplewho pressed on with that American creed: Yes wecan.今晚,我想她看透了一个世纪的美国——头疼与希望;挣扎与发展,多少次我们被告知我们不能,可美国人的自信却回答:是我们能够做到。

At a time when women's voices were silenced and their hopesdismissed, she lived to see them stand up and speak out and reachfor the ballot. Yes wecan.当时,妇女的声音被压制,他们的希望被驳回,可她活着看到他们站起来,发出自己的声音,并且投下自己的票。是我们能够做到。

When there was despair in the dust bowl and depression acrossthe land, she saw a nation conquer fear itself with a New Deal, newjobs, a new sense of common purpose. Yes wecan.当饥饿来到,衰退发生时,她看到了这个国家是如何以新政,新工作,和全新的共同目标来战胜恐惧的。是我们能够做到。

When the bombs fell on our harbor and tyranny threatened theworld, she was there to witness a generation rise to greatness anda democracy was saved. Yes wecan.当炸弹落到我们的港口,独裁者威胁世界的时候,她亲眼见证了一代人的崛起和民主得以挽救。是我们能够做到。

She was there for the buses in Montgomery, the hoses inBirmingham, a bridge in Selma, and a preacher from Atlanta who tolda people that "We Shall Overcome." Yes we can. 她去蒙哥马利搭乘公共汽车,她去伯明翰面对水龙头,她去塞尔玛占桥……她听来自亚特兰大的牧师告诉大家:“我们能打破种族障碍”,是我们能够做到。

A man touched down on the moon, a wall came down in Berlin, aworld was connected by our own science andimagination.一个人踏上了月球,一堵墙在柏林倒下,这个世界因科学和想像而相连。

And this year, in this election, she touched her finger to ascreen, and cast her vote, because after 106 years in America,through the best of times and the darkest of hours, she knows howAmerica canchange.今年,在这次选举中,她把她的手指放到屏幕上,投下她的选票,因为106年后的美国,经历了最好的时光与最难的岁月,她知道怎样可以改变美国。

Yes we can.是我们能够做到。

America, we have come so far. We have seen so much. But there isso much more to do. So tonight, let us ask ourselves -- if ourchildren should live to see the next century; if my daughtersshould be so lucky to live as long as Ann Nixon Cooper, what changewill they see? What progress will we have made?美国,我们来到迄今。我们已经看到这么多。但有这么多事情要做。因此,今夜,让我们反问一下我们自己,如果我们的孩子能够活到下个世纪;如果我的女儿能够幸运地活得像安-尼克森-库珀那样长,他们将会看到什么样的变化?我们那时将会取得什么样的进步?

This is our chance to answer that call. This is ourmoment.我们应该回答这个问题,这是我们的时代。

This is our time, to put our people back to work and open doorsof opportunity for our kids; to restore prosperity and promote thecause of peace; to reclaim the American dream and reaffirm thatfundamental truth, that, out of many, we are one; that while webreathe, we hope. And where we are met with cynicism and doubts andthose who tell us that we can't, we will respond with that timelesscreed that sums up the spirit of a people: Yes, we can.这是我们的时代,要使我们的人民重新工作并将机会留给我们的子孙;重新恢复繁荣并促进和平;回归我们的美国梦想并重申一个基本事实--在众人之中,我们也是其中一个;当我们呼吸,当我们充满希望的时候,我们遭遇冷嘲热讽和质疑,那些人认为我们无法做到。我们将用一句话来做出回应:不,我们可以!

Thankyou. God bless you. And may God bless the United States ofAmerica.谢谢您。上帝保佑你。愿上帝保佑美利坚合众国。
