Thank you very kindly, my friends. As I listened to Ralph Abernathy and his eloquent and generous introduction and then thought about myself, I wondered who he was talking about. Its always good to have your closest friend and associate to say something good about you. And Ralph Abernathy is the best friend that I have in the world. Im delighted to see each of you here tonight in spite of a storm warning. You reveal that you are determined to go on anyhow.Something is happening in Memphis; something is happening in our world. And you know, if I were standing at the beginning of time, with the possibility of taking a kind of general and panoramic view of the whole of human history up to now, and the Almighty said to me, ;Martin Luther King, which age would you like to live in?; I would take my mental flight by Egypt and I would watch Gods children in their magnificent trek from the dark dungeons of Egypt through, or rather across the Red Sea, through the wilderness on toward the promised land. And in spite of its magnificence, I wouldnt stop there.I would move on by Greece and take my mind to Mount Olympus. And I would see Plato, Aristotle, Socrates, Euripides and Aristophanes assembled around the Parthenon. And I would watch them around the Parthenon as they discussed the great and eternal issues of reality. But I wouldnt stop there.I would go on, even to the great heyday of the Roman Empire. And I would see developments around there, through various emperors and leaders. But I wouldnt stop there.I would even come up to the day of the Renaissance, and get a quick picture of all that the Renaissance did for the cultural and aesthetic life of man. But I wouldnt stop there.I would even go by the way that the man for whom I am named had his habitat. And I would watch Martin Luther as he tacked his ninety-five theses on the door at the church of Wittenberg. But I wouldnt stop there.I would come on up even to 1863, and watch a vacillating President by the name of Abraham Lincoln finally come to the conclusion that he had to sign the Emancipation Proclamation. But I wouldnt stop there.I would even come up to the early thirties, and see a man grappling with the problems of the bankruptcy of his nation. And come with an eloquent cry that we have nothing to fear but ;fear itself.; But I wouldnt stop there.Strangely enough, I would turn to the Almighty, and say, ;If you allow me to live just a few years in the second half of the 20th century, I will be happy.;Now thats a strange statement to make, because the world is all messed up. The nation is sick. Trouble is in the land; confusion all around. Thats a strange statement. But I know, somehow, that only when it is dark enough can you see the stars. And I see God working in this period of the twentieth century in a way that men, in some strange way, are responding.Something is happening in our world. The masses of people are rising up. And wherever they are assembled today, whether they are in Johannesburg, South Africa; Nairobi, Kenya; Accra, Ghana; New York City; Atlanta, Georgia; Jackson, Mississippi; or Memphis, Tennessee -- the cry is always the same: ;We want to be free.;And another reason that Im happy to live in this period is that we have been forced to a point where we are going to have to grapple with the problems that men have been trying to grapple with through history, but the demands didnt force them to do it. Survival demands that we grapple with them. Men, for years now, have been talking about war and peace. But now, no longer can they just talk about it. It is no longer a choice between violence and nonviolence in this world; its nonviolence or nonexistence. That is where we are today.And also in the human rights revolution, if something isnt done, and done in a hurry, to bring the colored peoples of the world out of their long years of poverty, their long years of hurt and neglect, the whole world is doomed. Now, Im just happy that God has allowed me to live in this period to see what is unfolding. And Im happy that Hes allowed me to be in Memphis.I can remember -- I can remember when Negroes were just going around as Ralph has said, so often, scratching where they didnt itch, and laughing when they were not tickled. But that day is all over. We mean business now, and we are determined to gain our rightful place in Gods world.And thats all this whole thing is about. We arent engaged in any negative protest and in any negative arguments with anybody. We are saying that we are determined to be men. We are determined to be people. We are saying -- We are saying that we are Gods children. And that we are Gods children, we dont have to live like we are forced to live.Now, what does all of this mean in this great period of history? It means that weve got to stay together. Weve got to stay together and maintain unity. You know, whenever Pharaoh wanted to prolong the period of slavery in Egypt, he had a favorite, favorite formula for doing it. What was that? He kept the slaves fighting among themselves. But whenever the slaves get together, something happens in Pharaohs court, and he cannot hold the slaves in slavery. When the slaves get together, thats the beginning of getting out of slavery. Now let us maintain unity.Secondly, let us keep the issues where they are. The issue is injustice. The issue is the refusal of Memphis to be fair and honest in its dealings with its public servants, who happen to be sanitation workers. Now, weve got to keep attention on that. Thats always the problem with a little violence. You know what happened the other day, and the press dealt only with the window-breaking. I the articles. They very seldom got around to mentioning the fact that one thousand, three hundred sanitation workers are on strike, and that Memphis is not being fair to them, and that Mayor Loeb is in dire need of a doctor. They didnt get around to that.Now were going to march again, and weve got to march again, in order to put the issue where it is supposed to be -- and force everybody to see that there are thirteen hundred of Gods children here suffering, sometimes going hungry, going through dark and dreary nights wondering how this thing is going to come out. Thats the issue. And weve got to say to the nation: We know how its coming out. For when people get caught up with that which is right and they are willing to sacrifice for it, there is no stopping point short of victory.We arent going to let any mace stop us. We are masters in our nonviolent movement in disarming police forces; they dont know what to do. Ive seen them so often. I remember in Birmingham, Alabama, when we were in that majestic struggle there, we would move out of the 16th Street Baptist Church day after day; by the hundreds we would move out. And Bull Connor would tell them to send the dogs forth, and they did come; but we just went before the dogs singing, ;Aint gonna let nobody turn me around.;Bull Connor next would say, ;Turn the fire hoses on.; And as I said to you the other night, Bull Connor didnt know history. He knew a kind of physics that somehow didnt relate to the transphysics that we knew about. And that was the fact that there was a certain kind of fire that no water could put out. And we went before the fire hoses; we had known water. If we were Baptist or some other denominations, we had been immersed. If we were Methodist, and some others, we had been sprinkled, but we knew water. That couldnt stop us.And we just went on before the dogs and we would look at them; and wed go on before the water hoses and we would look at it, and wed just go on singing ;Over my head I see freedom in the air.; And then we would be thrown in the paddy wagons, and sometimes we were stacked in there like sardines in a can. And they would throw us in, and old Bull would say, ;Take em off,; and they did; and we would just go in the paddy wagon singing, ;We Shall Overcome.; And every now and then wed get in jail, and wed see the jailers looking through the windows being moved by our prayers, and being moved by our words and our songs. And there was a power there which Bull Connor couldnt adjust to; and so we ended up transforming Bull into a steer, and we won our struggle in Birmingham. Now weve got to go on in Memphis just like that. I call upon you to be with us when we go out Monday.Now about injunctions: We have an injunction and were going into court tomorrow morning to fight this illegal, unconstitutional injunction. All we say to America is, ;Be true to what you said on paper.; If I lived in China or even Russia, or any totalitarian country, maybe I could understand some of these illegal injunctions. Maybe I could understand the denial of certain basic First Amendment privileges, because they hadnt committed themselves to that over there. But somewhere I of the freedom of assembly. Somewhere I of the freedom of speech. Somewhere I of the freedom of press. Somewhere I that the greatness of America is the right to protest for right. And so just as I say, we arent going to let dogs or water hoses turn us around, we arent going to let any injunction turn us around. We are going on.We need all of you. And you know whats beautiful to me is to see all of these ministers of the Gospel. Its a marvelous picture. Who is it that is supposed to articulate the longings and aspirations of the people more than the preacher? Somehow the preacher must have a kind of fire shut up in his bones. And whenever injustice is around he tell it. Somehow the preacher must be an Amos, and saith, ;When God speaks who can but prophesy?; Again with Amos, ;Let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.; Somehow the preacher must say with Jesus, ;The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me,; and hes anointed me to deal with the problems of the poor.;And I want to commend the preachers, under the leadership of these noble men: James Lawson, one who has been in this struggle for many years; hes been to jail for struggling; hes been kicked out of Vanderbilt University for this struggle, but hes still going on, fighting for the rights of his people. Reverend Ralph Jackson, Billy Kiles; I could just go right on down the list, but time will not permit. But I want to thank all of them. And I want you to thank them, because so often, preachers arent concerned about anything but themselves. And Im always happy to see a relevant ministry.Its all right to talk about ;long white robes over yonder,; in all of its symbolism. But ultimately people want some suits and dresses and shoes to wear down here! Its all right to talk about ;streets flowing with milk and honey,; but God has commanded us to be concerned about the slums down here, and his children who cant eat three square meals a day. Its all right to talk about the new Jerusalem, but one day, Gods preacher must talk about the new New York, the new Atlanta, the new Philadelphia, the new Los Angeles, the new Memphis, Tennessee. This is what we have to do.Now the other thing well have to do is this: Always anchor our external direct action with the power of economic withdrawal. Now, we are poor people. Individually, we are poor when you compare us with white society in America. We are poor. Never stop and forget that collectively -- that means all of us together -- collectively we are richer than all the nations in the world, with the exception of nine. Did you ever think about that? After you leave the ed States, Soviet Russia, Great Britain, West Germany, France, and I could name the others, the American Negro collectively is richer than most nations of the world. We have an annual income of more than thirty billion dollars a year, which is more than all of the exports of the ed States, and more than the national budget of Canada. Did you know that? Thats power right there, if we know how to pool it.We dont have to argue with anybody. We dont have to curse and go around acting bad with our words. We dont need any bricks and bottles. We dont need any Molotov cocktails. We just need to go around to these stores, and to these massive industries in our country, and say, ;God sent us by here, to say to you that youre not treating his children right. And weve come by here to ask you to make the first item on your agenda fair treatment, where Gods children are concerned. Now, if you are not prepared to do that, we do have an agenda that we must follow. And our agenda calls for withdrawing economic support from you.;And so, as a result of this, we are asking you tonight, to go out and tell your neighbors not to buy Coca-Cola in Memphis. Go by and tell them not to buy Sealtest milk. Tell them not to buy -- what is the other b? -- Wonder B. And what is the other b company, Jesse? Tell them not to buy Harts b. As Jesse Jackson has said, up to now, only the garbage men have been feeling pain; now we must kind of redistribute the pain. We are choosing these companies because they havent been fair in their hiring policies; and we are choosing them because they can begin the process of saying they are going to support the needs and the rights of these men who are on strike. And then they can move on town -- downtown and tell Mayor Loeb to do what is right.But not only that, weve got to strengthen black institutions. I call upon you to take your money out of the banks downtown and deposit your money in Tri-State Bank. We want a ;bank-in; movement in Memphis. Go by the savings and loan association. Im not asking you something that we dont do ourselves at SCLC. Judge Hooks and others will tell you that we have an account here in the savings and loan association from the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. We are telling you to follow what we are doing. Put your money there. You have six or seven black insurance companies here in the city of Memphis. Take out your insurance there. We want to have an ;insurance-in.;Now these are some practical things that we can do. We begin the process of building a greater economic base. And at the same time, we are putting pressure where it really hurts. I ask you to follow through here.Now, let me say as I move to my conclusion that weve got to give ourselves to this struggle until the end. Nothing would be more tragic than to stop at this point in Memphis. Weve got to see it through. And when we have our march, you need to be there. If it means leaving work, if it means leaving school -- be there. Be concerned about your brother. You may not be on strike. But either we go up together, or we go down together.Let us develop a kind of dangerous unselfishness. One day a man came to Jesus, and he wanted to raise some questions about some vital matters of life. At points he wanted to trick Jesus, and show him that he knew a little more than Jesus knew and throw him off base....Now that question could have easily ended up in a philosophical and theological debate. But Jesus immediately pulled that question from mid-air, and placed it on a dangerous curve between Jerusalem and Jericho. And he talked about a certain man, who fell among thieves. You remember that a Levite and a priest passed by on the other side. They didnt stop to help him. And finally a man of another race came by. He got down from his beast, decided not to be compassionate by proxy. But he got down with him, administered first aid, and helped the man in need. Jesus ended up saying, this was the good man, this was the great man, because he had the capacity to project the ;I; into the ;thou,; and to be concerned about his brother.Now you know, we use our imagination a great deal to try to determine why the priest and the Levite didnt stop. At times we say they were busy going to a church meeting, an ecclesiastical gathering, and they had to get on down to Jerusalem so they wouldnt be late for their meeting. At other times we would speculate that there was a religious law that ;One who was engaged in religious ceremonials was not to touch a human body twenty-four hours before the ceremony.; And every now and then we begin to wonder whether maybe they were not going down to Jerusalem -- or down to Jericho, rather to organize a ;Jericho Road Improvement Association.; Thats a possibility. Maybe they felt that it was better to deal with the problem from the causal root, rather than to get bogged down with an individual effect.But Im going to tell you what my imagination tells me. Its possible that those men were afraid. You see, the Jericho road is a dangerous road. I remember when Mrs. King and I were first in Jerusalem. We rented a car and drove from Jerusalem down to Jericho. And as soon as we got on that road, I said to my wife, ;I can see why Jesus used this as the setting for his parable.; Its a winding, meandering road. Its really conducive for ambushing. You start out in Jerusalem, which is about 1200 miles -- or rather 1200 feet above sea level. And by the time you get down to Jericho, fifteen or twenty minutes later, youre about 2200 feet below sea level. Thats a dangerous road. In the days of Jesus it came to be known as the ;Bloody Pass.; And you know, its possible that the priest and the Levite looked over that man on the ground and wondered if the robbers were still around. Or its possible that they felt that the man on the ground was merely faking. And he was acting like he had been robbed and hurt, in order to seize them over there, lure them there for quick and easy seizure. And so the first question that the priest asked -- the first question that the Levite asked was, ;If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?; But then the Good Samaritan came by. And he reversed the question: ;If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?;Thats the question before you tonight. Not, ;If I stop to help the sanitation workers, what will happen to my job. Not, ;If I stop to help the sanitation workers what will happen to all of the hours that I usually spend in my office every day and every week as a pastor?; The question is not, ;If I stop to help this man in need, what will happen to me?; The question is, ;If I do not stop to help the sanitation workers, what will happen to them?; Thats the question.Let us rise up tonight with a greater iness. Let us stand with a greater determination. And let us move on in these powerful days, these days of challenge to make America what it ought to be. We have an opportunity to make America a better nation. And I want to thank God, once more, for allowing me to be here with you.You know, several years ago, I was in New York City autographing the first book that I had written. And while sitting there autographing books, a demented black woman came up. The only question I heard from her was, ;Are you Martin Luther King?; And I was looking down writing, and I said, ;Yes.; And the next minute I felt something beating on my chest. Before I knew it I had been stabbed by this demented woman. I was rushed to Harlem Hospital. It was a dark Saturday afternoon. And that blade had gone through, and the X-rays revealed that the tip of the blade was on the edge of my aorta, the main artery. And once thats punctured, your drowned in your own blood -- thats the end of you.It came out in the New York Times the next morning, that if I had merely sneezed, I would have died. Well, about four days later, they allowed me, after the operation, after my chest had been opened, and the blade had been taken out, to move around in the wheel chair in the hospital. They allowed me to some of the mail that came in, and from all over the states and the world, kind letters came in. I a few, but one of them I will never forget. I had received one from the President and the Vice-President. Ive forgotten what those telegrams said. Id received a visit and a letter from the Governor of New York, but Ive forgotten what that letter said. But there was another letter that came from a little girl, a young girl who was a student at the White Plains High School. And I looked at that letter, and Ill never forget it. It said simply,Dear Dr. King,I am a ninth-grade student at the White Plains High School.;And she said,While it should not matter, I would like to mention that Im a white girl. I in the paper of your misfortune, and of your suffering. And I that if you had sneezed, you would have died. And Im simply writing you to say that Im so happy that you didnt sneeze.And I want to say tonight -- I want to say tonight that I too am happy that I didnt sneeze. Because if I had sneezed, I wouldnt have been around here in 1960, when students all over the South started sitting-in at lunch counters. And I knew that as they were sitting in, they were really standing up for the best in the American dream, and taking the whole nation back to those great wells of democracy which were dug deep by the Founding Fathers in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.If I had sneezed, I wouldnt have been around here in 1961, when we decided to take a ride for freedom and ended segregation in inter-state travel.If I had sneezed, I wouldnt have been around here in 1962, when Negroes in Albany, Georgia, decided to straighten their backs up. And whenever men and women straighten their backs up, they are going somewhere, because a man cant ride your back unless it is bent.If I had sneezed -- If I had sneezed I wouldnt have been here in 1963, when the black people of Birmingham, Alabama, aroused the conscience of this nation, and brought into being the Civil Rights Bill.If I had sneezed, I wouldnt have had a chance later that year, in August, to try to tell America about a dream that I had had.If I had sneezed, I wouldnt have been down in Selma, Alabama, to see the great Movement there.If I had sneezed, I wouldnt have been in Memphis to see a community rally around those brothers and sisters who are suffering.Im so happy that I didnt sneeze.And they were telling me --. Now, it doesnt matter, now. It really doesnt matter what happens now. I left Atlanta this morning, and as we got started on the plane, there were six of us. The pilot said over the public address system, ;We are sorry for the delay, but we have Dr. Martin Luther King on the plane. And to be sure that all of the bags were checked, and to be sure that nothing would be wrong with on the plane, we had to check out everything carefully. And weve had the plane protected and guarded all night.;And then I got into Memphis. And some began to say the threats, or talk about the threats that were out. What would happen to me from some of our sick white brothers?Well, I dont know what will happen now. Weve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesnt matter with me now, because Ive been to the mountaintop.And I dont mind.Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But Im not concerned about that now. I just want to do Gods will. And Hes allowed me to go up to the mountain. And Ive looked over. And Ive seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land!And so Im happy, tonight.Im not worried about anything.Im not fearing any man!Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord!! /201205/182107that resolves and ordinances to that effect are legally void, and that acts of violence within any State or States而任何以此为目的的决议和法令在法律上都是无效的;至于任何一州against the authority of the ed States are insurrectionary or revolutionary, according to circumstances.或几州的反对合众国当局的暴力行为,都可以依据具体情况视为叛乱或革命行为。I therefore consider that in view of the Constitution and the laws the Union is unbroken, and to the extent of my ability,因此我认为,从宪法和法律的角度来看,联邦是不容分裂的;我也将竭尽全力,I shall take care, as the Constitution itself expressly enjoins upon me, that the laws of the Union be faithfully executed in all the States.按照宪法明确赋于我的责任,坚决负责让联邦的一切法令在所有各州得以贯彻执行。Doing this I deem to be only a simple duty on my part, and I shall perform it so far as practicable unless my rightful masters,这样做,我认为只是履行我应负的简单职责;只要是可行的,我就一定要履行它,the American people, shall withhold the requisite means or in some authoritative manner direct the contrary.除非我的合法的主人美国人民,收回赋予我的不可缺少的工具,或行使他们的权威,命令我采取相反的行动。I trust this will not be regarded as a menace, but only as the declared purpose of the Union that it will constitutionally defend and maintain itself.我相信我这话决不会被看成是一种恫吓,而只会被看作实现联邦已公开宣布的目的,它必将按照宪法保卫和维持它自己的存在。In doing this there needs to be no bloodshed or violence, and there shall be none unless it be forced upon the national authority.要做到这一点并不需要流血或使用暴力,除非有人把它强。The power confided to me will be used to hold, occupy, and possess the property and places belonging to the Government and to collect the duties and imposts;加于国家当局,否则便决不会发生那种情况。赋予我的权力将被用来保持、占有和掌管属于政府的一切财产和土地。but beyond what may be necessary for these objects, there will be no invasion, no using of force against or among the people anywhere.征收各种税款和关税;但除开为了这些目的确有必要这外,决不会有什么入侵问题——决不会在任何地方对人民,或在人民之间使用武力。Where hostility to the ed States in any interior locality shall be so great and universal as to prevent competent resident citizens from holding the Federal offices,任何内地,即使对联邦政府的敌对情绪已十分严重和普遍,以致妨害有能力的当地公民执行联邦职务的时候,there will be no attempt to force obnoxious strangers among the people for that object.政府也决不会强制派进令人厌恶的外来人去担任这些职务。While the strict legal right may exist in the Government to enforce the exercise of these offices,尽管按严格的法律规定,政府有权强制履行这些职责,但一定要那样做,the attempt to do so would be so irritating and so nearly impracticable withal that I deem it better to forego for the time the uses of such offices.必然非常使人不愉快,也几乎不切实际,所以我认为最好还是暂时先把这些职责放一放。The mails, unless repelled, will continue to be furnished in all parts of the Union.邮政,除非遭到拒收,仍将在联邦全境运作。So far as possible the people everywhere shall have that sense of perfect security which is most favorable to calm thought and reflection.在可能的情况下,一定要让各地人民,都享有完善的安全感,这十分有利于冷静思索和反思。The course here indicated will be followed unless current events and experience shall show a modification or change to be proper,我在这里所讲的这些方针必将奉行,除非当前事态和实际经验表明修改或改变方针是合适的。and in every case and exigency my best discretion will be exercised, according to circumstances actually existing对任何一个事件和紧急问题,我一定会根据当时出现的具体形势谨慎从事,and with a view and a hope of a peaceful solution of the national troubles and the restoration of fraternal sympathies and affections.期望以和平手段解决国内纠纷,力图恢复兄弟爱手足情。02/436664Today, I was humbled to join the President at the White House to administer the oath of allegiance to 24 American service members as they became citizens of our nation. These men and women were born in 16 different countries, but they came to the ed States sharing a common purpose, and chose to defend their adopted country even before they became citizens.These men and women are shining examples of the energy, talent, and commitment that immigrants have always brought to our country. I am proud to call each of them fellow Americans.Download Video: mp4 (427MB) | mp3 (19MB)201004/102258On Thursday, I visited a new, high-tech factory in Michigan where workers are helping America lead the way in a growing clean energy industry. They were proud of their work, and they should be. They’re not just showing us a path out of the worst recession in generations – they’re proving that this is still a country where we make things; where new ideas take root and grow; where the best universities, most creative entrepreneurs, and most dynamic businesses in the world call home. They’re proving that even in difficult times, there’s not a country on Earth that wouldn’t trade places with us. That doesn’t mean we don’t face some very tough economic challenges. Many Americans are hurting badly right now. Many have been unemployed for too long. Putting these men and women back to work, and growing wages for everyone, has got to be our top priority.But lately, the response from Washington has been partisanship and gridlock that’s only undermined public confidence and hindered our efforts to grow the economy.So while there’s nothing wrong with our country, there is something wrong with our politics, and that’s what we’ve got to fix. Because we know there are things Congress can do, right now, to get more money back in your pockets, get this economy growing faster, and get our friends and neighbors back to work. The payroll tax cut that put ,000 back in the average family’s pocket this year? Let’s extend it. Construction workers who’ve been jobless since the housing boom went bust? Let’s put them back to work rebuilding America. Let’s cut red tape in the patent process so entrepreneurs can get good ideas to market more quickly. Let’s finish trade deals so we can sell more American-made goods around the world. Let’s connect the hundreds of thousands of brave Americans coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan to businesses that need their incredible skills and talents.These are all things we can do right now. So let’s do them. And over the coming weeks, I’ll put forward more proposals to help our businesses hire and create jobs, and won’t stop until every American who wants a job can find one.But we can no longer let partisan brinksmanship get in our way – the idea that making it through the next election is more important than making things right. That’s what’s holding us back – the fact that some in Congress would rather see their opponents lose than see America win.So you’ve got a right to be frustrated. I am. Because you deserve better. And I don’t think it’s too much for you to expect that the people you send to this town start delivering.Members of Congress are at home in their districts right now. And if you agree with me – whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican or not much of a fan of either – let them know.If you’ve had it with gridlock, and you want them to pass stalled bills that will help our economy right now – let them know. If you refuse to settle for a politics where scoring points is more important than solving problems; if you believe it’s time to put country before party and the interests of our children before our own – let them know. And maybe they’ll get back to Washington y to compromise, y to create jobs, y to get our fiscal house in order – y to do what you sent them to do.Yes, we’ve still got a long way to go to get to where we need to be. We didn’t get into this mess overnight, and it’s going to take time to get out of it. That’s a hard truth – but it’s no excuse for inaction. After all, America voted for divided government, not dysfunctional government, and we’ve got work to do. And when we come together and find common ground, there’s no stopping this country. There’s no stopping our people. There’s no holding us back. And there is every reason to believe we’ll get through this storm to a brighter day.Thanks for listening, and have a nice weekend.201108/148907President Bush Meets with the ed Nations Security Council Permanent Representatives PRESIDENT BUSH: Mr. Ambassador, its good to see you again. Thank you very much for bringing your colleagues from the ed Nations Security Council. First, I want to thank you all very much for serving your respective countries. And thank you for being voices for peace and freedom.Weve had a really good discussion. We talked about a U.N. Security Council role for Darfur and Burma. We talked a little bit about Iran and how the ed Nations Security Council is sending a focused message that the world really offers Iran a better way forward than isolation if they will verifiably suspend their enrichment programs. And then we talked about Zimbabwe. Fridays elections, you know, appear to be a sham. You cant have free elections if a candidate is not allowed to campaign freely and his supporters arent allowed to campaign without fear and intimidation. Yet the Mugabe government has been intimidating the people on the ground in Zimbabwe. And this is an incredibly sad development.I hope that the EU -- I call -- AU will, at their meeting this weekend, continue to highlight the illegitimacy of the elections; continue to remind the world that this election is not free and its not fair.I want to thank very much the leaders in the region, those who have stepped up and spoke clearly, I appreciate them doing every -- taking their responsibility seriously. And I want to thank the members here around the table of the ed Nations Security Council for your strong presidential statement. It was a powerful statement for fairness and decency and human dignity. And I suspect youll still be dealing with this issue. And as you do, I hope you continue to speak with the same clarity that you spoke with last Monday.People of Zimbabwe deserve better than what theyre receiving now. People there want to express themselves at the ballot box, yet the Mugabe government has refused to allow them to do so. This is not just, and it is wrong.Thank you very much.200806/42944

Ladies and Gentlemen, Id planned to speak to you tonight to report on the state of the Union, but the events of earlier today have led me to change those plans. Today is a day for mourning and remembering. Nancy and I are pained to the core by the tragedy of the shuttle Challenger. We know we share this pain with all of the people of our country. This is truly a national loss.Nineteen years ago, almost to the day, we lost three astronauts in a terrible accident on the ground. But weve never lost an astronaut in flight. Weve never had a tragedy like this. And perhaps weve forgotten the courage it took for the crew of the shuttle. But they, the Challenger Seven, were aware of the dangers, but overcame them and did their jobs brilliantly. We mourn seven heroes: Michael Smith, Dick Scobee, Judith Resnik, Ronald McNair, Ellison Onizuka, Gregory Jarvis, and Christa McAuliffe. We mourn their loss as a nation together.For the families of the seven, we cannot bear, as you do, the full impact of this tragedy. But we feel the loss, and were thinking about you so very much. Your loved ones were daring and brave, and they had that special grace, that special spirit that says, ;Give me a challenge, and Ill meet it with joy.; They had a hunger to explore the universe and discover its truths. They wished to serve, and they did. They served all of us.Weve grown used to wonders in this century. Its hard to dazzle us. But for twenty-five years the ed States space program has been doing just that. Weve grown used to the idea of space, and, perhaps we forget that weve only just begun. Were still pioneers. They, the members of the Challenger crew, were pioneers.And I want to say something to the schoolchildren of America who were watching the live coverage of the shuttles take-off. I know its hard to understand, but sometimes painful things like this happen. Its all part of the process of exploration and discovery. Its all part of taking a chance and expanding mans horizons. The future doesnt belong to the fainthearted; it belongs to the brave. The Challenger crew was pulling us into the future, and well continue to follow them.Ive always had great faith in and respect for our space program. And what happened today does nothing to diminish it. We dont hide our space program. We dont keep secrets and cover things up. We do it all up front and in public. Thats the way freedom is, and we wouldnt change it for a minute.Well continue our quest in space. There will be more shuttle flights and more shuttle crews and, yes, more volunteers, more civilians, more teachers in space. Nothing ends here; our hopes and our journeys continue.I want to add that I wish I could talk to every man and woman who works for NASA, or who worked on this mission and tell them: ;Your dedication and professionalism have moved and impressed us for decades. And we know of your anguish. We share it.;Theres a coincidence today. On this day three hundred and ninety years ago, the great explorer Sir Francis Drake died aboard ship off the coast of Panama. In his lifetime the great frontiers were the oceans, and a historian later said, ;He lived by the sea, died on it, and was buried in it.; Well, today, we can say of the Challenger crew: Their dedication was, like Drakes, complete.The crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us by the manner in which they lived their lives. We will never forget them, nor the last time we saw them, this morning, as they prepared for their journey and waved goodbye and ;slipped the surly bonds of earth; to ;touch the face of God.;Thank you. /201205/182066

暂无音频Interview Excerpts of President Bush and First Lady Laura Bush by Doro Bush Koch for StoryCorps On November 12, 2008, the President and Mrs. Bush participated in an interview for StoryCorps, the national oral history initiative. The interview was conducted in the White House residence by the President's sister, Doro Bush Koch. An excerpt aired yesterday on NPR stations as a lead-in to today's celebration of StoryCorps' National Day of Listening. The entire interview will be archived at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. Following are excerpts from the interview: Q How do you want to be remembered, and what are you most proud of? THE PRESIDENT: I would like to be a person remembered as a person who, first and foremost, did not sell his soul in order to accommodate the political process. I came to Washington with a set of values, and I'm leaving with the same set of values. And I darn sure wasn't going to sacrifice those values; that I was a President that had to make tough choices and was willing to make them. I surrounded myself with good people. I carefully considered the advice of smart, capable people and made tough decisions. I'd like to be a President (known) as somebody who liberated 50 million people and helped achieve peace; that focused on individuals rather than process; that rallied people to serve their neighbor; that led an effort to help relieve HIV/AIDS and malaria on places like the continent of Africa; that helped elderly people get prescription drugs and Medicare as a part of the basic package; that came to Washington, D.C., with a set of political statements and worked as hard as I possibly could to do what I told the American people I would do. Q Laura, you have done so much for women and children around the world. What's been your most rewarding initiative? MRS. BUSH: Well, it's certainly been very rewarding to look at Afghanistan and both know that the President and the ed States military liberated women there; that women and girls can be in school now; that women can walk outside their doors without a male escort. I worry about Afghanistan, but I will always have a special place in my heart for the women that I've met there, both on my visits to Afghanistan and then the many women from Afghanistan who've traveled to the ed States on scholarships or with the Afghan American Women's Council, or with a lot of other ways that American citizens have opened their homes to women in Afghanistan so they can be educated quickly, because they missed their education when they were children or young women, because they weren't allowed to learn anything. I think that's really important. I think as we look all around the Middle East, we'll see that women can be the ones who really lead the freedom movement, and that American women are standing so strongly, I think, with the women in Afghanistan and other places. Q Mr. President, one of your education initiatives is the No Child Left Behind. Can you reflect on that a little bit? THE PRESIDENT: I think the No Child Left Behind Act is one of the significant achievements of my Administration because we said loud and clear to educators, parents, and children that we expect the best for every child, that we believe every child can learn, and that in return for Federal money we expect there to be an accountability system in place to determine whether every child is learning to , write, and add and subtract. This is a piece of legislation that required both Republicans and Democrats coming together, and it is a landmark legislative achievement. But more importantly, it focused the country's attention on the fact that we had an achievement gap that -- you know, white kids were ing better in the 4th grade than Latinos or African American kids. And that's unacceptable for America. And the No Child Left Behind Act started holding people to account, and the achievement gap is narrowing. When you couple that with a very strong literacy initiative, which Laura has been a part of, it begins to focus our whole system on solving problems early, and not accepting this premise that you're just going to move people through the system and hope for the best, and insisting upon high standards for every single child. And I'm very proud of that accomplishment, and I appreciate all those here in Washington and around the country that have worked hard to see that the promise of No Child Left Behind has been fulfilled. Q Can you describe the influence our parents had on you? THE PRESIDENT: I think that the gift our dad gave to all of us is unconditional love. It is the greatest gift a father can give a child. And it has made life so much easier in many ways, because if you have the ultimate gift of love, then the difficulties of life can be easier handled. And to me that is a great gift. And he also taught me -- and I think you and Jeb and Neil and Marvin -- that you can go into politics with a set of values and you don't have to sell your soul once you're in the political system. And you can come out with the same set of values. And so I remember, I think it was Jeb said, "Dad was busy in politics, but he invented the definition of quality time." In other words, he was a great father before politics, a great father during politics and a great father after politics. Q What role does faith play in your day-to-day life? THE PRESIDENT: I've been in the Bible every day since I've been the President, and I have been affected by people's prayers a lot. I have found that faith is comforting, faith is strengthening, faith has been important.... I would advise politicians, however, to be careful about faith in the public arena. ...In other words, politicians should not be judgmental people based upon their faith. They should recognize -- as least I have recognized I am a lowly sinner seeking redemption, and therefore have been very careful about saying (accept) my faith or you're bad. In other words, if you don't accept what I believe, you're a bad person. And the greatness of America -- it really is -- is that you can worship or not worship and be equally American. And it doesn't matter how you choose to worship; you're equally American. And it's very important for any President to jealously protect, guard, and strengthen that freedom. 200811/57475
