오바마의 마지막 주례연설[Video+Transcript]

“여러분이 저를 더 좋은 대통령, 더 좋은 남자로 만들었습니다-
You made me a better president, and you made me a better man.”

시카고에서 한 마지막 연설에서처럼 민주주의는 참여가 완성한다고 강조했습니다.
인터넷에서의 논쟁에서 나아가 현실에서 참여하고 마음에 들지 않으면 신발 끈을 묶고 서명을 받고 직접 정치를 하는 게 참여민주주의라고 말했습니다.


Remarks of President Barack Obama as Delivered
Weekly Address
The White House
January 14, 2017

This week, I traveled to Chicago to deliver my final farewell address to the nation, following in the tradition of Presidents before me.  It was an opportunity to say thank you.  Whether we’ve seen eye-to-eye or rarely agreed at all, my conversations with you, the American people – in living rooms and schools; at farms and on factory floors; at diners and on distant military outposts – are what have kept me honest, kept me inspired, and kept me going.  Every day, I learned from you.  You made me a better President, and you made me a better man.

Over the course of these eight years, I have seen the goodness, the resilience, and the hope of the American people.  I’ve seen neighbors looking out for each other as we rescued our economy from the worst crisis of our lifetimes.  I’ve hugged cancer survivors who finally know the security of affordable health care.  I’ve seen communities like Joplin rebuild from disaster, and cities like Boston show the world that no terrorist will ever break the American spirit.

I’ve seen the hopeful faces of young graduates and our newest military officers.  I’ve mourned with grieving families searching for answers, and found grace in a Charleston church.  I’ve seen our scientists help a paralyzed man regain his sense of touch, and our wounded warriors walk again.  I’ve seen our doctors and volunteers rebuild after earthquakes and stop pandemics in their tracks.  I’ve learned from students who are building robots and curing diseases and who will change the world in ways we can’t even imagine.  I’ve seen the youngest of children remind us of our obligations to care for our refugees, to work in peace, and above all to look out for each other.

That’s what’s possible when we come together in the hard, slow, sometimes frustrating, but always vital work of self-government.   But we can’t take our democracy for granted.  All of us, regardless of party, should throw ourselves into the work of citizenship.  Not just when there’s an election, not just when our own narrow interest is at stake, but over the full span of a lifetime.  If you’re tired of arguing with strangers on the internet, try to talk with one in real life.  If something needs fixing, lace up your shoes and do some organizing.  If you’re disappointed by your elected officials, then grab a clipboard, get some signatures, and run for office yourself.

Our success depends on our participation, regardless of which way the pendulum of power swings.  It falls on each of us to be guardians of our democracy; to embrace the joyous task we’ve been given to continually try to improve this great nation of ours.  Because for all our outward differences, we all share the same proud title: Citizen.

It has been the honor of my life to serve you as President.  Eight years later, I am even more optimistic about our country’s promise.  And I look forward to working along your side, as a citizen, for all my days that remain.

Thanks, everybody.  God bless you, and God bless the United States of America.

정유라와 오바마 둘째 딸의 차이

말리아 & 샤샤 | Carolyn Kaster / AP

버락 오바마 대통령의 고별연설장에 큰 딸 말리아는 있었지만 둘째 딸 샤샤는 없었습니다.
대통령의 딸이라도 고등학생의 의무가 있기 때문입니다.

쌰쌰는 어제 저녁 워싱턴DC에 있는 고등학교에서 저녁수업이 있었고 오늘은 시험날이기 때문에 대통령인 아빠가 고별연설하는 일리노이주 시카고로 갈 수가 없었습니다.
