Ante el llamado de Obama, ¿los Castros que tienen que decir?

But at a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized -– at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who happen to think differently than we do -– it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we’re talking with each other in a way that heals, not in a way that wounds.

As we discuss these issues, let each of us do so with a good dose of humility.  Rather than pointing fingers or assigning blame, let’s use this occasion to expand our moral imaginations, to listen to each other more carefully, to sharpen our instincts for empathy and remind ourselves of all the ways that our hopes and dreams are bound together.

We may ask ourselves if we’ve shown enough kindness and generosity and compassion to the people in our lives.  Perhaps we question whether we’re doing right by our children, or our community, whether our priorities are in order.

We recognize our own mortality, and we are reminded that in the fleeting time we have on this Earth, what matters is not wealth, or status, or power, or fame -– but rather, how well we have loved — (applause)– and what small part we have played in making the lives of other people better.

We may not be able to stop all evil in the world, but I know that how we treat one another, that’s entirely up to us.

And I believe that for all our imperfections, we are full of decency and goodness, and that the forces that divide us are not as strong as those that unite us.

Barack Obama, presidente de los Estados Unidos de América. Tucson, Arizona, 12 de enero del 2011.

FIDEL Y RAUL CASTRO: ¿QUE TIENEN USTEDES DOS QUE RESPONDER A ESTE LLAMADO?

ÉL PUEDE SER EL MISMO QUE LES HACE EL PUEBLO DE CUBA, DENTRO Y FUERA DE LA ISLA.

  1. Ellos van a hablar mucho del juicio a posada Carriles ,pero dudo que digan algo respecto a este discurso,hablaran si de la violencia ,lo peligroso ques vivir aqui etc etc,pero nada que desvirtue la imagen que ellos han creado de EEUU,donde ya fue posible un presidente(dentro de la obligatoria lista)afroamericano.
    Creo que lo que mas les debe arder es la elocuencia y objetividad del discurso de Obama.
