VIDEO - American's Reflect On Barack Obama's Historic Speech Nine Years Ago
By Jatinder Singh, Associate Partner, Lighthouse International
Just over nine years ago on the 4th November 2008, Barack Obama gave one of the most powerful speeches in recent political history after having just won the election to become America's 44th President. In what became known as the "Yes we can" speech, Mr Obama outlined a vision for the United States having been elected as the first African American President.
While there will be many debates as to his legacy, especially with the election of Donald Trump and the rise of the "alternative right", it is an immensely powerful speech filled with hope, as social media's users have commented. Watch a wonderful excerpt of the speech below.
Despite being filled with hope, Mr Obama's speech shows us that hope is not enough on its own. Hope needs action to be taken off the back of it and this requires a community of committed people to deliver on it. One man no matter how powerful he is, cannot do it himself. So while we urge you to watch the video with appreciation, it shows us how limited we are on our own if we want to achieve social change. To read more on this story click here...
