Obama’s inauguration speech

Obama's speech

There can much be said about yesterday’s day, but the most important was said by Barack Obama in his inauguration speech, as 44th President of the USA.

Maybe just to highlight two sentences relating to my recent Moroccan work experience:

“To the Muslim world, we seek a new way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect.”

and

“To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history — but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.”

Image created with Wordle and a nice overview of a similar analysis on the New York Times. His speech can be found here (and on youtube).
