این سخن‌رانی من رو یاد ِ ابرهم لینکن انداخت. یاد ِ فرانکلین روزولت و جان اف. کندی و مارتین لوتر کینگ انداخت. دوست دارم این دو پاراگراف رو عیناً نقل کنم:

If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time, who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer.

To those — to those who would tear the world down: We will defeat you. To those who seek peace and security: We support you. And to all those who have wondered if America's beacon still burns as bright: Tonight we proved once more that the true strength of our nation comes not from the might of our arms or the scale of our wealth, but from the enduring power of our ideals: democracy, liberty, opportunity and unyielding hope.
