Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism not just with missiles and tanks, but withsturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannotprotect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our powergrows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, theforce of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
回顾过去,几代人在战胜法西斯主义时依靠的不仅仅是导弹和坦克,更是牢固的联盟和不渝的信念。他们懂得单凭实力无法保护我们的安全,实力也并不赋予我们随心所欲的权利。相反,他们知道审慎使用实力会使我们更强大;我们的安全源于事业的正义性、典范的感召力以及谦卑和克制的品行。
We are the keepers of this legacy. Guided by these principles once more, we can meet thosenew threats that demand even greater effort-even greater cooperation and understandingbetween nations. We will begin to responsibly leave Iraq to its people, and forge a hard-earnedpeace in Afghanistan. With old friends and former foes, we will work tirelessly to lessen thenuclear threat, and roll back the specter of a warming planet. We will not apologize for ourway of life, nor will we waver in its defense, and for those who seek to advance their aims byinducing terror and slaughtering innocents, we say to you now that our spirit is stronger andcannot be broken; you cannot outlast us, and we will defeat you.
我们是这一传统的继承者。我们只要重新以这些原则为指导,就能应对那些新威胁,为此必须付出更大的努力——推动国家间更多的合作与理解。我们将开始以负责任的方式把伊拉克移交给伊拉克人民,并在阿富汗巩固来之不易的和平。我们将与多年的朋友和昔日的对手一道不懈努力减轻核威胁,扭转全球变暖的厄运。我们不会在价值观念上退缩,也不会动摇捍卫它的决心,对于那些妄图以煽动恐怖和屠杀无辜的手段达到其目的的人,我们现在就告诉你们,我们的意志更加顽强、坚不可摧;你们无法拖垮我们,我们必将战胜你们。
For we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. We are a nation ofChristians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus, and non-believers. We are shaped by every languageand culture, drawn from every end of this Earth; and because we have tasted the bitter swill ofcivil war and segregation, and emerged from that dark chapter stronger and more united, wecannot help but belive that the old hatreds shall someday pass; that the lines of tribe shallsoon dissolve; that as the world grows smaller, our common humanity shall reveal itself; andthat America must play its role in ushering in a new era of peace.
因为我们知道,我们百纳而成的传统是一种优势,而不是劣势。我们是一个由基督教徒和穆斯林教徒、犹太教徒和印度教徒以及无宗教信仰者组成的国家。我们受惠于地球上四面八方每一种语言和文化的影响。由于我们尝过南北战争和种族隔离的苦水,走出了那个黑暗时代并变得更加坚强和团结,我们不能不相信昔日的仇恨终有一天会成为过去;种族之间的界线很快就会消失;随着世界变得越来越小,我们共同的人性将得到彰显;美国必须为迎来一个和平的新纪元发挥自己的作用。
