You know, I grew up in one of those communities with similar values. Like Merced, the South Side of Chicago is a community where people struggles financially,but worked hard, looked out for each other and rallies around their children. My father was a blue-collar worker,as you know. My mother stayed at home to raise me and my brother.We were the first to graduate from college in our immediate family.

你们知道,我在一个有着相似价值观的社区长大。就像摩赛德一样,芝加哥南部是一个过去人们在经济困境中挣扎的社区,但是那里的人们辛勤工作、彼此照料,以子女为中心。你们都知道的,我的父亲是蓝领工人,我的母亲在家里抚养我和哥哥。我们兄妹是我们所有直系亲属中的第一批从大学毕业的成员。

I know that many of you here are also the first in your families to achieve that distinction, aswell. And as you know, being the first is often a big responsibility, particularly in a community that, like many others around our country at the moment, is struggling to cope with record high unemployment and foreclosure rates; a community where are single payback or an emergency room visit away from homelessness.

我知道你们中的很多人也是你们家族中第一位获得如此殊荣的成员。但正如你们所了解的那样,成为第一就常常意味着肩负着更大的责任,特别是在一个和当前我们国家的很多其他社区一样面对创纪录的高失业率和高抵押房屋赎回权丧失率的社区,特别是一个家庭是单一收入来源或者家庭只是为了避免无家可归的紧急避难所的社区。

And with jobs scarce, many of you maybe considering leaving town with your diploma in hand.And it wouldn't be unreasonable. For those of you who came from communities facing similar economic hardships, you may also be wondering how you 'll build decent lives for yourselves if you choose to return to those communities.

在这样的社区里工作机会很少,你们中的很多人可能会考虑带着你们的学位证书离开城镇。这并非不合理。对于那些来自处于相似经济困境社区的同学而言,你们也许会有疑问:假如我回到了那些社区,我怎么才能过上体面的生活呢?
