Here are 13 passages from President Obama’s farewell speech delivered in Chicago, passages which may well strike a chord here in India.
“If you’re tired of arguing with strangers on the internet, try to talk with one in real life. If something needs fixing, lace up your shoes and do some organizing. If you’re disappointed by your elected officials, grab a clipboard, get some signatures, and run for office yourself. Show up. Dive in. Persevere. Sometimes you’ll win. Sometimes you’ll lose.”Barack Obama
“Every day, I learned from you. You made me a better President, and you made me a better man. I learned that change only happens when ordinary people get involved, get engaged, and come together to demand it.”Barack Obama
