If you look at the stock market, business activity, or budget deficits, things are dark. But if you consider our capacities and opportunities, our passion and vision, the outlook is bright.--Bill Gates

 

        [博主按]地球公转一圈,和所有的一年一样,2008也终于过了,现在是2009年第一天。今天收到了不少贺年短信,我都一一回复了。不过我还想在博客中送上一份新年礼物给基金会的理事、监事和领导们,以及所有的同事、伙伴和朋友们。这份礼物来自比尔·盖茨不久前在乔治·华盛顿大学的一次演讲: 

……

We are meeting at a difficult time for the United States. We are fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. We’re facing climate dangers, trade imbalances, and record deficits. The global financial crisis is costing people their businesses, their homes, their jobs, and their savings. And we have severe budget strain at every level of government.

That is the dominant story in the news. But it is not the defining story of our times. Here in the United States and around the world, we are finding amazing new ways to heal disease, new approaches to teaching low-income children, new techniques for helping farmers grow more food. We’re at the dawn of a technology-driven revolution in what people can do for one another – and these advances are matched with a new passion, especially among young people, for building a better world.

If you look at the stock market, business activity, or budget deficits, things are dark. But if you consider our capacities and opportunities, our passion and vision, the outlook is bright.

We can keep moving toward a world where every child grows up in good health, goes to a good school, and has opportunities waiting—as long as we stay confident about the future, and keep investing in it.
