And believe me, I know how this can be a messy and frustrating process. My husband and I are on the receiving end of plenty of questioning and criticism from our media and our fellow citizens. And it’s not always easy, but we wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. Because time and again, we have seen that countries are stronger and more prosperous when the voices of and opinions of all their citizens can be heard.

    相信我,我知道这是一个令人困惑而沮丧的过程。我和我的丈夫接收了大量来自我们媒体和公民的质疑和批评。这并非易事,但我们认为没有什么可以取代它。因为我们一次又一次地看到,当所有公民的声音和观点都能得到倾听时,国家会变得更加强大和繁荣。


And as my husband has said, we respect the uniqueness of other cultures and societies, but when it comes to expressing yourself freely and worshipping as you choose and having open access to information, we believe those universal rights -- they are universal rights that are the birthright of every person on this planet. We believe that all people deserve the opportunity to fulfill their highest potential as I was able to do in the United States.

  正像我丈夫曾说过的,我们尊重其他文化和社会的独特性。然而,就自由的表达自我、选择自己所崇拜的东西,以及享有信息公开而言—我们相信那是地球上每个人与生俱来的权利。我们相信,所有人都应享有实现自己最大潜能的机会,正如我在美国所能做到的那样。


And as you learn about new cultures and form new friendships during your time here in China and in the United States, all of you are the living, breathing embodiment of those values. So I guarantee you that in studying abroad, you’re not just changing your own life, you are changing the lives of everyone you meet.

     同时,当你在中国以及在美国了解新的文化、结交新的朋友时,你整个人就是那些价值观的鲜活代表。所以我保证,通过出国留学,你们不仅在改变自己的人生,也在改变你所遇到的每个人的人生。


And as the great American President John F. Kennedy once said about foreign students studying in the U.S., he said "I think they teach more than they learn." And that is just as true of young Americans who study abroad. All of you are America’s best face, and China’s best face, to the world -- you truly are.

  正像伟大的美国总统约翰·肯尼迪谈到留学美国的外国学生时说的那样,“我想他们所教的比他们学到的还要多。”而对出国学习的年径美国人来说也是一样的。对世界而言,你们所有人都是最好的美国面孔,和最好的中国面孔。


Every day, you show the world your countries’ energy and creativity and optimism and unwavering belief in the future. And every day, you remind us -- and me in particular -- of just how much we can achieve if we reach across borders, and learn to see ourselves in each other, and confront our shared challenges with shared resolve.

每一天,你们都在向世界展示你们国家的能量、创造力、乐观,以及对未来坚定不移的信念。每一天,你们都在提醒我们,通过跨越国界,学会在彼此身上看到我们自己,和用共同的决心应对我们共同的挑战。


So I hope you all will keep seeking these kinds of experiences. And I hope you’ll keep teaching each other, and learning from each other, and building bonds of friendship that will enrich your lives and enrich our world for decades to come.

所以,我希望你们都会不断寻求这样的经历。我希望你们能继续受益于彼此,互相学习,同时建立起友谊的纽带,而这些纽带能在未来数十年丰富你们的生活,也丰富我们的世界。


You all have so much to offer, and I cannot wait to see all that you achieve together in the years ahead.

你们有这么多可以给予世界,我热切期待着你们未来的成就。


Thank you so much. Xie-Xie. (Applause.)

非常感谢。谢谢。
