The great majority of you belong to the world's only remaining superpower. 
你们中的大多数都属于这个世界上唯一存在的超级大国。
The way you vote, the way you live, the way you protest, the pressure you bring to bear on your government, has an impact way beyond your borders. 
你们投票的方式,你们生活的方式,你们抗议的方式,你们给政府的压力都带来超越国界的影响。
That is your privilege, and your burden.
这是你们的特权,更是你们的责任。
If you choose to use your status and influence to raise your voice on behalf of those who have no voice; if you choose to identify not only with the powerful, but with the powerless; if you retain the ability to imagine yourself into the lives of those who do not have your advantages, then it will not only be your proud families who celebrate your existence, but thousands and millions of people whose reality you have helped to change. 
如果你们选择用自己的地位和影响为那些没有发言权的人呐喊;如果你不仅选择认同那些有权有势的人,也认同没有权势的人;如果你们能设身处地地为那些没有你们这样优势的人着想,那么你们的存在将不仅是你们家人的骄傲,更是你们帮助改变他们现状的千千万万的人的骄傲。
We do not need magic to transform my world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better.
我们不需要魔法来改变自己的世界,我们已经拥有所有在我们自身内部的力量:我们拥有力量来更好地想象。
I am nearly finished.
我的演讲即将结束。
 I have one last hope for you, which is something that I already had at 21. 
对你们,我还有一个最后的期望,这是我在21岁时已经有的期望。
The friends with whom I sat on graduation day have been my friends for life. 
毕业那天坐在我边上的朋友成为了我这一生的朋友。
They are my children's godparents, the people to whom I've been able to turn in times of trouble, people who have been kind enough not to sue me when I've took their names for Death Eaters. 
他们是我孩子们的教父或教母,是在我困难时期可以向他们寻求帮助的人,那些足够善良到当我用他们的名字命名食死徒也不会起诉我的人。
At our graduation we were bound by enormous affection, by our shared experience of a time that could never come again, and, of course, by the knowledge that we held certain photographic evidence that would be exceptionally valuable if any of us ran for Prime Minister.
在我们的毕业典礼上,我们被巨大的喜爱和我们那段不可能再来的共享经历的时光而捆绑在一起,并且,当然,如果我们中的任何一人竞选总统,那张照片也将是极有价值的证明。
So today, I can wish you nothing better than similar friendships.
因此今天,我能够祝福你们的没有比类似这样友谊更美好的东西。
