US President Barack Obama’s second term inaugural address on Monday, January 21st, 2013 was, definitely, inspiring to lovers of peace in the world. The US leader’s commitment to a peaceful and safe world is clearly unquestionable. He promised that the United States would ‘support democracy from Asia to Africa; from the Americas to the Middle East…’; stressing the necessity for his country ‘to act on behalf of those who long for freedom.’
Peace can safely be said to be what the world needs the most at the moment. We need peace in Africa, Asia, Europe, America, Middle East, everywhere. Everywhere people are, if not fighting and killing each other, starving, suffering and dying of disease. These problems deprive them of precious peace and need solutions which can only come through democracy, justice and freedom of expression. Unless people enjoy the right to freely choose their leaders, freely take decisions through democratically elected representatives, and enjoy justice, there can be no peace in the world. The President of the United States is fully aware of this and, from his address, is committed to leading his country to play the role that is theirs in this process.
Excellent World International Organization welcomes Mr. Obama’s commitment to the values of peace, democracy, freedom, justice and equality. His speech, undoubtedly, will boost the efforts made by devoted people around the globe to enhance these precious values in view of making the world an excellent place for all to enjoy. Obama put his finger on the point.
