Building Community Where Everyone Has a Chance to Reach Their Dreams

"If we aren't willing to pay a price for our values, then we should ask ourselves whether we truly believe in them at all." -- Barack Obama


"I know my country has not perfected itself. At times, we've struggled to keep the promise of liberty and equality for all of our people. We've made our share of mistakes, and there are times when our actions around the world have not lived up to our best intentions." -- Barack Obama

"It took a lot of blood, sweat and tears to get to where we are today, but we have just begun. Today we begin in earnest the work of making sure that the world we leave our children is just a little bit better than the one we inhabit today." -- Barack Obama


"Our goal is to have a country that's not divided by race." -- Barack Obama


"There is not a liberal America and a conservative America - there is the United States of America. There is not a black America and a white America and latino America and asian America - there's the United States of America." -- Barack Obama


"We have proved that the true strength of our nation comes not from the scale of our wealth but from the power of our ideals - opportunity, democracy, liberty and hope." -- Barack Obama

I hope we realize that the people of New Orleans weren't just abandoned during the hurricane. They were abandoned long ago — to murder and mayhem in the streets, to substandard schools, to dilapidated housing, to inadequate health care, to a pervasive sense of hopelessness. -- Barack Obama


"For that is our unyielding faith - that in the face of impossible odds, people who love their country can change it." -- Barack Obama


"If you're walking down the right path and you're willing to keep walking, eventually you'll make progress." -- Barack Obama
