Excerpts from President Obama’s speech “A New Moment of Promise”

President Obama just finished speaking in Ghana and I wanted to share a few key quotes:

I am speaking to you at the end of a long trip. I began in Russia, for a Summit between two great powers. I traveled to Italy, for a meeting of the world’s leading economies. And I have come here, to Ghana, for a simple reason: the 21st century will be shaped by what happens not just in Rome or Moscow or Washington, but by what happens in Accra as well.
