  Remarks by the President on Winning the Nobel Peace Prize

  Rose Garden

  October 9, 2009




  Good morning.  Well, this is not how I expected to wake up this morning.  After I received the news, Malia walked in and said, "Daddy,you won the Nobel Peace Prize, and it is Bo's birthday!"  And then Sasha added, "Plus, we have a three-day weekend coming up."  So it's good to have kids to keep things in perspective。

  早上好。我没有料到今早醒来是这样。在我接到消息后,玛莉娅(Malia)走进来说:“爸爸,你获诺贝尔奖了,而今天是波(Bo,小狗的名字—译注)的生日!” 萨夏(Sasha)接着说:“还有,我们就要过三天长周末了。”所以,有孩子帮助保持清醒是好事。

  I am both surprised and deeply humbled by the decision of the Nobel Committee. Let me be clear:  I do not view it as a recognition of my own accomplishments, but rather as an affirmation of American leadership on behalf of aspirations held by people in all nations。


  To be honest, I do not feel that I deserve to be in the company of so many of the transformative

  figures who've been honored by this prize -- men and women who'veinspired me and inspired the entire world through their courageous pursuit of peace。


  But I also know that this prize reflects the kind of world that those men and women, and all Americans, want to build -- a world thatgives life to the promise of our founding documents.  And I know that throughout history, the Nobel

  Peace Prize has not just been used to honor specific achievement; it's also been used as a means to give momentum to a set of causes.And that is why I will accept this award as a call to action -- a call forall nations to confront the common challenges of the 21st century。


  These challenges can't be met by any one leaderor any one nation.  And that's why my administration has worked toestablish a new era of engagement in which all nations must take responsibility for the world we seek.  We cannot tolerate a world inwhich nuclear weapons spread to more nations and in which the terror ofa nuclear holocaust endangers more people.  And that's why we've begunto take concrete steps to pursue a world without nuclear weapons,because all nations have the right to pursue peaceful nuclear power,but all nations have the responsibility to demonstrate their peaceful intentions。


  We cannot accept the growing threat posed by climate change, which could forever damage

  the world that we pass on to our children -- sowing conflict andfamine; destroying coastlines and emptying cities.  And that's why all nations must now accept their share of responsibility for transformingthe way that we use energy。


  We can't allow the differences between peoples to define the waythat we see one another, and that's why we must pursue a new beginning among people of different faiths and races and religions; one based upon mutual interest and mutual respect。


  And we must all do our part to resolve those conflicts that have caused so much pain and hardship

  over so many years, and that effort must include an unwavering commitment that finally realizes that the rights of all Israelis and Palestinians to live in peace and security in nations of their own。


  We can't accept a world in which more people are denied opportunity and dignity

  that all people yearn for -- the ability to get an education and make adecent living; the security that you won't have to live in fear of disease or violence without hope for the future。


  And even as we strive to seek a world in which conflicts are resolved peacefully and prosperity is widely shared, we have toconfront the world as we know it today.  I am the Commander-in-Chief ofa country that's responsible for ending a war and working in another theater to confront a ruthless adversary that directly threatens the American people and our allies.  I'm also aware that we are dealing with the impact of a global economic crisis that has left millions of Americans looking for work.  These are concerns that I confront everyday on behalf of the American people。


  Some of the work confronting us will not be completed during my presidency.  Some, like the elimination

  of nuclear weapons, may not be completed in my lifetime.  But I know these challenges can be met so long as it's recognized that they will not be met by one person or one nation alone.  This award is not simply about the efforts of my administration -- it's about the courageous efforts of people around the world。


  And that's why this award must be shared with everyone who strives for justice and dignity -- for the young woman who marches silently inthe streets on behalf of her right to be heard even in the face of beatings and bullets; for the leader imprisoned in her own home because she refuses to abandon her commitment to democracy; for the soldier who sacrificed through tour after tour of duty on behalf of someone half aworld away; and for all those men and women across the world who sacrifice their safety and their freedom and sometime their lives for the cause of peace。


  That has always been the cause of America.  That's why the world has always looked to America.  And that's why I believe America will continue to lead。


  Thank you very much。
