艾莫•克鲁尼毕业演讲:如今,勇气比以往任何时候都重要
来源:21英语网    日期: 2018-05-23

上周六,英国哈里王子与梅根•马克尔的盛大婚礼引发全球关注。除了浪漫的婚礼,婚礼上的一位嘉宾也吸引了许多人的眼球,她就是美国演员乔治•克鲁尼的夫人——“最美律政俏佳人”艾默·克鲁尼(Amal Clooney)。


对她有所了解的人知道,Amal不仅气质出众,更是毕业于牛津大学和美国纽约大学法学院的美女学霸,后在英国著名律师事务所Doughty Street Chambers担任律师。她的知名委托人包括:维基解密创办人阿桑奇,以及前乌克兰美女总理季莫申科。



最近正值毕业季,不久前,Amal也在范德堡大学毕业典礼上发表了演讲。她称现如今,勇气比以往任何时候都要重要。“当全世界很多女性面临虐待,工作受到限制;当LGBT群体为平等权利、免于监禁而斗争……我们需要勇气,需要有勇气的年轻人站出来说,这个世界是我们的,某些事一定要被改变。”



"Courage, as they say, is contagious," she started. "People who have had the courage to change their societies—in India, in South Africa, in the United States—inspire each other and create rights for future generations. But when I look at the world today, I see that courage is needed more than ever."

"At a time when women all over the world face physical abuse, restrictions on their ability to work, own property, travel and even have custody over their children, we need courage. At a time when the LGBT community and every continent struggles for equal rights, freedom from imprisonment and even death, we need courage."

"At a time when more journalists are in prison around the world than at any time in the last three decades—and even here at home, [where] the media is under attack from the White House—we need courage. And at a time when our politicians try to conflate the terms ‘refugee’ and ‘terrorist’ and make us fear one another, we need courage. We need young people with the courage to say this is our world now and there are going to be some changes."

"Be courageous. Challenge orthodoxy. Stand up for what you believe in. When you are in your rocking chair talking to your grandchildren many years from now, be sure you have a good story to tell."
