Humanist Thought of the Week: 4 6 2010
Our Shared Humanity
Regardless of what you think of his politics, President Obama’s best speeches are pure Humanism.
Here are the highlights of his Easter Day message.
“Remember the shared spirit of humanity that inhabits us all.”
“Let us hold fast to those aspirations we hold in common as brothers and sisters, as members of the same family – the family of man.”
“All of us are striving to make our way in this world; to build a purposeful and fulfilling life in the fleeting time we have here.”
“A dignified life.”
“A healthy life.”
“A life, true to its potential.”
“And a life that serves others.”
“These are aspirations that stretch back through the ages.”
“Let us make its pursuit – and fulfillment – our highest aspiration.”
A Humanist could not have said it better.
