…at the opening of the 62nd General Assembly today:

With the commitment and courage of this chamber, we can build

a world where people are free to speak, assemble, and worship as they wish

a world where children in every nation grow up healthy, get a decent education, and look to the future with hope,

a world where opportunity crosses every border.

America will lead toward this vision where all are created equal, and free to pursue their dreams. This is the founding conviction of my country. It is the promise that established this body. And with our determination, it can be the future of our world. Thank you, and may God bless you all.
