One of the best speeches I have ever heard from a leader.
He was correct when he stated that the world must move away from stereotypes and generalizations. Each of us are individual human beings and are not defined by the group that we are socially or ethnically or nationally put into. This is a lesson which all of us must learn if we are to progress forward as a human. As President Obama correctly put it, "we cannot build relationships based on our differences".
I feel that much of his speech is relevant to our country too. We too have the minority extremists of all types (religious and racial bigots, etc) in our midst who cause discord and mischief among the Malaysian People. I do hope that 1Malaysia will at least be a beginning for us to talk like Malaysians irrespective of ethnic or religious background.
