Actor and social activist Martin Sheen delivered the commencement address at La Roche College’s 48th commencement on May 4, 2013.201412/348153。

  • My fellow citizens:同胞们:At this last presidential inauguration of the 20th century, let us lift our eyes toward the challenges that await us in the next century. It is our great good fortune that time and chance have put us not only at the edge of a new century, in a new millennium, but on the edge of a bright new prospect in human affairs -- a moment that will define our course, and our character, for decades to come. We must keep our old democracy forever young. Guided by the ancient vision of a promised land, let us set our sights upon a land of new promise.藉此二十世纪最后一届总统就职演说之际,让我们一起远眺在下一个世纪我们将要面临的挑战。所幸的是,时间和机遇不仅将我们置身于一个新世纪的边缘,一个新的千年,而且是人类事业史上一个光明的崭新前景的边缘,这个时刻将会决定我们未来数十年的道路和特点。我们必须使我们古老的民主永葆青春。在“希望之乡”这一古老憧憬的指引下,让我们着眼于新的“希望之乡”。The promise of America was born in the 18th century out of the bold conviction that we are all created equal. It was extended and preserved in the 19th century, when our nation sp across the continent, saved the union, and abolished the awful scourge of slavery.美国的希望源于十八世纪一种无畏的信念:人皆生而平等。随着十九世纪,我们的国家横跨大陆,拯救了联邦,废除了恐怖的奴隶制的蹂躏,这一希望得以进一步发展和维护。Then, in turmoil and triumph, that promise exploded onto the world stage to make this the American Century.然后,在动荡和胜利之中,这一希望奔上了世界的舞台,使这个世纪成为美国的世纪。 /201304/236773。
  • My Grandpa used to carry an ;Alley Oop; hammer--a very iron pipe with a big hunk of lead melted on the end. The workers made them during the sit-down strikes to protect themselves. When I was growing up, we used that hammer whenever we needed to pound a stake or something into the gard. It is wonderful that most people dont need to carry a heavy blunt object for protection anymore. But just in case, my brother is with me.我的祖父经常扛着一个大铁锤——在末尾熔了一大块铅的重铁管。那是工人们静坐罢工时用以保护自己的。在我小的时候,我们就用那个大铁锤在地上砸树桩什么的。现在人们不再需要扛着个笨重的大家伙保护自己了,这很好。但为了以防万一,我兄弟跟我一起来了。My Dad became a professor at uh... Michigan State, and I was an incredibly lucky boy. A professors life is pretty flexible, and he was able to spend oodles of time raising me. Could there be a better upbringing than university brat?我父亲后来成为……密歇根州立大学的教授,我也是个非常幸运的孩子。教授的生活是非常有弹性的,他有大量的时间培养我。哪里有比在大学培养孩子更好的地方呢?What Im trying to tell you is that this is WAY more than just a homecoming for me. Its not easy for me to express how proud I am to be here, with my Mom, my brother and my wife Lucy, and with all of you, at this amazing institution that is responsible for my very existence. I am thrilled for all of you, and Im thrilled for your families and friends, as all of us join the great, big Michigan family I feel Ive been a part of all of my life.我想告诉大家的是,我来这里不仅仅是回家看看。我难以表达我来这里的自豪感,与我母亲、我哥哥、我的妻子露西,还有你们大家,在这个明我存在的神奇的学院。我为你们感到骄傲,为你的亲朋好友们感到骄傲,我们都加入了伟大的、大密歇根家庭,我感觉它是我生命的一部分。What Im also trying to tell you is that I know exactly what it feels like to be sitting in your seat, listening to some old gasbag give a long-winded commencement speech. Dont worry. Ill be brief. I have a story about following dreams. Or maybe more accurately, its a story about finding a path to make those dreams real. You know what its like to wake up in the middle of the night with a vivid dream? And you know how, if you dont have a pencil and pad by the bed to write it down, it will be completely gone the next morning?我想告诉大家的是,我很清楚你们坐在座椅上,听着一个老家伙废话连篇地做毕业典礼演讲的感受,不要急,我会很简短地说。我有个关于追寻梦想的故事。或者更准确地说是一个找到梦想成真之路的故事。你们知道,午夜从一个逼真的梦境中醒来是什么感觉吗?你们知道如果床边没有纸笔,而第二天一早就忘个精光又会怎样吗? /201309/256217。
