Out of the Rubble: a message of peace and dignity


Out of the Rubble: a message of peace and dignity


For the first time in the American history an African-American becomes the President of the United States of America; Barack Hussein Obama represents a new era of change, new responsibilities and duties to the Americans and the entire world. A new message to all who are oppressed; a light comes out of darkness and a life out of rubble. In his inauguration ceremony, President Obama moved the Americans people from the language of fear, terror and threat to a language of hope, optimism and justice painting a new culture of peace, dignity, honest dialogue and respect. The message to the Muslim world that his administration is moving towards a new approach based on mutual interest and mutual respect where dignity, respect and tolerances are core values for dialogue and dealing with differences.
