Prince Harry, met President Obama, in Toronto in September during the Invictus Games to talk about his memories of the day he left office, his post-presidential work with the Obama Foundation and his hopes for the future. This is an excerpt from that interview which you can read in full at the website of The Atlantic. It seemed fitting to share now, as we begin 2018.
I genuinely believe: if we take responsibility for being involved in our own fate, if we participate, if we engage, if we speak out, if we work in our communities, if we volunteer, if we see the joy that comes from service to others, then all the problems that we face are solvable despite all the terrible news that we see, despite all the genuine cruelty, pain and hardship that people are experiencing around the world at any given moment.
If you had to choose a moment in human history in which you wanted to be born and you didn’t know at the time whether you were going to be Prince Harry or Barack Obama or a small child in rural Africa or India, you’d choose today, because the fact is the world is healthier, wealthier, better educated, more tolerant, more sophisticated, and less violent than just about any other time in human history.
~ Barrack Obama
