United We Serve 共に尽くそう: ミシェル・オバマからのメッセージ

In Uncategorized on 2009/06/22 at 23:59

President Obama has said that the challenges we face are unprecedented and that we need to build a new foundation for economic growth in America. The administration has begun this work with the dramatic new investments in education, health care, and clean energy. But we cannot do this alone here in Washington. Economic recovery is as much about what you’re doing in your communities as what we are doing here in Washington. And it’s going to take all of us working together.


Today marks the kick-off of united we serve, the administration’s nationwide summer service initiative. With the knowledge that ordinary people can achieve extraordinary things when given the proper tools, this initiative aims to both expand the impact of existing organizations and encourage people like you and me to develop our own do-it-yourself service projects.

今日「United We Serve / 共に尽くそう」が開始されました。政府が率先して全国のみなさんに呼びかける、夏の奉仕活動です。道具や方法があれば、普通の人が普通以上のことを実現できます。この呼びかけの企画には、現存する奉仕団体の活動活性化と、あなたや私のような個人が新しい奉仕プロジェクトを生み出す、両方の役割を果たします。

And you can do this all online at In fact, just think of as your online resource for service. It makes it easy to not only find volunteer opportunities in your community, but it also helps you create and promote your own service projects. So if you have a great volunteer idea, like a book drive for a local school, or cleaning up a neighborhood park, the tools on help you turn that great idea into a successful service project.

活動への参加は、サイト から出来ます。 をあなたの奉仕活動の情報センターと考えて下さい。あなたの地域で行われているボランティア活動を簡単に探すことが出来ます。奉仕活動のアイデアのヒントや、あなたが考えた活動の公開や宣伝もできます。地元の学校への移動図書室、近隣公園の清掃など、もし素晴らしいアイデアがあったら の道具を利用して、ぜひ成功させてください。

You may know that service has been my life’s work in many ways. It’s near and dear to my heart. Earlier in my career I helped start a wonderful service organization in Chicago that helped young people pursue careers in public service. I’ve never been happier in my life than when I was working to build that organization.


See there’s a feeling that you get when you help somebody else achieve their goals, the fulfillment of putting your faith into action and feeling that you’re part of something bigger than yourself, and doing your part for the greater good.


And while many of us it may seem impossible to squeeze even more time out of the day and do more, because we all have busy lives. This summer the president and I are asking you to make time and do your part. And I promise you won’t regret it. So, wherever your interests lie, whether it’s working with young people or caring for the sick and elderly in our hospitals, or helping to make the homes in your neighborhood more energy-efficient, or any other issue, the most important thing is for you to get involved.


So log on to and let’s work together to build a new foundation for America. As the President says, America’s new foundation will be built one community at a time. And that starts with you. を訪れて下さい。そしてアメリカの新しい基盤を一緒に作りましょう。大統領が言うように、アメリカの新しい基盤は、コミュニティーひとつひとつの再建から始まるのです。そしてそれはあなたから始まるのです。
