Obama On The Human Race: We Are All A Family
Before returning to the US from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on Tuesday, President Barack Obama had some heartwarming comments calling for world harmony. During a state dinner Obama reflected on seeing the famous fossil remains of Lucy, a hominid that was one of the earliest ancestors to the human race at Ethiopia’s national palace.
The president said: “When you see our ancestor…we are reminded that Ethiopians, Americans, all the people of the world are part of the same human family, the same chain…so much of the hardship and conflict and sadness and violence that occurs around the world is because…we look at superficial differences as opposed to seeing the fundamental connection that we all share.” Read more and check out photos from Obama’s trip at the Huffington Post.
