Fifteen years ago, a September day that began like any other became one of the darkest in our nations history. The Twin Towers were reduced to rubble. The Pentagon was in flames. A Pennsylvania field burned with the wreckage of an airplane. And nearly 3,000 innocent lives were lost. Sons and daughters, husbands and wives, neighbors and colleagues and friends. They were from all walks of life, all races and religions, all colors and creeds, from across America and around the world. This weekend, we honor their memory once more. We stand with the survivors who still bear the scars of that day. We thank the first responders who risked everything to save others. And we salute a generation of Americans – our men and women in uniform, diplomats and our intelligence, homeland security and law enforcement professionals – who serve, and in some cases, have given their lives, to help keep us safe. A lot has changed over these past 15 years. Weve delivered devastating blows to the al Qaeda leaders that attacked us on 9/11. We delivered justice to Osama bin Laden. Weve strengthened our homeland security. Weve prevented attacks. Weve saved lives. At the same time, the terrorist threat has evolved, as weve seen so tragically from Boston to Chattanooga, from San Bernardino to Orlando. So in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and beyond, well stay relentless against terrorists like al-Qaeda and ISIL. We will destroy them. And well keep doing everything in our power to protect our homeland. As we reflect on these past 15 years, its also important to remember what has not changed – the core values that define us as Americans; the resilience that sustains us. After all, terrorists will never be able to defeat the ed States. Their only hope is to terrorize us into changing who we are or our way of life. Thats why we Americans will never give in to fear. And its why this weekend we remember the true spirit of 9/11. Were still the America of heroes who ran into harms way; of ordinary folks who took down the hijackers; of families who turned their pain into hope. We are still the America that looks out for one another, bound by our shared belief that I am my brothers keeper, I am my sisters keeper. In the face of terrorism, how we respond matters. We cannot give in to those who would divide us. We cannot react in ways that erode the fabric of our society. Because its our diversity, our welcoming of all talent, our treating of everybody fairly – no matter their race, gender, ethnicity, or faith – thats part of what makes our country great. Its what makes us resilient. And if we stay true to those values, well uphold the legacy of those weve lost, and keep our nation strong and free. God bless you, and God bless the ed States of America.201609/465796I want to talk about sex for money.我想讲一讲性交易。Im not like most of the people youll have heard speaking about prostitution before.我不像很多之前各位听到过的以卖淫为主题的演讲者。Im not a police officer or a social worker.我不是警察,也不是社会工作者,Im not an academic, a journalist or a politician.我不是学者,不是记者,也不从政。And as youll probably have picked up from Maryams blurb, Im not a nun, either.相信大家已经听了玛丽亚姆的演讲,我也不是修女。Most of those people would tell you that selling sex is degrading; that no one would ever choose to do it;大部分人也许会说,卖淫是可耻的,没有人会选择去做。that its dangerous; women get abused and killed.同时卖淫也是危险的,女人受虐甚至被杀害。In fact, most of those people would say, ;There should be a law against it!;事实上很多人呼吁,“应该有法律来制裁卖淫!”Maybe that sounds reasonable to you.也许这听起来更合理。It sounded reasonable to me until the closing months of ,对于我来说合理的是,当年的最后几个月,when I was working two dead-end, minimum-wage jobs.当我同时做着两份没有出路只拿最低工资的工作,Every month my wages would just replenish my overdraft.每个月的工资仅仅弥补了透时,I was exhausted and my life was going nowhere.当我筋疲力尽不知道路在何方时。Like many others before me, I decided sex for money was a better option.像很多前人一样,我决定从事性工作。Now dont get me wrong -- I would have loved to have won the lottery instead.不要误会,我当然也想通过赢一次乐透来赚钱,But it wasnt going to happen anytime soon, and my rent needed paying.但是那只是可遇不可求的事,我的房租等着我去付。So I signed up for my first shift in a brothel.所以我同妓院签下了我的第一份合同。In the years that have passed, Ive had a lot of time to think.过去的这些年,我想了很多。Ive reconsidered the ideas I once had about prostitution.我重新思考了我对卖淫曾经的看法。Ive given a lot of thought to consent and the nature of work under capitalism.我对于合约和资本主义下的工作本质进行了长时间的思考。Ive thought about gender inequality and the sexual and reproductive labor of women.我也思考了性别歧视,女性的性劳动和生殖劳动。Ive experienced exploitation and violence at work.工作中我经历过剥削和暴力。Ive thought about whats needed to protect other sex workers from these things.我也想过我们需要什么来保护其他性工作者,远离剥削和暴力。201609/463806新东方最新英语口语学习词典U部分暂无文本 /200707/15351
