  原标题:中国留学毕业演讲狂赞美国空气鲜甜不压抑 网友:乞相太难看

  未来网(www.k618.cn )北京5月22日电(记者 辛欣)5月21日,美国马里兰大学2017届毕业典礼,一名中国留学生代表上台演讲,开篇就设问一句“人们经常问我,为什么要远渡重洋来到美国马里兰大学?”她回答了一句颇有深意的“新鲜空气(fresh air)”“我感到了自由(I felt free)”“不再感到压抑(no more suppression)”“每一次呼吸都是一件幸福快乐的事(every breath was a delight)”“我感觉呼吸到了另一种新鲜的空气——言论自由的新鲜空气(the fresh air of free speech)”

  此视频一出不但国内的网友群情激奋,下面是国内微博网友热门评论:

  网友:挺好的,希望中国有这种思想的人都能移民美国,千万别在中国受委屈了。这叫一别两宽,你好国家也好~

  网友:呵呵 只能呵呵了 作为留学生 我真是呵呵了[拜拜]

  网友:呵呵 只能呵呵了 作为留学生 我真是呵呵了[拜拜]

  还有网友指出该生是昆明人。

  网友:她说的这些屁话只会让中国更加妖魔化,她是昆明人,昆明哪里来的雾霾?中国是有不好的地方,作为一个留学5年的中国学生,我,我的同学都在积极的让周围的外国人减少对中国的误会,不偏袒,不吹牛逼,更不会贬低,咱实事求是!她这么一放屁,无知的外国人马上就高潮了了!祝她原地爆炸,全家上天!

  小编也想呵呵了,昆明是我国有名的空气质量好的地方啊,不戴口罩就会生病,又不是北京!前两年不还有小夫妻放弃北京户口到昆明就为了“新鲜空气(fresh air)”吗?

  以下为演讲原文:

  Good afternoon ,faculty students parents and friends。

  教职员工们,同学们,家长们,朋友们,下午好。

  I am truly honored and grateful to speak at the commencement for the University of Maryland, Class of 2017。

  非常荣幸能在马里兰大学2017届毕业典礼上演讲。

  People often ask me: Why did you come to the University of Maryland?

  人们经常问我:你为什么来马里兰大学?

  I always answer: Fresh air。

  我总是回答:清新的空气。

  Five years ago, as I step off the plane from China, and left the terminal at Dallas Airport。 I was ready to put on one of my five face masks, but when I took my first breath of American air。 I put my mask away。

  五年前,从中国来的时候,我准备了5个口罩。从飞机上下来,离开达拉斯机场候机楼时,我正准备戴上口罩时,吸入了第一口美国的空气,然后我将口罩收了起来。

  The air was so sweet and fresh, and oddly luxurious。

  这里的空气是那么的清新甜美,显得格外的奢侈。

  I was surprised by this。 I grew up in a city in China, where I had to wear a face mask every time I went outside, otherwise, I might get sick。

  我深感意外。我在中国的一个城市长大,从小出门都得戴口罩,否则就会生病。

  However, the moment I inhaled and exhaled outside the airport。

  然而,在机场呼吸到这里空气的那一刻。

  I felt free。

  我感受到了自由。

  No more fog on my glasses, no more difficult breathing, no more suppression。

  我的眼镜上不再有雾,呼吸不再困难,也没有了压抑。

  Every breath was a delight。 As I stand here today, I cannot help, but recall that feeling of freedom。

  每一口呼吸都是愉悦的。今天我站在这里,仍然忍不住回想起那种自由的感觉。

  At the University of Maryland, I assume feel another kind of fresh air for which I will be forever grateful — the fresh air of free speech。

  在马里兰大学,另一种清新的空气也令我感怀不已——言论自由的空气。

  Before I came to United States, I learned in history class about the Declaration of Independence, but these words had no meaning to me— Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of happiness。

  来美国之前,我在历史课上学到了独立宣言,但“生命、自由和追寻幸福”这些词句对我而言毫无意义。

  I was merely memorizing the words to get good grades。

  我仅仅是背下这些词句以期在考试中取得好成绩。

  These words sounded so strange, so abstract and so foreign to me, until I came to University of Maryland。

  这些词句显得那么古怪,那么抽象,那么陌生,直到我来到马里兰大学。

  I have leaned the right to freely express oneself is sacred in American。

  我终于明白,言论自由在美国是多么神圣。

  Each day in Maryland, I was encouraged to express my opinions on controversial issues。

  在马里兰的每一天,我都被鼓励着在争议问题上表达自己的观点。

  I could challenge a statement made by my instructor。 I could even rate my professors online。

  我可以质疑自己导师的观点。我甚至可以在网上给我的教授们打分。

  But nothing prepared me for the culture shock I experienced when I watched a university production of the play— Twilight: Los Angeles。

  但最让我震惊的是,当我看到话剧《暮光:洛杉矶》带来的文化冲击。

  Twilight is a play by Anna Deavere Smith about the 1992 Los Angeles Riots。

  《暮光》是Anna Deavere Smith导演的一个关于1992年洛杉矶骚乱的话剧。

  The riots followed acquittal of four Los Angeles police officers in the videotaped arrest and beating of Rodney King。

  四名洛杉矶警察被拍下殴打并逮捕Rodney King,却被宣判无罪。骚乱随后开始了。

  For six days, the city was in chaos as citizens took to the streets。

  整整六天,人们走上街头,城市一片混乱。

  In Twilight, the student actors were openly talking about racism, sexism and politics。

  在《暮光》中,学生演员们公开谈论种族主义,性别歧视以及政治问题。

  I was shocked, I never saw such topic could be discussed openly。

  我震惊了,我从来没见过这样的话题可以公开讨论。

  The play was my first taste of political storytelling, one that makes the audience think critically。

  那个话剧是我第一次接触到政治叙述故事,一个可以让观众批判性思考的政治叙述故事。

  I have always had a burning desire to tell these kinds of stories, but I was convinced that only authorities on the narrative, only authorities could define the truth。

  我一直有强烈的愿望想讲这类故事,但我曾深信只有权威部门才能讲述这些故事,只有权威部门才能定义真相。

  However, the opportunity to immerse myself in the diverse community at the University of Maryland exposed me to various, many different perspectives on truth。

  然而,在马里兰大学融入到不同社区的机会让我接触到了许多不同角度的真相。

  I soon realized that here I have the opportunity to speak freely。

  很快,我意识到在这里我有机会可以自由地说。

  My voice matters。

  我的话是价值的。

  Your voice matters。

  你的话也有价值。

  Our voices matter。

  我们所有人的话都是有价值的。

  Civil engagement is not a task just for politicians。 I have witnessed this when I saw my fellow students marching in Washington DC, voting in the presidential election and raising money for support various causes。

  公民参与不仅仅是政治家的任务。我的同学们走上华盛顿街头,在总统选举中投票,为多种不同的事业募集资金。我见证了这一切。

  I have seen that everyone has a right to participate and advocate for change。

  我见识到每一个人都有权利参与并为变革发声。

  I used to believe that one individual participation could not make a difference, but here we are, United Terps。

  我曾经认为一个人的力量杯水车薪。但是我们团结在这里。

  Together, we can push our society to be more just open and peaceful。

  我们团结在一起,就能推动社会变得更加开放和平。

  Class of 2017, we are graduating from a university that embraces a liberal arts education that nurtures us to think critically, and also to care and feel for humanity。

  2017届的同学们,我们正从一个通过人文教育鼓励我们批判性思考又不忘感受人性的大学毕业。

  We are equipped with the knowledge of various disciplines and we are ready to face to the challenges of our society。

  我们拥有不同学科的知识,我们做好准备去面对社会的挑战了。

  Some of us may go to graduate school, some us may step into professions and some of us may begin a journey of exploration。

  我们中的有些人可能会继续读研究生,有的人可能参与工作,有的人可能开始一段探索的旅程。

  But no matter what we do, remember, democracy and free speech should not be taken for granted。

  但不管我们做什么,请记住,民主和自由言论来之不易。

  Democracy and freedom are the fresh air that is worth fighting for。

  民主和自由是值得为之奋斗的清新空气。

  Freedom is oxygen。 Freedom is passion。 Freedom is love。

  自由是氧气,自由是激情,自由是爱。

  And as a French philosopher Jean Paul Sartre once said: freedom is a choice, our future is dependent on the choices we make today and tomorrow。

  正如法国哲学家让-保罗·萨特所说,自由是一种选择,我们的未来取决于我们今天和明天所做的决定。

  We are all playwrights of the next chapters of our lives。 Together, we right the human history。

  我们是人生下个章节的作者。让我们一起,来书写人类历史。

  My friends, enjoy the fresh air and never let it go。

  我的朋友们,享受这清新的空气吧,不要让它消失。

  Thank you。

  谢谢。(来自观察者网)
