Good evening. Tonight, as Americans across the country gather with family and friends, I want to wish everyone a happy and healthy New Year.


This is always a hopeful time, as we celebrate the end of one year and the beginning of another. And while 2009 was difficult for many Americans, we must also look back on this year with the knowledge that brighter days are ahead of us � that although our challenges are great, each of us has the courage and determination to rise up and meet them.


It is that spirit that has kept the American Dream alive for generations, and it is that spirit that will keep it alive for generations to come. Happy New Year, everyone.



En Español:


Saludos a todos. Esta noche que estadounidenses en todo el paìs se están reuniendo con familiares y amigos, quiero desearles a todos un feliz Año Nuevo, lleno de salud.


Éste siempre es un periodo de optimismo, ya que celebramos el final de un año y el inicio de otro. Y aunque el 2009 fue dif�cil para muchos estadounidenses, debemos también ver este año pasado con la certeza de que tendremos dìas mejores por delante � que a pesar de que los retos son grandes, cada uno de nosotros tiene la valentìa y la determinación para enfrentarlos.


Es ese espìritu el que ha mantenido vivo el Sueño Americano generación tras generación, y es ese espìritu el que lo mantendrá vivo en generaciones futuras. Feliz Año Nuevo a todos.
