'Nuff said

'The future must not belong to those who bully women – it must be shaped by girls who go to school, and those who stand for a world where our daughters can live their dreams just like our sons.'
–  U.S. President Barack Obama, to the U.N. General Assembly. The half-hour speech by the President, delivered earlier today (available in full here and viewable online here), ranged widely. (credit for White House photo) But it had a clear focus: promotion of tolerance and suppression of violence, particularly in regions still experiencing what Obama termed "convulsions that can accompany transitions to a new political order."
