Hello everyone and happy Independence Day.

At home, the Fourth of July means fireworks, Barbeques, family and friends. But for all of you – Americans living and working overseas – this day takes on a whole new meaning. It’s an opportunity to share our culture and our spirit, to open our doors and welcome new friends and partners. I want to thank you for representing the American people so well, on this and every other day.

Today is a time to celebrate the birth of our nation and the values that have sustained us for 235 years – equality, opportunity and the rights enshrined in our founding documents.

This year, we have been reminded again that these are not just American values, they are truly universal values. And as people across North Africa, the Middle East and around the world risk their lives to claim these universal human rights and freedoms, Americans are proud to stand with them. We are united by our common hopes and aspirations for a better world.

So have a wonderful celebration. And now, there’s someone else who’d like to say a few words. It is my great pleasure and privilege to introduce the President of the United States, Barack Obama.

    Dear Your Majesty,

    May I sincerely congratulate You on the Independence Day?

    I wish You all the very best with Your future career, and I also wish You good mood, great health, sucess in personal and political life in Your life.

    Did You like most the high level conference Women Enhancing Democracy: Best Practices…? If I may ask, what have You taught and what have You been taught?

    May I kindly ask You to write me an e-mail letter as a response?

    Sincerely Yours,
