Ladies and Gentlemen,the president of the United States of America, William Jefferson Cliton.
My fellow citizens, at this last presidential inauguration of the 20st century, let us lift our eyes toward the challenges that await us in the next century. It is our great, good fortune. The time and chance have put us not only at the edge of a new century and a new millennium, but on the edge of a bright new prospect in human affairs, a moment that will define our course and our character for decades to come. We must keep our old democracy forever young. Guided by the ancient vision of a promised land, let our sights upon the land of new promise The promise of America was born in the 18th century, out of the bold conviction that we are all created equal. It was extended and preserved in the 19th century when our nation spread across the continent, saved the Union and abolished the awful scurge of slavery. Then, in turmoil and tryout , that promise exploded over the world stage to make this the American century. And what a century it has been. America became the world's mightiest industrial power, saved the world from tyranny in two world wars and a long Cold War, and time and again, reached out across the globe to millions who like us long for the blessings of liberty. Along the way, Americans produced the great middle class and security in old age, built unrival centers of learning and opened public schools to all, split the atom and explored the heavens invented the computer nad the microchip, and deepened the world's frame of justice by making a revolution in Civil Rights for AfricanAmericans and all minorities and extending the circle of citizenship, opportunity and dignity to women. Now for the third time, a new century is upon us and another time to choose. We began the 19th century with a choice to spread our nation from coast to coast. We began the 20th century with a choice to harness the Industrial Revolution to our values of free enterprise, conservation and human decency. Those choices made all the difference.
At the dawn of 21st century, a free people must now choose to shape the forces of the infiormation age and the global society to unleash the limitless potential of all our people and , yes , to form a more perfect union.
When last we gathered, out march to this new future seemed less certain than it does today. We vowed then to set a clear course to renew our nation. In these four years, we have been touched by tragedy, exhilarated by challenge, strengthened by achievement.
America stands alone as the world's indispensable nation. Once again our economy is the strongest on earth, one agaion we are building stronger families, thriving communities, better education opportunities, a cleaner environment. Problems that once seemed destined to deepen now've bent to our efforts. Our streets are safer, and record numbers of our fellow citizens have moved from welfare to work. And once again we have resolved for our time a great debate over the role of government. Today we can declare government is not the problem, and government is not the solution. We, the American people, we are the solution.
Our founders understood that well and gave us a democracy, strong enough to endure for centuries, flexible enough to face our common challenges and advance our common dreams in each new day. As times change, so government must change. We need a new government for a new century, humble enough not to try to solve all our problems for us, but strong enough to give us the tools to solve our problems for ourselves, a government that is smaller, lives within its means and does more with less, yet where it can stand up for our values and interests around the world and where it can give Americans the power to make a real difference in their everyday lives, government should do more, not less. The preeminent mission of our new government is to give all Americans an opportunity, not a guarantee, but a real opportunity to build better bives.
Beyond that, my fellow citizens, the future is up to us. Our founders taught us that the preservation of our liberty and our union depends upon responsible citizenship. And we need a new sense of responsibility for a new century. There is work to do, work that government alone can not do, teaching children to read, hiring people of wealthier roles, coming out from behind locked doors and shuttered windows, to help reclaim our streets from drugs and gangs and crime, taking time out of our own lives to serve others. Each and everyone of us, in our won way, must assume personal responsibility, not only for ourselves and our families, but for our neighbors and our nation.
Our greatest responsibility is to embrace a new spirit of community for a new century. For any one of us to succeed, we must succeed as one America. The challenge of our past remains the challenge of our future. Will we be one nation, one  people with one common destiny or not? Will we all come together or come apart? The divide of racej has been the America's constant curse, and each new wave of immigrants gives new targets to old prejudices. Prejudice and contempt clogged in the pretense of religious or political convictions are no different. These forces have nearly destroyed our nation in the past. They plague us still. They fill the fanaticism of terror and they torment the lives of millions in fractured nations all around the world. These obsessions crippled both those who hate and, of course, those who are hated, robbing both of what they might become. We can not, we will not succumb to the dark impulses that lurk in the far regions of the soul everywhere. We shall overcome them. And we shall replace them with the generous spirit of a people who feel at home with one another. Our rich texture of racial, religious and political diversity will be a godsend in the 21st century. Great rewards will come to those who can live together, learn together, work together, forge new ties that bind together. As this new ear approches, we can already see its broad outlines. Ten years ago, the Internet was the mystical province of physicists. Today, it is a commonplace encyclopedia for millions of school children. Scientists now are decoding the blue print of human life. Cures for our most feared illnesses seem close at hand. The world is no longer divided into two hostile camps, instead, now we are building bonds with nations that once were our adversaries. Growing connections of commerce and culture give us a chance to lift the fortunes and spirits of people the world over. And for the very first time in all of history, more people on this planet live under democracy than dictatorship.
