    Smile An abstract from Obama's speech


    Our founding fathers faced with perils that we can scarcely imagine, drafted a charter to assure the rule of law and the rights of man, a charter expanded by the blood of generations.

    I can't catch words from ''...drafted ---generations''

    It is the kindness to take in a stranger when the levees break; the selflessness of workers who would rather cut their hours than see a friend lose their job which sees us through our darkest hours.

    I can't catch from ''...the selflessness ----darkest hours''

    Can you, masters english, explain/make more cleared the above parts of his inagural speech?
