Who Is Barack Obama?/CNNが伝えたバラク・オバマの半生
Barack Obama was born August 4, 1961. He was named after his father. Barack means "one who's blessed by God" in Swahili. Barack Obama Sr. grew up herding goats in a remote village in Kenya but won a scholarship to study at the University of Hawaii. The woman who would be his mother moved with her parents from Kansas to Hawaii where she met Obama's father in a Russian language class.
"By all accounts it was love at first sight. They...Much to the chagrin of her parents, I think." (David Mendell, Author, Obama: From Promise to Power)
When Obama was 2, his father won a scholarship to study at Harvard. He left his young family behind and returned only once, when Barack was 10. It was Obama's mother's influence as much as his father's absence that would shape his life.
