世界名人网讯(张天润译) 上週六，在中國新年節日期間，聯邦衆議員Al Green接受了美國孔子基金會頒發給他的“對孔子文化傑出貢獻獎”。衆議員Al Green獲得此獎是因爲去年十月二十八日他在美國國會發起並通過了尊崇孔子對哲學、社會和政治思想的貢獻的決議案。
FOR IMMEDIATE DISTRIBUTION
Congressman Al Green Receives Award for His Sponsorship of a Congressional Resolution to Honor Renowned Chinese Philosopher Confucius.
Houston (TX) February 10, 2010 – Last Saturday, coinciding with the celebration of the Chinese New Year, Congressman Al Green (TX-09) was distinguished with the “Outstanding contribution to the culture of Confucius” award, bestowed by the Houston-based American Confucius Foundation.
The organization honored Congressman Green because of his sponsorship of a Congressional resolution to honor Confucius’ contributions to philosophy and social and political thought. The House of Representatives passed the resolution on October 28th of last year.
“By sponsoring this resolution, Congressman Green made a significant contribution to further the already successful integration of the Asian community in the United States,” said Loren Shen, President of the American Confucius Foundation. “We are confident that in the near future this resolution will be meaningful to promote peace and unify the world and we also think it will help strengthen the friendship between the United States and China,” added Shen.
“I think it was important that the U.S. Congress recognized Confucius because his teachings about social relationships, personal and governmental morality, and justice and sincerity have inspired the beliefs of millions of people not only in Asia , but all around the world,” said Congressman Green.
Confucius, born in China in 551 B.C., is considered by many to be one of the most celebrated thinkers of all time. He created and developed the ethical and philosophical system known as Confucianism, which is based on the idea that moral development of the individual allows the state to be governed by moral virtue, rather than by coercive laws.
“This resolution will hopefully encourage the American people to learn about the teachings of someone who has transcended culture and time,” commented Congressman Green.
The Confucius American Foundation was created in Houston in 2006 and its membership is currently formed by nationals of China, Vietnam and other Asian countries.
