 Sunday was Mother's Day in the U.S. and scores of countries around the world. President Barack Obama honored his wife Michelle in his weekly address.

 
"So this weekend I am going to take a little extra time to say thank you to Michelle for the remarkable way she does the most important job--being a Mom."
 
President Obama.
 
[SOUND] Greek protesters on Sunday hurled firebombs at police guarding the parliament building.  Police responded with tear gas.  The protest came ahead of a vote later in the day on pension and tax reforms, which was demanded by the country's European creditors. If approved, the measure will dramatically increase social security and pension contributions from workers.

 周日,美国和世界许多国家都迎来了母亲节。奥巴马总统在自己的每周例行演讲中特别赞扬了自己的妻子米歇尔。

 
“在这个周末,我想专门对米歇尔说一声‘谢谢’,感谢她出色地承担着自己最重要的工作——做一名母亲。”
 
奥巴马总统。
 
【杂音】周日,希腊抗议者们向守卫议会大楼的警察投掷了燃烧弹,警方则用催泪瓦斯进行回击。希腊原定于当天晚些时候举行针对养老和税收改革的投票,这次抗议就发生在投票之前。该投票是由希腊的欧洲债权国要求的,如果通过的话,希腊的工人们所需支付的社保和养老金额将大幅增加。
