President Barack Obama appealed to Europeans Wednesday to recommit to the war-won ideals of freedom and human dignity in response to Russia's actions over Ukraine, calling the crisis a global "moment of testing" in which those voicing such values would ultimately triumph.Painting a historical arc across the major global clashes of the last century and beyond, Obama said young people born today come into a world more devoid of conflict and replete with freedom than at any time in history, even if that providence was not fully appreciated. Drawing on modern struggles, such as gay rights, as well as the world wars of the twentieth century, Obama sought to connect the American democratic experiment with the blood spilled by Europeans seeking to solidify their own right to self-determination.
