President Barack Obama told Kenyans on Sunday that their country is at a crossroads and urged them to "choose the path to progress" by continuing to root out corruption, confront terrorism and be more inclusive of women and girls. Closing out a historic visit to the land of his father's birth, Obama said Kenya has come so far in just his lifetime, but can go even further. He said in a speech to several thousand Kenyans packed into an indoor arena in Kenya's capital, "You can choose the path to progress, but it requires making some important choices." The bustling city has been in a heightened state of security since his arrival.
