I just finished reading some of what President Obama said in his speech. I think he made plenty of good points, such as, not making excuses for your education; it is something of great importance. School might get difficult at times, but it is very worth it in the long run. Now a days it is important to have a high school diploma and most places ask for at least that in order to work.
I totally agree with what he had to say, he is spreading a positive message to everytone. It is nice to know that our President is considerate and cares enough to try to reach out to the people. Kids should see him as an example. When he was growing up he didn't have much and now he is running the most powerful country in the world. I think everyone is capapble to get to that point if we really try and put 110% into what we do.
