A Speech for All Ages

Let me be the first to congratulate President Obama on his non-political speech to the schoolchildren. His encouraging them to stay in school and study hard is solid advice. His pointing out the importance of an education will certainly motivate the students to finish school and perhaps go to college. It’s also motivational that he points out if he can become president who knows what they can accomplish. Regardless of one’s color or standing in life, with an education there are no limits to what one can do. Respect and listen to your teachers who are there to challenge and educate you. Take advantage of the extra curricular activities your school offers but not to the detriment of your studies.

I fully expect the President to give a fine speech on Tuesday.
