It's about time a President inspires children to be the best they can be & teach them accountability. Shame on parents that want to ban him!

review by . September 08, 2009
If there's one thing that people can agree on, it's that Barack Obama knows how to deliver good speeches.  When we first got wind that he was going to be giving a speech on Septermber 8, 2009 (the day most kids go back to school--some were already in school a couple of weeks) there were several people flipping out.  Now, some thought, Obama is going to try and brain wash our children and push forward his liberal agenda.  Well, not really.  This would hardly be the first time …

About this topic


Excerpts from his speech are below:
(At) the end of the day, the circumstances of your life – what you look like, where you come from, how much money you have, what you’ve got going on at home – that’s no excuse for neglecting your homework or having a bad attitude. That’s no excuse for talking back to your teacher, or cutting class, or dropping out of school. That’s no excuse for not trying. Where you are right now doesn’t have to determine where you’ll end up. No one’s written your destiny for you. Here in America, you write your own destiny. You make your own future ...

That’s why today, I’m calling on each of you to set your own goals for your education – and to do everything you can to meet them. Your goal can be something as simple as doing all your homework, paying attention in class, or spending time each day reading a book. Maybe you’ll decide to get involved in an extracurricular activity, or volunteer in your community. Maybe you’ll decide to stand up for kids who are being teased or bullied because of who they are or how they look, because you believe, like I do, that all kids deserve a safe environment ...
