The President's Tuesday Speech

You can read the full text of The President's speech by clicking here. I wonder if those who were/are afraid of the speech affecting their children were worried about this:
  • Whatever you resolve to do, I want you to commit to it. I want you to really work at it.
  • Every single one of you has something you’re good at. Every single one of you has something to offer. And you have a responsibility to yourself to discover what that is. That’s the opportunity an education can provide.
  • But 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.
  • No one’s born being good at things, you become good at things through hard work.
