President Obama gave a rockin' speech to the youth of America today. I recommend watching it.

I don't always agree with Obama's political views and decisions, but I would say this speech is very timely and very very applicable to the lives of the teenagers who come into my classroom every day.

Many of them were moved and motivated by it...and so was I.


  1. Thank you so much for this post... I have been going crazy listening to all these crazys calling Obama the next Hitler trying to brain-wash our youth!

  2. AWESOME!!! I am posting it on my blog too.

  3. I listened to this on the radio and I quite liked it. Especially that part where he said, "you probably aren't going to be a rap star or a basketball player," being successful is hard, it takes hard work.

  4. It's a park in Williamsville right behind Main street. We can take you sometime on a Sunday afternoon if you would dare to venture out with the crazy Gardners. Thayne knows more specifics than I do (he drove). I think it's called Glen Park.


I love hearing from you!! Thanks for the comment!
