The speech is challenging students to apply themselves and do their best and be responsible. Nothing offensive there. I even appreciate several of his remarks that he will be making to students. Perhaps the president's speech connect with some students and those students accept his challenge and do their best.
In his speech our President will be bringing God into the public schools. I find this interesting that our President can do this but I can't. Maybe I should run for President . . . .
President Obama ends his speech with "God bless you, and God bless America."
I'm glad the White House posted the speech. Read it yourself here
