President Obama’s Speech To Kids As They Return To School

There’s been a lot of controversy about the speech that President Obama is giving to school children tomorrow.

There are many people up in arms. Some parents are pulling their kids out of school so they don’t see or hear the speech, and some schools are refusing to show it.

Has everyone lost their minds? What do they think the President is going to say to our children?

President Obama is clearly a champion of giving kids a good education and offering them a future. After reading the letter that he openly wrote to his daughters earlier this year in Parade Magazine, I can only imagine that he will be a cheerleader for our kids to study hard and stay in school so that they can be anything they want to be. Last time I checked there was nothing wrong with that.

Could these parents and schools be anti-education? Could they be denying our kids a future? Or is it a partisan issue?

No matter who you voted for, no matter what race you are — this is the President of the United States and he cares about our kids’ education!

It behooves every parent to send their kids to school tomorrow and let them hear the speech, and it behooves every school to air the speech.

Frankly, I cannot think of anything more inspiring than the President of the United States telling kids to study hard and stay in school so that they can be whatever they want to be in life!

It certainly would have inspired me when I was a kid!
