I just caught the state of the union address on youtube since I didn't get the chance to watch it last night. I can't remember ever looking for any other politician's speech online or actually being so excited to listen to my president before. I swear everytime I see Obama, I just smile. As expected, most of the speech was on the economy but one thing that stood out to me was his stand on education:
"So tonight I ask every American to commit to at least one year or more of higher education or career training. This can be a community college or a four-year school, vocational training or an apprenticeship. But whatever the training may be, every American will need to get more than a high school diploma.
And dropping out of high school is no longer an option. It's not just quitting on yourself; it's quitting on your country. And this country needs and values the talents of every American."
I swear the part in bold almost drove me to tears. So true Mr President, so true. Someborri shout GOBAMA! (Adeboye stylee)
