I just don’t get it. Why is it such a horrible thing for the President of the United States to encourage students to stay in school, do their best and set goals? Is it any different than Reagan promoting “Just Say No to Drugs”? Or Barbara Bush promoting reading?
Obama isn’t my favorite but he’s still the President and he’s still a role model. I think our kids need plenty of adults that they can look to for encouragement and support. I may not agree with everything that Obama is doing in the White House but I can stand behind him on this…. Our kids need a good education. They need to learn to set and achieve goals.
I will be watching his speech. I will be letting my children watch his speech. I want to teach my kids to listen fairly and then hold up what they hear next to Scripture. If it’s in line – fantastic. If it’s not in line with what they believe then they need to learn what to do with that too.
What are your thoughts? Will you be watching his speech? Will your children?
