Obama’s speech was moving and I can’t express how wonderful it was. Many have spoken about his emphasis on what we still have to do, to accomplish and I can’t agree with it more. I’m leaving my college unsure of my future and my career path and how I will even financially support myself, but I can take Obama’s words to heart:
“That is the great American story: young people just like you, following their passions, determined to meet the times on their own terms. They weren’t doing it for the money. Their titles weren’t fancy – ex-slave, minister, student, citizen. But they changed the course of history – and so can you.” – Barack Obama
I may be cheesy right now, but it really was an inspirational and moving speech.
