President Obama gave a moving speech at The NAACP Annual Convention.
“We’ve got to say to our children, Yes, if you’re African-American, the odds of growing up amid crime and gangs are higher. Yes, if you live in a poor neighborhood, you will face challenges that someone in a wealthy suburb does not have to face. That’s not a reason to get bad grades, that’s not a reason to cut class, that’s not a reason to give up on your education and drop out of school. No one has written your destiny for you. Your destiny is in your hands – and don’t you forget that.”
“No excuses. No excuses,You get that education. All those hardships will just make you stronger, better able to compete. Yes, we can.”
Like the Greek philospher Epictetus said, “Only the educated are FREE”!!! Times a wasting people.
