President Obama speaks to the nation's children

Tonight, I watched the speech with my kids.  The oldest two listened to the President’s words with quiet attention.  When it was over, I asked them what they thought.  They were very positive and recalled pieces that were relevant to the challenges they’ve faced in school.  “Work hard,” “Don’t give up,” “Failure can teach me to succeed,” and “Obey your teacher” are just some of the parts that stood out to them.  I saw a lot of smiles as I watched them listen to the President talk directly to them.  It was definitely a teachable moment and one that soon won’t quickly be forgotten.
