I´m here with students at wakefield hight school to Virginia and we have students ... from all across America and Canada to ... I give a lots speachs about education and I talked about responsability I talked abaut teachers responsability for experience studing and boost the learn I talk about your parents responsability for making sure you stay------- and you make your homework don´t spend every waking hour in tv with the--- i talk about your goverment responsability for----high standers and supporting teachers and principales¿? turning around the schools, there are working where students are getting the opportunities ------- but at the end of the day we got the most educated teachers the most supporting parents, the best schools in the world and --- we make a difference --------- all of you for feel your responsabilities and less usual to those schools and less you pay attention to those teachers and less you listen to your parents and grandparents and another adult and put in my heart work, it takes to succeed the responasability each of ----- or your education every single one of you has something that you are good at every single one of you has something to offer you are the responsability of yourself to discover what that is that´s the oportunity and education can pro--- when you make your education will decide nothing less than the future of this country the future of america depends on you when you are learning on the school today whether we as nation can be are greatest challenges in the future you´ll need the ----- problems solving skills you´re learning science and maths ---- like and make our nation more fair and more free you need the creativity and xxx you develop in all your classes to build new companys and create new jobs to boost our economy we need every single one of you to develop your talents your skills and your intellect so you can help us all fox of almost difficult problems if you don't do that if you quit on school you aren't just quitting on yourself you are quitting on your country i know it's not always easy to do well on school i know all of you have challenges in your life right now they can make it hard to focus on your cours i get it i know what it's like my father left my family when i was two years old and i was raised by a single mum who had a work and X the times to pay the bills she wasn't always able to give us the things that other kids had there were times when i missed to have a father in my life there were times when i was lonely so i was know is a focus cause i should is better than school and i did some things that are not ... but i've got more travel that i should it in my life could be easy taking a turn for the worst but i was lucky i´ve got a lot of second changes and i had the oportunity to go in college in a high school and i follow my dreams my wife for first ladie Michell Obama she had the same history neither her parents had gone a college But at the end of the day, the circumstances of your life what you look like, where you come from, how much money or when do you have to going on at home nothing of there its an excuse for don't neglecting your homework or having a bad actitude at school. that's not an excuse for talking bad to your teacher, cuting class or drop out on school. there is not an excuse for not try it. but you are right now... allows you to learn something new so find an adult that you trust a parent, a grandparent, or a teacher a coach or a counciler and ask them to help you stay on track to meet your goals And even when you´re straggle, even when you´re discouraged and you feel like other people have given up on you, don´t ever give up on your self. Because when you give up on your self, you give up on your country. The story of America isn´t about people who quit when things got ¿tuff?. It´s about people who kept going, who try harder, who love their country too much to do anything less than thier best the story of studens who sat where you sit 250 years ago. and went on .... revolution .... and they founded this nation. Young people, students who sat where you sit 75 years ago. who overcame ¿at? the pression and won the ... world war who figth for civil rights and put the man on the moon. Students who sat where you sit 20 years ago who founded google and twitter, and facebook and changed the way we communicate with each other. So today I wanna ask all of you What´s your contributtion gonna be? what problems are you gonna solve? what dicoveries will you make? what will a president who comes here in 20 or 50 or 100 years say about what all you did for this country? And your families, your teachers and I are doing everything we can to make sure you have the education you need to answer these questions I´m woking hard to fix up your classrooms, and get you the books and the ¿equipament? the computers you need to learn But you gotta do your part too so I expect all of you to get serious this year I expect you to put your best effort in everything you do. I expect great thigs from each of you So don´t let us down Don´t let your family down, or your contry down, most of all don´t let your self down. Make us all proud. Thank you very much every body God bless you, god bless America. Thank you.
