UPDATE: Video of the President’s speech to school children is available here. I thought it was an incredible speech, and I agree with Nancy that students who got to see it live were fortunate to participate in an event that probably made them feel more connected to the President and his amazing life story. This was also the most social-work-friendly Presidential speech I have ever heard. Between inspiring stories of foster children succeeding academically, to very personal messages of the difficulties of education, to reminders to wash your hands, and a pre-speech reminder to kids about not putting anything bad on Facebook — this national pep talk had it all!
