This should be the state of the Union

Morehouse College honored Barack Obama, with an honorary degree and then enjoyed a  speech for the ages. Time magazine did a great article on the speech. The president urged the graduates to not make excuses, not to put profit before happiness and to take care of your family.

This speech has to be one of the best ones ever given by this president and this should be his state of the union speech.  Do yourself a favor and read this speech today. Then re read it and replace all references of race with your nationality.

The world is in the midst of an economic downturn and our countries need us to be the best family men and women we can and to be the best patriots we can. How do we do this well I think The president said it best when he said

“So what I ask of you today is the same thing I ask of every graduating class [citizen] I address: use that power for something larger than yourself.

Live up to President Mays’ challenge. Be “sensitive to the wrongs, the sufferings, and the injustices of society.” And be “willing to accept responsibility for correcting [those] ills.””
