To the editor:
Every child needs an education, and every single one of us needs to develop our talents, skills and intellect so we can help solve our most difficult problems.
Plus whatever we resolve to do, we need to commit to it.
The story of America isn’t about people who quit when things got tough.
It’s about people who kept going, who tried harder, who loved their country too much to do anything less than their best.
I just wanted to repeat some of these phrases from President Obama’s speech today.
The reason for this is because not all of the students that wanted to see the speech were given the opportunity to.
I go to Estill County High School and I was one of the very few people that even got to see the speech.
I would like to thank Principal Click for his assistance in helping me get the chance to watch it.
I spoke with many students who said President Obama’s speech wasn’t shown in the classrooms, and I talked to some who were denied permission to go to another classroom that was showing it.
During his speech President Obama never once said anything political or one sided at all.
All he did was encourage the youth to make goals and to stay in school.
There is not one student in my school, this state, or this nation that didn’t need to hear that.
If the students had a choice not to watch it would be one thing but like I said earlier many didn’t get that choice.
I just don’t think that that is right, and I felt that something needed to be said about it.
