well, alright then February 25th, 2009
This sign on Pierce St NE (a few blocks north of Union Station) is a little depressing, but at least it’s not giving anyone a false sense of hope. Did everyone watch Obama’s speech last night? I thought the most rousing part was this:
…It is our responsibility as lawmakers and educators to make this system work. But it is the responsibility of every citizen to participate in it. And so tonight, I ask every American to commit to at least one year or more of higher education or career training. This can be community college or a four-year school; vocational training or an apprenticeship. But whatever the training may be, every American will need to get more than a high school diploma. And dropping out of high school is no longer an option. It’s not just quitting on yourself, it’s quitting on your country – and this country needs and values the talents of every American. That is why we will provide the support necessary for you to complete college and meet a new goal: by 2020, America will once again have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world.
-Barack Obama, Feb 24th, 2009
It’s not Republican or Democrat, it’s just message to people to get up and do something to better themselves, and ultimately their country.
