On the 8 of September, 2009 Barack Obama made a very wonderful speech. The Back To School Event speech was very well said and it opened my eyes. The speech was made in Wakefield High School in Arlington, Virginia. He spoke about ways to find the right education and what goals you have to accomplish to get there. He mentioned that for some people might be easier then others, for example some might be guided the right direction and because of that they have a bigger chance in making the right decisions and many others might not have that right person in life helping them reach the right education and that may lead into harder paths in life.
One point he made in the Back to School Event was when he spoke about ways to find out what I am really good at.For example he said everybody is good at something its just our goal to find what we are really good at. Some ways which he spoke about were joining programs and trying out many different activities will help me find that one thing I am gifted in. This is something I am going to take into consideration and follow throughout the rest of my life.
Another great point he made that touched me was when he spoke about success. He mentions how life on TV can seem so simple and easy but the truth is life can be hard and we have to try hard to reach our success but the harder we try and fight to reach that success the easier we will make it for us to reach that success. It also means not to give up just cause of failure, Our failure teaches us to do better and try harder this will help us and show us what to do differently next time.
These are all the reason why I think this is a very good speech. It has helped me in life and has taught me that I shouldn't be scared to fail and never give up on my self. Just like our country never gave up on us.
