In case you missed it, here is Obama’s speech to America’s children. Did you watch it? Did your children watch it? Did you watch it with your children?

I felt I needed to follow up from my post on Monday.

I thought the speech was good. Actually it was really good, a message many of our kids need to hear. It was about failure, hard work and taking ownership of our future. Regardless of whether we like it or not, the president of the United States is someone we all respect because of the tradition of the office. Most kids look up to this office. What kid hasn’t dreamed of one day being the leader of the free world?

So, this is a great message for our kids to hear. It’s a message of encouragement from the guy in the job most of our kids dream of being. What did you think?
