And tell me again exactly how this speech...

Click the link and read the speech that the President is giving to schoolchildren tomorrow…

… is political?

 

Is cult of personality?


These people succeeded because they understand that you can’t let your failures define you – you have to let them teach you. You have to let them show you what to do differently next time. If you get in trouble, that doesn’t mean you’re a troublemaker, it means you need to try harder to behave. If you get a bad grade, that doesn’t mean you’re stupid, it just means you need to spend more time studying. 

 

IDK about you but I read it, and it seemed pretty motivating to me.

 

In fact, it was, well, Presidential.

 

-t.
