Those are the battles that we need to fight. Those are the battles that we willingly join. The battles against ignorance and intolerance. Corruption and greed. Poverty and despair. The consequences of war are dire, the sacrifices immeasurable. We may have occasion in our lifetime to once again rise up in defense of our freedom, and pay the wages of war. But we ought not — we will not — travel down that hellish path blindly. Nor should we allow those who would march off and pay the ultimate sacrifice, who would prove the full measure of devotion with their blood, to make such an awful sacrifice in vain.
I will go and watch the speech with my children. But knowing how dishonest people can be, I will also print out the speech that is shown here and take it with me, to see what is added or taken out. We as parents are responsible for the things that our children here and see. I as their parent am responsible to raise my children, not the USA and not the President of the United States. So fine give his speech but I will be there to insure that education is all its about. That is my God given right and responsibility. And I will say one thing about his speech. His facts are not exactly straight. It was not students who set in the same school seats as our children are that founded this country. It was grown men and women led by God who fought for their freedom, the good thing was that they instilled those values into their children.
