The responsibility you have to yourself, freetude idea 17, freedom ideas

“And that’s what I want to focus on today: the responsibility each of you has for your education. I want to start with the responsibility you have to yourself.
Every single one of you has something you’re good at. Every single one of you has something to offer. And you have a responsibility to yourself to discover what that is. That’s the opportunity an education can provide. [...]
We need every single one of you to develop your talents, skills and intellect so you can help solve our most difficult problems. If you don’t do that – if you quit on school – you’re not just quitting on yourself, you’re quitting on your country.”
President Obama

Nothing to add. Not one single word.

Idea of the day: Replace all school vending machines with green machines (healthy snacks only, dry fruits, almonds, peanuts), replace all soda vending machines with natural juice machines or coconut water (no added sugar), and replace all the speech critics with one single word: thanks.
