Be Vigilant But Not Afraid

Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States of America, ended his second—and final—term in office on January 20th, 2017.
For eight years, President Obama, along with then-First Lady Michelle Obama, worked to define a new America; a better nation: one that was more inclusive, prosperous and forward-looking than previous administrations. They emphasized the importance of an educated and engaged population, and achieved much in their time in leadership. But much work remains to be done.
Collected herein are the Obama’s final speeches as the nation’s leaders, reminding Americans of the grace, intellect and moral courage with which they guided the country through two terms in the White House. Ultimately, Be Vigilant, But Not Afraid is simply a reflection of what it means to be in civil service, with the goal of serving the interests of the people.

    Because let’s be honest, if we’re always shining the spotlight on professional athletes or recording artists or Hollywood celebrities, if those are the only achievements we celebrate, then why would we ever think kids would see college as a priority?

    each one of us need to try to heed the advice of a great character in American fiction, Atticus Finch, who said, “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view, until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.”

    So that’s what we mean when we say America is exceptional. Not that our nation has been flawless from the start, but that we have shown the capacity to change and make life better for those who follow.
