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.

    So I want our young people to continue to learn and practice those values with pride. You see, our glorious diversity—our diversities of faiths and colors and creeds—that is not a threat to who we are. It makes us who we are.

    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?

    In fact, that’s why people first came to this country: to worship freely.
