School bells are ringing, and students are entering various schools. They will be greeted by eager teachers ready, able and willing to greet the brightest students ever to enter classroom doors.
Students have become high-tech oriented from their smart phones, television viewing and access to information from many sources.
In the old days we entered school with a pencil, notebook and were given our books to read. Students today go way beyond where many of us started or even finished our education.
America requires all students to attend school, contrary to Latin American countries where school is optional. This single fact of requiring students to learn basic education has kept America at the forefront of world leadership.
We have the finest colleges and universities in the world and students seek to study in America. They come here because of our intellectual freedom and ingenuity of our culture.
Americans have good common sense instilled in us by our forefathers and mothers. The opportunity to succeed and prosper requires hard work, the lubricant for success in any job or occupation.
We see amazing success stories every day of immigrants who have arrived in this nation as youngsters with nothing and have become wealthy and successful.
Free enterprise has given all who seek to find an occupation or profession for success.
The future will be challenging. Massive change is upon us and iconic brands of the past may not be the industrial leaders of the future.
Advances in medicine, space travel, health care, what we eat and drink, artificial food and electric cars, to just name a few new concepts that have arrived in our lives and lifestyles.
While Washington rules the land, American people are forging ahead, gaining education and enjoying the multiple opportunities for those who wish to advance themselves and their families.
We should be thankful that we live in such a blessed country and we need to value our history, not be ashamed of our past and dream and envision a better world where we have conquered disease, ended warfare and there is food on the table for all.
