Lessons from Obama

I am not a FOX fan, but I give credit to Bill O’Reilly for speaking up in last weekend’s Parade Magazine. The article, entitled, “What President Obama Can Teach America’s Kids” was a fair and unbiased commentary on beating the odds.

Obama’s tough childhood, says O’Reilly, can teach all of us, but especially children, that success and stability are not dependent on a fairy tale childhood or the proverbial silver spoon in the mouth rearing. Obama can teach by example how five lessons brought him to where he is: forgiveness (of the father who abandoned him), respect (towards the family that raised him), persistence (no excuses), hard work (not giving up), and faith that in America anything is possible (the greatest lesson of all).

Thanks, Bill. It’s nice to see you off your FOX rant for a change. Try it again sometime
