لو سألتك أنت امريكى تقولى أيه !!

Hello everyone – how’s everybody doing today? I’m here with students at Wakefield
High School in Arlington, Virginia. And we’ve got students tuning in from all across
America, kindergarten through twelfth grade. I’m glad you all could join us today.
I know that for many of you, today is the first day of school. And for those of you in
kindergarten, or starting middle or high school, it’s your first day in a new school, so it’s
understandable if you’re a little nervous. I imagine there are some seniors out there who
are feeling pretty good right now, with just one more year to go. And no matter what
grade you’re in, some of you are probably wishing it were still summer, and you could’ve
stayed in bed just a little longer this morning.
I know that feeling. When I was young, my family lived in Indonesia for a few years, and
my mother didn’t have the money to send me where all the American kids went to
school. So she decided to teach me extra lessons herself, Monday through Friday – at
4:30 in the morning.
Now I wasn’t too happy about getting up that early. A lot of times, I’d fall asleep right
there at the kitchen table. But whenever I’d complain, my mother would just give me one
of those looks and say, "This is no picnic for me either, buster."
So I know some of you are still adjusting to being back at school. But I’m here today
because I have something important to discuss with you. I’m here because I want to talk
with you about your education and what’s expected of all of you in this new school year.
Now I’ve given a lot of speeches about education. And I’ve talked a lot about
I’ve talked about your teachers’ responsibility for inspiring you, and pushing you to
I’ve talked about your parents’ responsibility for making sure you stay on track, and get
your homework done, and don’t spend every waking hour in front of the TV or with that
I’ve talked a lot about your government’s responsibility for setting high standards,
supporting teachers and principals, and turning around schools that aren’t working where
students aren’t getting the opportunities they deserve.
But at the end of the day, we can have the most dedicated teachers, the most supportive
parents, and the best schools in the world – and none of it will matter unless all of you
fulfill your responsibilities. Unless you show up to those schools; pay attention to those
teachers; listen to your parents, grandparents and other adults; and put in the hard work it
takes to succeed.
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.
Maybe you could be a good writer – maybe even good enough to write a book or articles
in a newspaper – but you might not know it until you write a paper for your English
class. Maybe you could be an innovator or an inventor – maybe even good enough to
come up with the next iPhone or a new medicine or vaccine – but you might not know it
until you do a project for your science class. Maybe you could be a mayor or a Senator or
a Supreme Court Justice, but you might not know that until you join student government
or the debate team.
And no matter what you want to do with your life – I guarantee that you’ll need an
education to do it. You want to be a doctor, or a teacher, or a police officer? You want to
be a nurse or an architect, a lawyer or a member of our military? You’re going to need a
good education for every single one of those careers. You can’t drop out of school and
just drop into a good job. You’ve got to work for it and train for it and learn for it.
And this isn’t just important for your own life and your own future. What you make of
your education will decide nothing less than the future of this country. What you’re
learning in school today will determine whether we as a nation can meet our greatest
challenges in the future
You’ll need the knowledge and problem-solving skills you learn in science and math to
cure diseases like cancer and AIDS, and to develop new energy technologies and protect
our environment. You’ll need the insights and critical thinking skills you gain in history
and social studies to fight poverty and homelessness, crime and discrimination, and make
our nation more fair and more free. You’ll need the creativity and ingenuity you develop
in all your classes to build new companies that will create new jobs and boost our
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.
Now I know it’s not always easy to do well in school. I know a lot of you have challenges
in your lives right now that can make it hard to focus on your schoolwork.
I get it. I know what that’s like. My father left my family when I was two years old, and I
was raised by a single mother who struggled at times to pay the bills and wasn’t always
able to give us things the other kids had. There were times when I missed having a father
in my life. There were times when I was lonely and felt like I didn’t fit in.
So I wasn’t always as focused as I should have been. I did some things I’m not proud of,
and got in more trouble than I should have. And my life could have easily taken a turn for
the worse.
But I was fortunate. I got a lot of second chances and had the opportunity to go to
college, and law school, and follow my dreams. My wife, our First Lady Michelle
Obama, has a similar story. Neither of her parents had gone to college, and they didn’t
have much. But they worked hard, and she worked hard, so that she could go to the best
schools in this country.
Some of you might not have those advantages. Maybe you don’t have adults in your life
who give you the support that you need. Maybe someone in your family has lost their job,
and there’s not enough money to go around. Maybe you live in a neighborhood where you don’t feel safe, or have friends who are pressuring you to do things you know aren’t
But at the end of the day, the circumstances of your life – what you look like, where you
come from, how much money you have, what you’ve got going on at home – that’s no
excuse for neglecting your homework or having a bad attitude. That’s no excuse for
talking back to your teacher, or cutting class, or dropping out of school. That’s no excuse
for not trying.
Where you are right now doesn’t have to determine where you’ll end up. No one’s
written your destiny for you. Here in America, you write your own destiny. You make
your own future.
That’s what young people like you are doing every day, all across America.
Young people like Jazmin Perez, from Roma, Texas. Jazmin didn’t speak English when
she first started school. Hardly anyone in her hometown went to college, and neither of
her parents had gone either. But she worked hard, earned good grades, got a scholarship
to Brown University, and is now in graduate school, studying public health, on her way to
being Dr. Jazmin Perez.
I’m thinking about Andoni Schultz, from Los Altos, California, who’s fought brain
cancer since he was three. He’s endured all sorts of treatments and surgeries, one of
which affected his memory, so it took him much longer – hundreds of extra hours – to do
his schoolwork. But he never fell behind, and he’s headed to college this fall.
And then there’s Shantell Steve, from my hometown of Chicago, Illinois. Even when
bouncing from foster home to foster home in the toughest neighborhoods, she managed to
get a job at a local health center; start a program to keep young people out of gangs; and
she’s on track to graduate high school with honors and go on to college.
Jazmin, Andoni and Shantell aren’t any different from any of you. They faced challenges
in their lives just like you do. But they refused to give up. They chose to take
responsibility for their education and set goals for themselves. And I expect all of you to
do the same.
That’s why today, I’m calling on each of you to set your own goals for your education –
and to do everything you can to meet them. Your goal can be something as simple as
doing all your homework, paying attention in class, or spending time each day reading a
book. Maybe you’ll decide to get involved in an extracurricular activity, or volunteer in
your community. Maybe you’ll decide to stand up for kids who are being teased or
bullied because of who they are or how they look, because you believe, like I do, that all
kids deserve a safe environment to study and learn. Maybe you’ll decide to take better
care of yourself so you can be more ready to learn. And along those lines, I hope you’ll
all wash your hands a lot, and stay home from school when you don’t feel well, so we can
keep people from getting the flu this fall and winter.
Whatever you resolve to do, I want you to commit to it. I want you to really work at it.
I know that sometimes, you get the sense from TV that you can be rich and successful
without any hard work -- that your ticket to success is through rapping or basketball or
being a reality TV star, when chances are, you’re not going to be any of those things.
But the truth is, being successful is hard. You won’t love every subject you study. You
won’t click with every teacher. Not every homework assignment will seem completely
relevant to your life right this minute. And you won’t necessarily succeed at everything
the first time you try. That’s OK. Some of the most successful people in the world are the ones who’ve had the
most failures. JK Rowling’s first Harry Potter book was rejected twelve times before it
was finally published. Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team, and
he lost hundreds of games and missed thousands of shots during his career. But he once
said, "I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."
These people succeeded because they understand that you can’t let your failures define
you – you have to let them teach you. You have to let them show you what to do
differently next time. If you get in trouble, that doesn’t mean you’re a troublemaker, it
means you need to try harder to behave. If you get a bad grade, that doesn’t mean you’re
stupid, it just means you need to spend more time studying.
No one’s born being good at things, you become good at things through hard
work. You’re not a varsity athlete the first time you play a new sport. You don’t hit every
note the first time you sing a song. You’ve got to practice. It’s the same with your
schoolwork. You might have to do a math problem a few times before you get it right, or
read something a few times before you understand it, or do a few drafts of a paper before
it’s good enough to hand in.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it. I do
that every day. Asking for help isn’t a sign of weakness, it’s a sign of strength. It shows
you have the courage to admit when you don’t know something, and to learn something
new. So find an adult you trust – a parent, grandparent or teacher; a coach or counselor –
and ask them to help you stay on track to meet your goals.
And even when you’re struggling, even when you’re discouraged, and you feel like other
people have given up on you – don’t ever give up on yourself. Because when you give up
on yourself, you give up on your country.
The story of America isn’t about people who quit when things got tough. It’s about
people who kept going, who tried harder, who loved their country too much to do
anything less than their best.
It’s the story of students who sat where you sit 250 years ago, and went on to wage a
revolution and found this nation. Students who sat where you sit 75 years ago who
overcame a Depression and won a world war; who fought for civil rights and put a man
on the moon. Students who sat where you sit 20 years ago who founded Google, Twitter
and Facebook and changed the way we communicate with each other.
So today, I want to ask you, what’s your contribution going to be? What problems are
you going to solve? What discoveries will you make? What will a president who comes
here in twenty or fifty or one hundred years say about what all of you did for this
Your families, your teachers, and I are doing everything we can to make sure you have
the education you need to answer these questions. I’m working hard to fix up your
classrooms and get you the books, equipment and computers you need to learn. But
you’ve got to do your part too. So I expect you to get serious this year. I expect you to put
your best effort into everything you do. I expect great things from each of you. So don’t
let us down – don’t let your family or your country or yourself down. Make us all
proud. I know you can do it.
Thank you, God bless you, and God bless America

لكن تقول ايه بقي مالوش حظ معايا

انا لو امريكاني اقول اوباما الله عليه رغم انه انجازاته قليله وشعبيته انخفضت لغايه دلوقتي ومش مقتنع بحكايه نوبل دي اصلا

بس برده خلينا وراه للاخر واهو نتفائل به حبتين

leeno يقول...

بعد الموضوع بتاع رد الجميل جبت الموضوع دة

يا ترى دة من الحظ\الاغبر بتاعنا و لا من سخرية القدر و لا من اييييييييييييييه !!!

مش معقول انا البريك بتاع الشغل خلص و مقتش الخطاب كله فاضلي شوية

بس بجد

it is very inspiring !

طريقة خطابه ملهمة فعلا و قريبة من الطلاب اوووي

احنا حتى لو جم يكلمونا و يقولولنا ادرسوا علشانكم

خلاااص حنعتبرها شعارات رنانة من غير لزمة

اصل مصلحة البلد دي بقت كلمة مطااااااااطة اووووي او حجة و شعار نرفعهم لما نحتاجهم

نمونت حد ... مصلحة البلد
نسجن حد ... مصلحة البلد
نقفل مدرسة .... مصلحة البلد و كدة

المهم في الاخر انت عندك ثقة في اللي بيقلك الكلام

حاسس انه صادق؟ هو دة السؤال

Here i'm يقول...


و الله يا عمنا أنا شايف أننا كان عندنا منه و الله .. بس يالا الله يرحمه

يا أخى العيال طايرة يرئيسهم .. أحنا برضه كنت حتلاقى زحمة و تصقيف بس هنا حيبقوا بيصقفوا و هما مش طايقينه .. أما هناك طايريين بيه

هوا يا خد نوبل لأنجازاته فى أمريكا .. و مش مطلوب منه أكتر من كده ..

Here i'm يقول...

لين ..

الفنانة القديرة سعاد حسنى قالت فى خلى بالك من زوزو .. الكلام اللى يتقال بحماس لازم يتسمع بحماس

كلامه طالع من قلبه .. مش حسه قرفان ولا عايز يخلص ولا يوم رخم و مضظر يروحه كل سنة .. الراجل داخل سعيد و بينط السلالم ..

تفتكرى ربنا ممكن يبعتلنا حد كده .. ولا أحنا مش وش نعمة ؟؟

انا حرة يقول...

والله يابنى انا كنت ناوية اكتب موضوع اسمه التعليم فى بلادى

اوله الفيديو اللى بيقلبلى بطنى كل ما بشوفه اللى هو دا
قال تعليم ازهرى قال!

و اخره المقالة اللى بتوجعلى قلبى على الناس اللى بتفكر و مصير افكارها فى اقرب مقلب زبالة..اللى هى دى

فى الاخر قررت اريح دماغى عشان بصراحة مش طالبة وجع قلب..بين مدارس بيلاقوا فيها تعابين لمدارس فى المدافن و مقالب الزبالة..و لسه محدش فاهم ان التعليم هو الاساس..لو ما اتعدلش يبقى انتهينا و اللى كان كان

الغريبة بقى ان اوباما لا اتكلم عن سنة سادسة لا جاب سيرة نظام الثانوية العامة الجديد ولا هاجم النقاب ولا الشورت الاحمر..ولا قال انه هيغير حاجة..كل اللى عمله انه حمس العيال كانه بيقولهم ان اللى هيشتغل بجد انا شغلتى انى اضمنله مستقبله!

اما بقى الهام و تشجيع و تحفيز فالحاجات دى هنااااك مش هنا

Here i'm يقول...

انا حرة ..

لما حكتيلى على الفيديو الاولانى أفتكرتك بتأفورى .. بس بجد مش معقول .. عميدة معهد ازهر مش عارفة أيات الحجاب .. يا نهار أسود .. على رأى خيرى .. انا أعرف حافظ مش فاهم .. مشوفتش لا حافظ ولا فاهم

و الله يا بنتى اول ما شوفت المصرى اليوم .. قولت سليمان جوده .. الراجل زوره اتنبح فى موضوع التعليم دا .. كل يوم تعليم

مفيش فايدة يا حاجة :(

Jannah يقول...

انا من يومين حلمت انه أوباما عندنا في الفصل و عطاني مجسم صغير لواحد بيلعب كرة السلة معموا بطريقة حلوة جدا

ان اي حد لو جه كلمك من اللي عندنا حتحس انه بيقول شعارات رنانة في الهوا ! و بسسس و حتلاقي تاني يوم ميية افيييه اتقال على كلامه و لا ايه؟؟؟

لغيرهم كمان
