    WHAT A BEAUTIFUL DAY THIS HAS BEEN WATCHING THE PRESIDENT WITH THESE AWESOME STUDENTS. THANK YOU FOR THE JOURNEY. THE MEDIA BEGAN TO COVER SOME OF IT AFTER THE FACT…BUT, I WISH EVERYTHING I HAD SEEN TODAY WAS SHOWN TO EVERYONE ACROSS AMERICA! THERE WOULD BE LOTS OF SMILES ACROSS THIS COUNTRY IF THEY HAD SEEN THIS!

      Very true Sue. I often wish more people were watching and following this extraordinary President as closely as we on TOD do. If people paid attention they could not help but be impressed.

    I agree, iy was a Great Commencement, and the Staff and the Students were ever so thankful for having our President as their Guest Speaker. You could just feel their Appreciation. Yep It was a Great Day for them and probably for us as well 🙂

    I cry every time I see those girls crying. That has to be a lot of emotion spilling over. First of all – you’re graduating, then to have the greatest man in your lifetime standing in front of you and talking to you, then he comes over to ask your name and shake your hand. My OH My! Thanks so much Chipsticks for helping your TOD family share in this joy! You’re AWESOME!

    Thanks Chips. I am not ashamed to say I got choked up too. Their excitement was so palpable and the Prez was fabulous as usual, what an inspiration the the 1st Couple are. I find the kids inspirational too, regardless of all the hurdles they had to go through, they made it.

    IF MORE PEOPLE WATCHED…PERHAPS THEY WOULD UNDERSTAND WHAT THE GENUINE PRIORITIES SHOULD BE IN THIS COUNTRY. WE ARE SOOOOOOO MATERIALISTIC…THE REAL GOLD…THE REAL WEALTH…THE RESULTING REAL JOY IS IN OUR LORD…OUR FAMILY…THE FUTURE OF OUR CHILDREN…THAT’S WHAT TRUE PROSPERITY IS. THE PRESIDENT KNOWS THIS…THAT’S WHY HE IS TOTALLY INVESTED IN HIS FAMILY!
