During today’s speech by President Obama, a news reporter from NBC17 came to my son’s school to interview students and teachers for their reactions to the speech. My son is featured in the below video and it also aired on the 6:00 and 11:00 news.
From the MyNC.com site run by NBC17:
At Culbreth Middle School in Chapel Hill, a class of 6th graders sat quietly and watched the President’s speech from their desks.
Peter Cohen, 6th grader, said he listened carefully to what the President had to say.
“I think one of the things he really emphasized was that you make your own future and so if you want to be a doctor or lawyer, you have to make that happen. You can’t depend on other people your entire life ,” said Cohen.
