Our optimistic president is outspoken. America don’t be sad. The president isn’t calling you stupid, or slow. Exceptional learners are different learners. Yes, we have challenges. Having lived through the lessons of Iraq and Afghanistan and, for those who can remember, Vietnam, we are having trouble with the question: Syria!?

We considered ourselves “people’s people” able to “just get along” with anyone, yet somehow we are being taken to diplomacy school by the former Soviet Union and Iran. Iran?
Even on the right, we are frustratingly exceptional and perhpahs, behind? As the bigoted American right spit their venom, how the gays are destroying marriage, they are pussycats compared to the President of Gambia who has called homosexuality the “top global threat.”
America, your president is not criticizing you, he is encouraging you! Exceptional learners are entitled to all of the rights, all of the hopes, all of the dreams of their higher functioning fellow world citizens.
So, dare to hope, dare to dream, and please, try to pay attention. Just in case you are aware that sometimes both gifted and children with certain disabilities are considered exceptional students. Especially in Florida. Do not despair. Believe in compliments. Anonymous compliments.
