What you see here is a word cloud, created in Wordle.net of the 50 words President Obama used the most in the remarks prepared for his chat with school children tomorrow. Here’s a link to the text of the prepared remarks. (The cloud image links to details of how it was made.)

Here’s one message from the speech that resonated with me:
