What strikes you about it?

Here's a Wordle: Obama School Speech Top 25 wordsWORDLE of the top 25 words he will use.

Ans (thanks to JudyG) a link to to a Wordle: Remarks to Students  George Bush 1991-10-01 WORDLE of Bush's 1991 speech to students.

At first, I thought "maybe" should not appears so often in either speech, but then I realized that "maybe" was not being used in a tentative sense, but rather as a way to highlight opportunities and possibilities. As we start a new school year, let's hope that there are students and teachers who are further inspired to support each other, to engage in lively, civic debate, and to pursue their dreams and passions.
