If I am elected President of these United States, I will work with all my energy and soul to restore that America, to lift our eyes to a better future. That future is our destiny. That future is out there. It is waiting for us. Our children deserve it, our nation depends upon it, the peace and freedom of the world require it.

We are now at a point where we must educate our children in what no one knew yesterday, and prepare our schools for what no one knows yet.
