I’m writing this with appreciation to President Barack Obama’s state of the union speech.
I was grateful to hear him address key issues including poverty, middle-class concerns and gun control.
I was pleased when he addressed the Wisconsin Sikh Temple Tragedy, as this was a devastating incident. His recognition of the policeman who was wounded reflects efforts towards ending gun violence. The Sikh community should be proud of his speech, as he denounced this tragic event.
I believe this is one of the first times the president puts forward his social agenda and clearly intends on focusing on the middle-class folks. His efforts are needed more than ever, as the people’s voice will only become stronger and louder.
I believe his focus on the key issues is one to be taken as an example for our leading government.
