President Obama's inaugural speech addressed the challenges we face as a nation of collective individuals. Among the content from the speech was this statement: “We understand that outworn programs are inadequate to the needs of our time. We must harness new ideas and technology to remake our government, revamp our tax code, reform our schools, and empower our citizens with the skills they need to work harder, learn more, and reach higher.”
