Students in South Florida who saw the president speak yesterday were “inspired” by him.

At Miami Beach Senior High, the teenagers in Ken Spiegelman’s law studies class were eager to hear Obama’s noontime address to students. They grew quiet as their teacher dimmed the lights and projected the president’s image onto the smart board.
”He’s so awesome,” one girl whispered after Obama took the stage.
