Erica Goldson's Inspiring Valedictorian Speech

From Erica Goldson's excellent 2010 valedictorian speech at Coxsackie-Athens High School:
We are not enlivened by an educational system that clandestinely sets us up for jobs that could be automated, for work that need not be done, for enslavement without fervency for meaningful achievement. We have no choices in life when money is our motivational force. Our motivational force ought to be passion, but this is lost from the moment we step into a system that trains us, rather than inspires us.
