ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A few technical glitches interrupted the President's speech at an Albany school.

Because of overwhelming response as people logged on to view the speech on the internet, the video paused multiple times while these Albany High students tried to watch it.

Eventually they were able to listen to the president as he told them to write their own futures and mark their own destinies.

He said life isn't just a reality TV show- A comment that jumpstarted a discussion among the students.   "A real reality is that all of you can graduate from this school with honors and go to college. That's a real reality," said Albany High Government Teacher Will Thomas.

"I really liked the speech because I feel like it inspired me because he said something about his parents didn't go to college, but that don't have no reason with you not going to go to college," said Jontavious Morris a student at Albany High School. "What you do is you push yourself. So you try and do everything to the best of your ability so you can be a successful person."  

Teacher Will Thomas also encouraged students to challenge one another and to graduate high school and continue to college.
