In his speech to the Class of 2013, the president encouraged the "Morehouse men" to "widen your circle of concern, to care about justice for everybody."

He also reminded them that being a real man means taking care of one's children, saying that on his deathbed, he won't be thinking about his accomplishments as president, but time spent with wife Michelle and daughters Sasha and Malia.
