On Monday, President Barack Obama gave the commencement speech for Joplin High School's class of 2012. Just a snip of his words: "But you are from Joplin. And you are from America. No matter how tough times get, you will be tougher. No matter what life throws at you, you will be ready. You will not be defined by the difficulties you face, but how you respond - with strength, and grace, and a commitment to others."

The president's speech came a day before the anniversary of the tornado that tore through the town, killing 161 people.
