I saw but never noticed that a college point is right to
'Be all that you can be' posters
At the time Cole was growing up, ‘Be all you can be’ was the slogan for the U.S. Army — in fact this was their slogan for over 20 years.
Cole pronounces this line in a peculiar way. It can also be heard as: “…a college point is right to be all that you can be ‘posed to.”
Once Cole attended college he realized that the purpose of college isn’t getting wasted or training for a profession— it’s to learn to be all you can be.
Children raised in less privileged communities are often overlooked by society and lose hope of ever making it in life. They turn to selling drugs and getting caught up in the same loop of problems as so many other people who are from these areas.
