Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It’s what makes America great.

What an effective message from President Barack Obama! At once it appreciates and acknowledges the talents of Ahmed Mohamed and forcefully rejects any questions about safety by inviting him to bring his clock to the White House. He doesn’t say a word about the teacher who used “abundant of caution” in getting Mohamed arrested. I do not want to be in her shoes. The loss is of the school, as we read that Ahmed is looking for another school.
