The future of our country rests with the next generation. It is imperative that we bring them up with values and integrity. If you read or hear the rest of the speech, Mr. Heck also states that we don't need "more men as millionaire entrepreneurs". He is simply stating that as a generation we need to focus more on our families and not let our careers get in the way of what is most valuable - teaching our children and loving our families.
In my opinion, we certainly don't need anyone to be telling people and in particular, young women who are just about ready to start out on their own in life, who they should or shouldn't be. They needed a speaker who would tell the women and men in attendance that they should aim for whatever they believe they would do well at and what makes them happy in life.
