Since its the time of month when many young people will soon graduate from college, I was wondering what the best advice you heard at your graduation from the speaker or from friends or family. My graduate speaker was disappointing. He was a very rich donor to the school, whose speech I remember nothing today.
Isn't it a shame when that happens? Doesn't make you feel predisposed to heading out into the real world, when the real world can't say anything worth holding on to. We had the head of the NAACP (many years ago). I'm not prejudiced in any way, but this man simply recited the history of the organization. Spent the whole time with chronology I could have read in a book. No enlightenment, no inspiration. Just facts. What do speakers THINK grads want to hear? Something to help them move on, move forward. Something to take all that education they've amassed, and shape it. Sigh.
