you are a citizen of this world

Graduation season is here and with that comes the endless number of commencement speeches. Something that I really love doing is watching the speeches given at different colleges. I've had so many favorites over the years and am now adding this one to the list.

Aaron Sorkin was the commencement speaker at my {and his!} alma mater's commencement ceremony this past Sunday. I may be a bit biased, but in my opinion it was a phenomenal speech and much better than the one given during my graduation ceremony.

A quote from the speech: "And make no mistake about it, you are dumb. You're a group of incredibly well-educated dumb people."

What's not to love?

Congratulations to all the 2012 graduates! Go get 'em!

  1. That's so cool that Aaron Sorkin spoke at your alma mater! I love that quote from his speech. Hopefully someone great speaks for my graduation ceremony, but that's still two years down the road.
