A Great Commencement Speech

C-Span has been wonderful tonight. They broadcast the Libertarian Party’s Convention and now they’re showing interesting commencement speeches from around the country.

They just finished showing Margaret Edson’s and I think it’s simply a must for teachers and students alike. It meant a whole lot to me. One of the two best commencement speeches I’ve ever heard or read. Please, if you have 20 minutes, give it a watch or a read.
