"What I regret most in my life are failures of kindness. "
Oh, the well written graduation speech. There seems to be nothing better. It has become a custom for, as stated by George Saunders, "Some old fart, his best years behind him, who, over the course of his life, has made a series of dreadful mistakes (that would be me), gives heartfelt advice to a group of shining, energetic young people, with all of their best years ahead of them (that would be you)." Being confronted with an elder with advice to give, makes you aware of your life and the choices you've made.
This is a speech worth sharing.
