The Class of 2020 Speeches

This morning, my mentor shared a link to Forbes Best Commencement Speeches of 2020. The article featured the 44th US President Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Tim Cook, LeBron James, and others. The lineup is pretty heavy and packed with rich content.

The one that resonates to me the most now is from LeBron James.

“Stay close to home… Pursue every ambition, go as far as you can possibly dream and be the first generation to embrace a new responsibility, a responsibility to rebuild your community.”

Going back to our roots, our foundation and help in rebuilding takes a lot of courage and strength. Familiar places is not easy to go back to especially for someone who was desperate to get out and move on. There is something about a painful past that others don’t see. Be brave, anyway and you’ll see.

Every one agrees that life is fleeting. And that life is change. It never stays the same. I am a believer of choice, of opportunities embraced and lost, I dictate what happens to me. This makes me hopeful, makes me dream, gives me courage and clears my realm. And I hope to share how change affects my life.
