“The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie--deliberate, contrived and dishonest--but the myth--persistent, persuasive and unrealistic. Too often we hold fast to the cliches of our forebears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought. [Commencement Address at Yale University, June 11 1962]” ― John F. Kennedy

Great evening at Sing, Sing prison, where Mercy College graduated more than 25 students. Our graduates and their families were beyond proud. Whoopi Goldberg gave a great commencement address and was kind and patient about having photos taken with each of the graduates who wanted one. This was the event I looked forward to most in my early days here at Mercy College, and I was not disappointed. I only regret that Lee could not go with me because she was not feeling well. I highly recommend watching the HBO special about Mercy College and Hudson Link (the charitable organization overseeing the program) called "The University of Sing Sing."

OPRAH WINFREY HEADLINES T. D. JAKES' 'MEGAFEST' TODAY by Dr. Jim Denison Denison Forum on Truth and Culture Oprah Winfrey speaks at 9 AM today in Dallas as part of T. D. Jakes' "Megafest." Joel and Victoria Osteen, pastors of Lakewood Church in Houston, will speak tomorrow afternoon. More than 100,000 people will attend the three-day conference, which is expected to bring in $41 million to the city. Bishop Jakes launched MegaFest in Atlanta 11 years ago; it drew 560,000 people and made an economic impact of $125 million. The event was held in Atlanta in 2005 and 2006, and in South Africa in 2008. Bishop Jakes, Pastor Osteen, and Oprah Winfrey have all been linked to the "prosperity gospel." New York Times columnist Ross Douthat includes the "God-within" theology of Winfrey and what he calls the "pray and grow rich" theology of Osteen in his Bad Religion: How We Became a Nation of Heretics. He accuses Osteen of "the refashioning of Christianity to suit an age of abundance . . . in a marriage of God a ...

Complete text is found in Public Papers, item The ceremonies began earlier than expected, so the network cameras missed the first half of the President's prefatory remarks.

The President also announces that he, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev, and British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan have agreed to hold discussions concerning a comprehensive nuclear test ban treaty.

Paul Hawken's Commencement Address to the Class of 2009 University of Portland, May 3rd, 2009 “When I was invited to give this speech, I was asked if I could give a simple short talk that was ‘direct, naked, taut, honest, passionate, lean, shivering, startling, and graceful.’ No pressure there. Let's begin with the startling part. Class of 2009: you are going to have to figure out what it means to be a human being on earth at a time when every living system is declining, and the rate of decline is accelerating. Kind of a mind-boggling situation... but not one peer-reviewed paper published in the last thirty years can refute that statement. Basically, civilization needs a new operating system, you are the programmers, and we need it within a few decades. This planet came with a set of instructions, but we seem to have misplaced them. Important rules like don't poison the water, soil, or air, don't let the earth get overcrowded, and don't touch the thermostat have been broken. Buckminster Fuller said ...

“Don’t be gloomy. Do not dwell on unkind things. Stop seeking out the storms and enjoy more fully the sunlight. Even if you are not happy, put a smile on your face. ‘Accentuate the positive.’ Look a little deeper for the good. Go forward in life with a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face, with great and strong purpose in your heart. Love life.” -Gordon B. Hinckley, (Commencement Address at BYU - Hawaii, "Church News," 3 July 1983, p. 10). May we "more fully" enjoy the sunlight today and not "seek" out the storm. Let us enjoy the moments afforded to us this day, and make the most of all that we have in our blessed lives. If you look for a reason to complain, you can always find it. It is a weak person who cannot enjoy the sunshine because it rained yesterday. Let us be happy, let us enjoy the sunshine, let us enjoy the beauty that has been given us, and our ability to make shelter for a storm should be have the need.

Please take a few minutes to read this text of the Commencement Address given recently by award-winning journalist Roxana Saberi at her Alma Mater, Concordia College. Originally she planned to give the Commencement Address in 2009, however her arrest and several months of imprisonment by the government of Iran while a correspondent there derailed those plans and, needless to say, changed her life significantly. I can't do justice to her whole story here (please look up her book "Between Two Worlds" for further detail) but wanted to share this address. Personally I'm amazed and inspired at the way the address weaves together some of the strongest wisdom from the Bible, the Baha'i Teachings, and Viktor Frankl, which incidentally are three of my biggest sources of inspiration in life as well. Thank you again for sharing your story, Roxana Saberi. "...I was also reminded of the power of attitude by a book that one cellmate had. Do you know which book? Man’s Search for Meaning! It was translated into Persian ...

Hungry & Foolish, By Steve Jobs On October 8, 2011 · In Viewpoint This is yet the most celebrated speech made by Steve Jobs. It was the 114th Commencement Address to graduating students of Stanford University on June 12, 2005. I am honored to be with you today at your commencement from one of the finest universities in the world. I never graduated from college. Truth be told, this is the closest I’ve ever gotten to a college graduation. Today I want to tell you three stories from my life. That’s it. No big deal. Just three stories! The first story is about connecting the dots I dropped out of Reed College after the first 6 months, but then stayed around as a drop-in for another 18 months or so before I really quit. So why did I drop out? It started before I was born. My biological mother was a young, unwed college graduate student, and she decided to put me up for adoption. She felt very strongly that I should be adopted by college graduates, so everything was all set for me to be adopted at birth b ...

"Don't waste your time on jealously. Sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind. The race is long and, in the end, it's only with yourself." - Taken from Kurt Vonnegut's 1997 Commencement Address at MIT
I am so happy to reconnect with Chris Henrikson. Here is his Commencement Address to Milton's Class of 2006. Thank you, Chris, and your organization, Street Poets. COMMENCEMENT ADDRESS By Street Poets Inc. Founder/Co-Executive Director Chris Henrikson at Milton Academy Graduation (Milton, MA) June 2006. Thank you. It's not every day that one gets to return to the high school from which he graduated to report back on his findings, especially before such a distinguished-looking audience. One discovery of which I think I was always aware, but now understand even better, is that Milton Academy is a truly amazing place. That said, in the interest of full disclosure, I have to confess that I've gotten into the habit of announcing that "I learned more in one year teaching in juvenile detention camp than I did in all my years of school." That line, I realize now, probably plays better to an audience wearing orange jumpsuits with "Los Angeles County Probation" stamped across the back, but I felt compelled to sha . ...

Sir Josiah Stamp, Director of the Bank of England 1940. [(1880-1941) President of the Bank of England in the 1920's, the second richest man in Britain] Speaking at the Commencement Address of the University of Texas in 1927. “Bankers own the earth. Take it away from them but leave them with the power to create credit; and, with a flick of a pen, they will create enough money to buy it back again... If you want to be slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let the bankers control money and control credit.”

This is long but it is an excellent talk and one we all need to ponder. Texas A&M Commencement Address - The students gave a standing ovation; the faculty were deathly silent! Neal Boortz is a Texan, a lawyer, a Texas Aggie (Texas A&M) graduate, and now a nationally syndicated talk show host from Atlanta . His commencement address to the graduates of a recent Texas A&M class is far different from what either the students or the faculty expected. Whether you agree or disagree, his views are certainly thought provoking. "I am honored by the invitation to address you on this august occasion. It's about time. Be warned, however, that I am not here to impress you; you'll have enough smoke blown up your bloomers today. And you can bet your tassels I'm not here to impress the faculty and administration. You may not like much of what I have to say, and that's fine. You will remember it though. Especially after about 10 years out there in the real world. This, it goes without saying, does not apply to those of you ...
Your America To Be Free 1957 Commencement Address at Eureka College I'm sure you all must know the depth of my gratitude for this honor you have done me. What you can't know is how great is my feeling of unworthiness. For some 25 years I have nursed a feeling of guilt about the degree given me here upon the occasion of my own graduation. It was, I feel, more honorary than earned and for all these years I have carefully refrained from referring to myself as a "student" here. My very instinct is to mumble a modest "thanks" and sit down, but that retreat is denied me. Inherent in my invitation is the obligation to make some remarks appropriate to this occasion which shall climax your years of academic endeavor. I do not take this responsibility lightly. Realizing there are many present who are better qualified to perform this function, I have inquired right down to the start of the Processional as to an appropriate theme. There was a temptation, of course, to beg your favor by citing the mistakes of my gener ...

I remember the day we went to the hospital to have Jennifer, I never even thought about a day like this. I remember sitting in an auditorium on a stormy night in Houston considering sending her to Boston 10 days after her 16 th birthday, hearing her sing all dressed up for the first time on the Wesley center stage and hearing her give her own commencement address at UT. God has blessed her and our family with incredibly supportive friends and family. It continues to be an awesome ride. Thank you most for your prayers.

The world has so many lessons to teach you. I consider the world, our earth to be like a school, and our life, the classrooms. Sometimes on our planet life school , the lessons often come dressed up as detours and road blocks and sometimes as full blown crisis.

"We're in a transitional world right now, if you're in any kind of artistic field, because the nature of distribution is changing, the models by which creators got their work out into the world, and got to keep a roof over their heads and buy sandwiches while they did that, are all changing. I've talked to people at the top of the food chain in publishing, in bookselling, in all those areas, and nobody knows what the landscape will look like two years from now, let alone a decade away. The distribution channels that people had built over the last century or so are in flux for print, for visual artists, for musicians, for creative people of all kinds. Which is, on the one hand, intimidating, and on the other, immensely liberating. The rules, the assumptions, the now-we're supposed to's of how you get your work seen, and what you do then, are breaking down. The gatekeepers are leaving their gates. You can be as creative as you need to be to get your work seen. YouTube and the web (and whatever comes after Y ...

As a man was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at any time, break away from their bonds but for some reason, they did not. He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away. “Well,” trainer said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.” The man was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were. Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before? ...

From Steve Jobs Stanford commencement address: "If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart…
"No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true." - Steve Jobs, Stanford University commencement address, 12 June 2005.

So get out there and go for it, but don't be caught waiting. It's great to plan for your future. Just don't live there, because really nothing ever happens in the future. Whatever happens happens now, so live your life where the action is — now." Commencement address ECPI University. E-Club tonight 2000 for the military types!! US Sailors ill see you there!
"Your time is limited,so don't waste it living someone else's life.Don't be trapped by dogma-which is living with the results of other people's thinking.Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice.And most important,have courage to follow your heart and intuition.They somehow already know what you truly want to become.Everything else is secondary.--Steve Jobs-- Stanford Commencement Address

Anna Quindlen's Commencement Address at Villanova The following is (edited) from Pulitzer Prize winning author Anna Quindlen's commencement address to Villanova University, Friday 23 June 2000:   I'm a novelist. My work is human nature. Real life is all I know.
"But Freedom is not enough. You do not wipe away the scars of centuries by saying: Now you are free to go where you want, and do as you desire, and choose the leaders you please. You do not take a person who, for years, has been hobbled by chains and liberate him, bring him up to the starting line of a race and then say, "you are free to compete with all the others," and still justly believe that you have been completely fair.Thus it is not enough just to open the gates of opportunity. All our citizens must have the ability to walk through those gates.This is the next and the more profound stage of the battle for civil rights. We seek not just freedom but opportunity. We seek not just legal equity but human ability, not just equality as a right and a theory but equality as a fact and equality as a result." Excerpts from President Lyndon Baines Johnson's Commencement Address at Howard University, June 4, 1965

Who is the Boss in our case? That would be Chancellor Wrighton, whom I have since 2004 regarded as an ally, though he needs a lot of prompting and political cover to do what must be done to make Washington University in St Louis once again a fit place to work and pay tuition and support financially, and to bring the University into compliance with labor law and restore its tarnished reputation. Here is last year's Open Letter to him. This year's version is coming soon: Chancellor Wrighton is Right On When He Stands With Labor Open Letter to Chancellor Wrighton and the Washington University Community: Please Stand in Solidarity with Labor Dear Chancellor Wrighton, Every Labor Day I send a message to our Washington University Cooperative students, in which I remind them that in your 2004 Commencement Address you thanked the Student Worker Alliance for reminding us to treat our workers decently.

This is from Rob Robert J. Stewart's wall today Fred McFeely Rogers 2002 Commencement Address at Dartmouth College Posted 06/09/02 Wow. What a privilege to be with you all. Since I've arrived here in Hanover many people have greeted me by saying, "It's a beautiful day in this neighborhood." Well, indeed it is a beautiful day. But before I begin, I'd like you to know that I recognize that you who live and work here have had many days, particularly during these last several months, that have been far from beautiful. You've had a painful time and you've handled it with dignity. I feel certain that the Zantops' generous spirits inspire you and it's a great privilege for me to be with you all. When I was at Dartmouth in the late 1940's, the tuition, room, and board all added up to $1100 a year. Nobody owned a home computer and hardly anyone had a television set and for those who did, there was a choice of three channels.
