President Obama: ‘Class of 2020’ …. “🎓This is Your Generation’s World to Shape 🎓 …. “!!

~~May 17, 2020~~


I never was a political person, not even when I lived in Puerto Rico. The details I knew where sketchy at best. That has changed since the fateful ‘escalator’ day.

Last night I was excited, expectant, giddy because President Obama would be delivering the commencement speech to the Class of 2020.

He didn’t disappoint!

The program itself was very well prepared, coordinated, inspiring and crowned with the best presentation … in too many long years.

I know it inspired, comforted and soothed me.

In case you missed it, here’s the full speech!


Obama addressed graduates on Saturday during “Graduate Together: America Honors the High School Class of 2020,” an hour-long special during which big-name celebrities, like LeBron James, the Jonas Brothers and Bad Bunny, came together to help homebound high schoolers celebrate their accomplishment.

The 44th president acknowledged that graduating is already a big milestone especially given certain obstacles that some seniors have had to overcome – and that’s not even counting a global pandemic.

“As it appears in … full read/ full credit”

It’s when you get to decide what’s important to you. The kind of career you want to pursue. Who you want to build a family with. The values you want to live by,” Obama said.

And given the current state of the world, that may be kind of scary, but I hope that’s also inspiring.”

Sunday Morning

Anybody’s last day … #SoSad … “Everything is holy. It’s only when we die that the holiness is called up. But it was always holy, all along.”
Samantha Harvey, The Shapeless Unease: A Year of Not Sleeping (Grove Press; May 12, 2020).

Live & Learn

My cousin’s last day was spent out on his bike, a seventy-mile ride on a Saturday morning. He did the ride alone, and nobody had any contact with him after that. At some time in the next twenty-four hours he died, and his body was found by the police on Monday morning when his employer called them, worried because he hadn’t turned up for work. He always turned up for work.

I would wish for my last day to involve an act of freedom–a walk by the ocean, a long bike ride, something I love. I hope that the walk and the bike ride were suffused with joy, with pleasure, for my stepdad and my cousin. Neither knew it was their last time to do that thing. If they’d known, would they have enjoyed it more or less? Eventually, everything has to be done for the final time. There must…
