A Message To The Class Of 2019

I've been a bit disappointed with some of the commencement addresses this year.

So: I've done a bit of work on my own.

For the distinguished college graduates:

Being a college graduate doesn't distinguish you. Neither does your adversity score nor your diversity quotient.

What will distinguish you in this life are the interpersonal and intellectual connections you make.

What will distinguish you is your contribution.

Do you believe truth exists outside of yourself? Do you seek it? Will you act in furtherance of what you know to be true in your personal and professional lives?

There are four Cardinal Virtues.

There are eight Beatitudes.

There are Ten Commandments.

If you learn and live these rules of the road of life, you will achieve success on your own terms and grow into the best expression of yourself.

You will have lived a distinguished life.

Congratulations, class of 2019!
