No, it doesn’t cover any deep or controversial topics; the message is quite simple, actually. But that doesn’t make it any less impactful or important.
Wallace explains how the point of education is to be well adjusted and more aware of our everyday surroundings.
We can act in our default settings, or choose to go through life trying harder to understand the circumstances of those around us.
Wallace’s message is relatable for everyone of all ages, regardless of if you are graduating this year, or not.
To the class of 2014: Congratulations! The world needs you, your unique perspective, and your full awareness and participation in life.
