If you were giving a commencement speech today who would you tell students to emulate?

I wouldn’t. I would tell them not to ‘emulate’ anyone, but to find pieces from things they read, from life experience, from the lives of others, that truly resonate, and to build a life on that resonance, knowing that it changes form year to year.

Creating a ‘hero’ also creates the ‘feet of clay’ that will one day topple that projection into dust. That is a maturation experience and part of the process, yes, but why set it up at all?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
