This Is Water

The first 60 seconds of this commencement speech are great. Discussing all of the banalities of American life make me think about civil rights and creative energies towards reducing racial and gender discrimination in America. We all take things for granted sometimes. Is there someone in your life, even from a distance, that you could learn more about? Give them a chance to show you they aren’t scary, and you’ll likely find you have things in common.
