English teacher David McCullough Jr rants at students in graduation address | Mail Online
This made my day!
Due to the nature of the article, this is more appropriate to P&CA.
Here's another one - except by an astrophysicist:
I need the rest of you to help me fix the world. The rest of the world is getting stupider.
Sheesh, what a killjoy!! I like his message, but considering H.S. graduation only happens once in your lifetime it would've been nice if he could deliver that message in an upbeat manner. Granted, sometimes the best way to get through to someone is with a harsh wake-up call. Hopefully the graduating class took heed in his words and didn't just tune him out when they realized he wasn't coddling or congratulating them...
yeah. hopefully they will work harder to be better to make more money to get taxed more to "share" with the people that don't do anything.
I think its good that people give the kids a little bit of ranting as a wake up call.
But maybe HS graduation is too lte as they have already decided on going to college etc.
