Barack Obama spoke at Wesleyan’s commencement! He spoke about his what service has meant to him and what service can do for a country. I found it pretty inspiring, and it was also exciting to see him standing at the familiar podium out in front of Olin Library. The speech made me think about how I want to include service in my life.
He was filling in for Ted Kennedy, who was recently diagnosed with brain cancer, and included a moving tribute to Senator Kennedy in his speech.
