This past weekend I had the honor of hearing Barack Obama speak at the Wesleyan commencement. It was really exciting getting to see him. So many people from the area, but not Wesleyan related, came and apparently there was about 15,000 people that attended. Though it was kind of sad that as soon as Obama finished speaking about 10,000 people left even though no diplomas had been handed out yet. Obama talked about the need for people to volunteer, join the peace corps, or do anything to make a positive difference in the world. He was very inspirational and I recommend everyone to watch his speech on youtube.
