I love this time of the year when I find videos of commencement speeches. Recently this speech from Hampton University popped up in my Facebook Memories and it make me think about how we live our lives and where we are today as a country, and as a world. With all that is going on, it sometimes feels like we have lost our way – that we have forgotten the basics we were all taught as children. As class President Tim Lee told his fellow students in his commencement speech to overcome the obstacles in life, we need to remember our A, B, Cs. The message really resonated with me so I wrote down what Tim said so I could share in this week’s post.
I hope that you take a minute to read this post and think about each of the letters and the words that go with them. These of the competencies of our lives. See which one’s you need to work on.
Feel free to share this post with your family, friend colleagues. If you want to listen to the speech, click here to access the speech on You Tube
