As I mentioned earlier, it’s graduation season in the United States, and just as her husband has, the first lady provided inspirational words to college graduates.
Eight months ago, Michelle Obama promised students at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., that if they completed 100,000 hours of community service, she would be their graduation speaker.On May 16, the first lady delivered on that promise, and asked one more request: “Keep going. Keep giving. Keep engaging … It is through the simple act of engaging with your counterparts around the world that you can make the world a safer place.”
“No matter where or how we live, we all have the same dreams: a life of dignity, a chance at opportunity, a better future for our kids,” she said. A transcript of Michelle Obama’s remarks is available on the White House Web site.
