Michelle Obama’s advice for graduates

Michelle Obama

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.

  1. “Education provides broad horizon for understanding things and diplomacy is what sustains things into its cohesion of psyche to keep education growing in one perpetually”

    Tehran nuclear declaration hailed as ‘epic victory for Iran’
    The essence Sri Gnash conveys that nuclear understanding with its misunderstanding on it should have nothing to do with victory where perceptions in international relationships individually stand to mop up times with language expressions on it individually based in strategic terms accommodating the honest or dishonest to react legitimately and thereafter on assessment of what comes out of it that gets a build up individually and universally based through both transcendence of gross as well as through retention of some gross on it because after all human nature is not without the gross and therefore, can not be seen 100 % perfect – be it any country or the individual leader manning a country.
    Every country’s leader has a right to express because nuclear represents fear for one and all with varying perceptions on it and there, if countries and their leaders get involved grossly on their transparent representations, those unknown to those involved under the x-ray naturally come in to seek under a doubt or cloud and it is there, they are not to be taken under the scoring games of diplomacy on it. On the contrary, a country that stands transparent and has achieved a step of cooperation from others of face saving on truth should become more openly bold on the so called scars of the nations of the world of past as time that has gone by because now the world leaders with a renewed awakening over the past times is on its way to technologically and scientifically arrest the menace of nuclear destructive power being the fear for which a universal order of consensus is being built for working through experts and on that diplomatic relations emerging are expected to accommodate fear based perceptions whose architect has been the past for one and all equally.
    Language expressions change overnight in diplomacy because diplomacy basically stands to build universal health of nations in life because life’s epicenter is economics meant for sharing to promote vital and human wealth.
